Hat-channel curves walls

Radius Track Corp.'s Ready-Hat channels can be bent by hand without special tools, and can be used to form vaults, serpentine walls, coves and other architectural features. The hat-channels simplify forming curves in light-gauge, steelframed walls and ceilings, and can be installed over wood or metal framing, curved substrates including concrete and masonry, or used for curved formwork and false work.
Ready-Hat channels are 7/8 inches high by 1 1/4 inches wide with an overall width of 2 1/2 inches.
