Download Submittal for J, L and U-Trims
J, L and U Trim are metal trim accessories used to protect free edges of gypsum wallboards ranging in thickness from 1/2” to 5/8” among a variety of uses.
Super Stud metal J, L and U-Trims is used at the termination of a gypsum board finished wall or ceiling. This may be at a door or window opening, at a transition to a different type of finish, or at any edge where a clean, straight, smooth edge is required. Super Stud Trim products come in custom-fit cardboard packaging, to protect product edges from shipping damage. Super Stud trims are made in the USA, with zinc-coated steel: minimum 25% recycled content, and 100% recyclable.
The short leg of Super Stud J-Trim is hemmed for a safe, clean, smooth edge, and both legs are angled for a tight grip on gypsum or other sheathing. The long leg has a slight rib at its base to act as a screed for any finishes that are applied, and the outer edge of the long leg has a small bevel for a smooth tight fit.
The short leg of Super Stud L-Trim is hemmed for a safe, clean, smooth edge, and both legs are angled for a tight grip on gypsum or other sheathing. The long leg is knurled and perforated and specifically treated for optimal acceptance of gypsum– or chemical-based joint compounds: with maximum adhesion and minimal sag.
The knurled leg of our U-Trim has a smooth, dull finish, specifically treated and perforated for optimal acceptance of gypsum– or chemical-based joint compounds: with maximum adhesion and minimal sag. U-Trim may be nailed, stapled, or screwed to the gypsum, wood, or steel substrate.
