New Lightweight Laminated Drywall Corner Solution from CertainTeed Delivers Perfect Corners in a Smarter Stick


(Malvern, Pa.) – Building professionals now have a superior entry-level alternative to traditional metal and paper-metal drywall corner products. Introducing CertainTeed® Levelline® Outside 90 laminated drywall corner beads. Levelline Outside 90 corners are easier to install, less than half of the weight of traditional beads and have no sharp edges, making them safer to install as well. Unlike other beads, Levelline Outside 90 offers exceptional durability, won’t rust or hold a memory, and promises crisp lines without ridges — all at a competitive cost.

“Corner damage is one of the primary aesthetic reasons for drywall callbacks,” said Dave Engelhardt, president of CertainTeed Gypsum. “Levelline Outside 90 gives contractors an affordable solution that delivers stronger, more damage-resistant corners.”

CertainTeed Levelline corner beads install just like conventional products, but unlike metal or paper metal beads, their high bond allows them to withstand significant shifting caused by drying or settling lumber, humidity and temperature differences. Levelline corners are available in an outside 90-degree profile in convenient eight, nine and 10 foot lengths. Custom lengths are available upon request.
