Deflection Bead Case Study: Citizen Park

St. louis, missouri

The Opus Group developed a luxury apartment complex in St. Louis' Central West End neighborhood. The Citizen Park Complex provides modern amenities without sacrificing the unique character of the neighborhood. The apartment complex features 10,000 square feet of retail space on the ground floor and a full-time concierge service.

Movement in buildings is caused by different types of loads being applied to the materials, connections, or assemblies of a building. Movement can lead to cracking, crushing, degradation, and noise. To prevent interior damage from the effects of movement, Trim-Tex Deflection Bead was installed at the head of wall. Deflection Bead is used to prevent inside corner ceiling cracking due to deflection in multistory structures.   

Instead of the traditional method of paper taping bath enclosures, which is a food source for mold, Trim-Tex Shower Bead was installed. Shower Bead features a tear away strip that protects the tub flange from mud, ensuring a clean crisp finished edge.
