FAS-093X Fire Rated Control Joint, manufactured by CEMCO, is a composite control joint with intumescent tape factory applied to the back side of the control joint. The FAS-093X has been tested according to UL-2079 “Test For Fire Resistance of Building Joint Systems” and is used to relieve stresses of expansion and contraction of drywall interior partitions or ceilings running in a horizontal or vertical direction. The opening is protected by an orange plastic tape to indicate the fire rating. This tape is removed after joint compound has been applied and the finish is completed. The 093X can be used on metal or wood framing on one or both sides of the wall. The section is fabricated from 0.015 mil hot-dipped galvanized steel.
