S-Shaped Decking Panels

Curveline Inc. says its “crimp-curving” process can curve structural roof deck panels into S-curves, sine waves and other multiple-radius concave/convex shapes. The crimping process allows the manufacturer to create S-shaped panels up to 26 feet long when using 20-gauge or 22-gauge nestable decking, or up to 20 feet long with 18-gauge decking. The process does not require stretch forming or added structural support. Customers can buy standard or acoustical nestable B-deck panels in 22-gauge to 18-gauge steel and have them forwarded to the company for custom curving.
