M-Slide™ 2-Piece Expansion Joint

AMICO's M-Slide™ is a new water management accessory that works like the #40 Joint for movement, but improves the flashing and drainage from the area as needed. The M-Slide™ Horizontal combines a weep screed design with a larger, solid flange (on bottom) to provide intermediate flashing/drainage at mid-floor expansion. The M-Slide™ Vertical utilizes larger flanges and a stiffer design to “pre-set” the vertical joint for proper attachment. The 7/8” grounds will work for both 3/4” and 7/8” cladding systems; other size grounds and zinc alloy are available on request. Produced in 10’ lengths. Stocked in AMICO's Birmingham, AL and Fontana, CA facilities.

  • Larger top and bottom flanges for attachment
  • Tight, camber design that provides an opening for a reveal, if needed
  • 25-gauge, G-90 pre-galvanized steel finish
  • Two versions for horizontal and vertical applications
