“J” METAL 3/8” to 1 3/8” GROUNDS
This square nosed casing was originally provided in 1 3/8" to accommodate 1" of rigid insulation and 3/8" of one-coat stucco with weep holes in the ground flange located under the rigid insulation. This casing or plaster stop now includes one-coat casing beads for use with approved one-coat systems that require this type of bead at the base of the wall. Nailing flange width is 3 ½ inches. This should not be considered a true foundation weep screed for three-coat stucco applications. "J" metal is manufactured in Fontana, CA.

Note: AMICO recommends the use of galvanized lath and either zinc alloy or vinyl accessories for all exterior stucco applications. All joints should be caulked.
