Given the dimensions, calculate the radius of curvature. Consider in calculations that the arch will reduce the space of your opening.


First of all, place aluminum in the openingDirect guides, located horizontally and vertically, fix them with screws. From the hypocarcarton sheet, cut out 4 identical triangles. They should have right angles with the legs slightly longer than the arc radius.


Cut out the curvature on the triangles. For convenience, first make a template: on the sheet of Whatman draw this rounding. The resulting figures are placed in the corners of the opening for 2 pieces on each side.


The profile walls are cut with approximate steps of 5-8Cm, and curl the profile back by the cut out rounding. Secure the entire structure with screws between the triangles. Where the profile will contact the ends of the opening, metal bend inward and secure with a dowel. All unnecessary protruding parts Drywall And profile cut.


Next cut out of Drywall The strip is slightly wider than the thickness of the wall (3-4 cm)Length make 10 cm longer than the arch bend. Drill holes in the strip in 8-9 cm increments. Imitation of the perforated tape will be obtained. To give flexibility, dry the gypsum board with a damp cloth. The band is attached to the end profiles, guided by an arched bend.
