L. C-Fast Trim
The Concealed Fastener Trim (C-Fast Trim or CFT) is a unique trim that allows the installer to hide all attachment fasteners for the trim without having to cover them with drywall mud and tape. The installer finishes the wall and then attaches the base of the C-Fast Trim (Part B) to the wall. Once all base pieces are in place, the installer snaps or taps (with rubber mallet) the cap of C-Fast Trim (Part A) onto the base. The cap completely covers the base piece and all fasteners from view. No drywall mud or tape is required in the installation of this trim.
Part A and Part B of the Concealed Fastener Trim are standard extruded aluminum alloy 6063 T5 and are .050 thick. The Concealed Fastener Trim comes in 10' lengths and shall have a standard Mill finish. Clear Anodized and Alodine finishes as well as other factory finishes and custom paint orders are available.
