Legacy Field-Fabricated Installation Systems
In May 2019, Laminators introduced our new and improved field-fabricated installation systems that are fully integrated back-drained and ventilated systems, with an optional continuous insulation component. Since the onset of the new systems, we have renamed the previous 1-Piece, Tight-Fit Molding and Clip & Caulk systems as “Legacy Versions” of our systems. These Legacy Field-Fabricated Installation Systems are ideal for various architectural features, as well as when building codes do not require the high performance as designed in our new and improved back-drained and ventilated systems.
Note regarding Laminators installation systems application:
All Legacy System Support documents represent each installation system as it has been designed, detailed, and tested and its relationship with a typical exterior wall assembly. Each system is for use over plywood (structural) or non-structural (gypsum) sheathing and also addresses NFPA 285 compliance. As such, support documents may be considered a baseline for a Laminators installation system.
Due to the nature of a “Legacy Version”, full testing support may not be available for a specific installation system and exterior wall assembly combination. As such, there is no implied minimum level of project-specific air, structural, water, and/or fire performance.
