Curved 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.
For track sections, use Studco Ezy-Track, a unique flexible track system that allows you to create simple radius corners or combination curves. Once you have curved the track to the desired shape, 'lock' the track using a self-drill screw through the sliding strap into the track segments. Studco Ezy-Track can also be used in deflection situations. Ensure that a suitable anchor or fixing is placed in the track at the location of each stud.
|Studco Ezy-Track is available in 51mm, 64mm, 76mm, 92mm and 150mm wide and the minimum curving radius is 180mm for all sizes.|
|Use Studco lipped steel studs at the centres specified below, fixing the studs to the track (where applicable) through the sliding strap using self-drill screws.|
Application of the plasterboard to the wall framing may require preparation such as water spraying or sponge soaking, to aid with curvature of the lining board material. Any such preparation should be done on the compression side of the plasterboard and strictly in accordance with the lining board manufacturers specifications.
