Curved ceilings & walls add a stunning perspective to the interior of modern buildings. Constructing a curved wall requires considerable skill and forethought and is dependent on a number of variable factors. We have the right solutions to help you achieve your walls & ceilings with our curved stud and track.
Constructing a curved wall can add a pleasing style to a room, and it can also be used to create a dramatic statement. Curved walls and ceilings are a popular feature of many modern buildings, from commercial and industrial structures to residential properties. Creating a curved wall is a very time-consuming and skilful job, and requires a great deal of forethought. It also requires the assistance of specially designed studs and tracks, created to support the curve of the wall without losing the aesthetic appeal. There are a number of different features which can be used in order to ensure that you get the best from your construction. SBS Direct is happy to introduce a number of different curved stud and track designs which can be used to construct curved walls or ceilings.
Modern buildings and curved walls
In modern buildings, the design of a curved wall can add an aesthetic appeal to any room. It contrasts sharply with traditional square wall, but it can also be used to reflect the traditional appearance of many mediaeval temples and churches. Combining the traditional styles of building with modern materials can help to create an interesting and dramatic wall or ceiling. For example, the use of modern steel studs and tracks helped to support a large dome for a church built in the Byzantine style. In order to get the most from your curved wall, it is important to ensure that you buy the materials that you need to get the perfect fit.
Buy or bend?
There are several choices that you have to make when it comes to finding the right materials for your curved wall. By far the most important is deciding whether you want to buy your tracks prefabricated, for example in the form of:
- flexible tracks
- pre-curved tracks
- adjustable tracks
- compatible studs
There are also other options, including the use of straight tracks which are then bent by hand in order to get them into the right position for the wall. This is time-consuming, and often labour-intensive, since several people need to work on positioning the track and installing the studs. SBS Direct offers a variety of options including curved tracks and compatible studs which take the labour out of the curved wall, and make fitting walls, ceilings, and buildings with curves much easier. Although straight tracks are less expensive, the effort involved in having them altered can be very costly in the long term.
Key design aspects
When you are constructing a curved wall for a property, there are several important design aspects that you need to consider. One of the most important is the angle, or radius of the curve. The amount of curve in the wall will affect where you position the studs, although close installation of studs can create a smoother and more elegantly rounded wall.
