IMPORTANT: SpeedCove should not be installed over FRP, it should only be adhered underneath to the solid wall sub straight. The FRP must be terminated on top of the SpeedCove in the manufacture’s channel strip, and the joint must be sealed water tight with an appropriate adhesive and coated with the finish epoxy; or, a high-grade silicone over the dried epoxy finish.
