Having pioneered two-piece extruded aluminum trims, EasyTrim Reveals has innovated the category segment once again with our new Adjustable Outside (105 degree to 165 degree) and Adjustable Inside (90 degree to 165 degree) Corners for panel, LAP and Transitions.
There are many elements of a building’s exterior that can lead the observer to see the building as beautiful and interesting. Since most buildings share right-angle or 90 degree outside and inside corners, a building with sharp or oblique outside or inside corners will certainly catch the eye and stand out from the crowd.
Traditional extruded aluminum outside and inside corners have been one-piece 90 degree profiles. When an architect or designer wanted to venture outside convention and create a building with non 90 degree angled corners, they were forced to use two separate j trims. The installer would then be left with the task of using their ingenuity to install the j trims in a way that created a straight and true corner, oftentimes having to overcome framing issues and a buildings natural habit to pull apart at the corners over time.
Picture the feature-rich EasyTrim Reveals j trims with our patented ez.bump tucked underneath the ½” tab. We have designed a clever hinge joint that connects two opposing j trims to create an easy to align and easy to install corner profile assembly for non 90 degree corner conditions.
What’s in it for the architect? The architect can now design contemporary buildings with non-traditional corner details. The architect also retains the water management, fit & finish features and installation efficiencies they have come to expect from EasyTrim Reveals profiles. With EasyTrim Reveals Adjustable Corners the architect can now create visually impactful wall segments that articulate and create intriguing segments of light and shadow. “Flatiron” style buildings on odd shaped parcels of land can be easily realized with stock, off-the-shelf products created specifically for use on buildings that aren’t a collection of square corners.
What’s in it for the siding installer? Ask any installer and they will tell you the buildings they work on are rarely square. Some products they use accentuate this problem, while other products help mask it. When using individual j trims on separate wall planes, framing irregularities will be transferred to the j trims resulting in a corner that can be tight (close) on the bottom and loose (open) at the top, or vice versa. As the building settles and shifts over time, the impact on the separate trims increases as they pull apart. Even when an installer uses his most skilled sider on this detail, the process of aligning the separate profiles takes longer than it should and his success will be variable and destined to deteriorate over time. EasyTrim Reveals Adjustable Corners allow the installer to quickly align the assembly on the two separate wall planes if they are completely straight or somewhat un-square. If the wall surfaces are un-square, the Adjustable Corners will help hide that imperfection and create a straight and true architectural line. This means the installer can use any installer, not just his most skilled laborer to handle the task of installing non 90 degree corners, quickly and expertly.
EasyTrim Reveals Adjustable Outside and Inside Corners solve real world problems with mind-boggling simplicity, ingenious design and beautiful results.
