Drywall Flat Boxes
To make a flat, smooth finish, you need to trowel the joint. Drywall flat boxes are produced specifically for that purpose. They are run over each joint in turn, trowelling the compound and fluttering the edges for a precise crown. These are used to ensure a smoother finish across all drywall edges to give your drywall joint a more consistent look.
