Fast Cap Case Study: The Aberdeen West Loop

chicago, il

The Aberdeen West Loop offers 75 luxury apartments in Chicago's West Loop neighborhood. The apartment complex features rooftop amenities, skyline views and is located conveniently for restaurants, shops and access to transportation. 

Deflection Bead was installed against the concrete ceiling to prevent inside corner cracking from deflection in the 11 story building. Deflection Bead features a co-extruded flexible gasket that compresses and expands during deflection, providing protection for up to 7/16" of deflection. To finish doorways, wall ends, and closets with ease, Fast Cap & Archway was installed in the building. Fast Cap eliminates the need for the drywall face as well as the need for two corner beads. Tear Away L Bead was used to finish the rough edge of the drywall surrounding the windows in the apartment complex.
