Custom-curved decking panels create innovative roofs
By using “crimp-curved” panels, architects and contractors can design attention-grabbing recreation centers, entryways, lobbies, covered walkways and concourses, transit stations and other structures. Panels can be curved into domes, arches and even S-curves and other multiple-radius shapes. Crimp-curving method increases the strength and rigidity of profiled metal panels. Enables use of lighter-gauge material to reduce framing and substructure costs, while extending life span of conventionally formed metal decks. Customers can purchase panels from the decking manufacturer of choice, who will forward panels to Curveline service center for curving to desired specifications. Curveline Inc., Ontario, Calif.
