Completing the Butt Joint where 2 of the Preformed Curved Drywall Panels come together is simple. In addition to fastening the panels to a stud, every 16", use some simple blocking to support the middle of the cuvre. Use a block a minimum of 6" Wide to straddle the span and insert a screw through each panel into the blocking. The block can be free floating and it is not necessary to tie back to the wall or ceiling framing. For Panels with a Curve Radius less than 13", 1 block in the middle of the curve is sufficient. For Panels larger than 13" Curve Radius, we recommend at least 2 blockings, evenly spaced along the curve. The seam can then be taped and finished.

 

 

 

Tired of the look of Flat top Kneewall or stair partition wall?  One of our customers, Schmid and Rhodes in Tennesee, asked us to help them create a roundtop wall cap for one of their custom projects.  The challenge was, how do you bend drywall around a 2 x 4?  Tight radius are always a challenge but the special techniques developed by Modern Curved Soutions were up to the task and created a preformed curved drywall piece that fits over a standard 2x4. These 8 ft sections of Bullnose wrap around the framed wall and easily screw in place. Now it would have been easy to miter the corner but we're all about the curves!  So we used our curved panels to make a compound curved drywall endcap to sweep the curve profile around the corner.

Thanks to Rocky and the great team at Schmid and Rhodes for the opportunity to help with this fun Project!
