How to determine the radius for "non-crown" applications

info For Crown applications see: "Crown Radius- How to Determine the Radius for Crown Applications "

it may be necessary for us to pre curve the moulding to the approimate radius needed to provide the best possible fit and finish.

Pre-curving to a specified radius does not add any additional cost or time to the order and ensures the best possible fit and finish. To pre-curve the moulding we need to know the radius.

The radius can be calculated as follows:

How to measure the radius for a half circle
Half Circle

Radius = 1/2 width

How to measure the radius for a quarter circle
Quarter Circle

Radius = Rise

How to measure the radius for a full circle
Full Circle

Radius = 1/2 Width

Eyebrow Arch

Use the radius calculator to calculate radius

 

infoThe radius does not have to be exact. The moulding will flex to fit as long as the calculated radius close (+- 10%). The closer the radius the better the fit.
