The mated joint is an interlocking joint in which the adjacent edges are shaped differently.

Open-drained joints The adoption of the open joint avoids the risk of loss of adhesion or contact of the seal, the need for extreme care in positioning the components in assembly and the need to depend on close tolerance limits. In an open-drained joint, air penetration into the building is prevented by an air-tight barrier at the back of the joint, where any sealant used is only slightly, if at all, exposed to the weather, and where it may be so disposed and sized that it can function well within its capabilities.
