Every so often, an elegant solution to a niggling problem comes along that makes a practitioner such as juror Jinhee Park say, "I need it right now." Such is the case with the Integrated Reveal Base, a cleverly devised system that allows the popular revealed-edge base detail to rely on the precision of a continuous, stainless steel channel. A sheet of gypsum wallboard slips into a J-bead that is factory-spot-welded to the channel below. A coat of plaster finishes the surface and hides the hardware, allowing for precise details with minimal handiwork, and a reduced potential for sagging gypsum or uneven reveals. "It’s so simple, but I’m so glad that someone addressed that [problem] and solved it," said juror Gordon Gill. “I can’t tell you how often this has become an annoyance. It’s not rocket science. But it is very valuable.”
