We have the ability to prefabricate any custom arch kit you could imagine. To get started, we simply need a few measurements along with a picture, drawing, or sketch of what you have in mind. From here, we’ll take your measurements and create a 3D illustration for your approval. So, send us those doodles on your morning coffee napkin, and let’s see if we can’t build you a custom arch kit.
Since we’ll be making you a one-of-a-kind custom archway, we’ll be sure to give you an installation drawing that will allow you to quickly and easily install your custom arch kit.
Drywalling a custom arch kit will entail the same steps you’d use in drywalling any other style or archway. The process is comprised of measuring the curvature of the arch, cutting the drywall to the curvature and depth, forming and fastening in place.
Drywall, plaster, wood veneer, brick veneer, trim, tile … the list is seemingly endless. Whether you want your custom archway to have a simple or an ornate finish, the choice is yours.
|Material||Medium Density Fiberboard (MDF)(High Grade Moisture Resistant)|
|Thickness (in.)||1” – 1 ½” (depending on width)|
|Depth (in.)||1” to 5 ½” Depths over 5 ½” will be made as a 2 piece split. A 2 piece split is a 5 ½” deep arch with a split cut down the center. When installing, finish the split cut and put one 2 ¾” piece on the front and the other 2 ¾” piece on the back of the opening.|
The total height of your custom arch is the total amount of height you’ll need in-the-clear, which includes the thickness of the arch. So with this in mind, how much height would you comfortably forgo to achieve your custom arch design? An easy way to determine this, is to make a mark on the side of the opening at the lowest point you’d still be comfortable. The distance from the header to the mark would be your total height. Since the design from your picture, drawing or sketch will ultimately determine the total height, this will temporarily act as the maximum height limitation when designing your custom arch kit.
Depending upon the size of your order, most custom arch kits ship in boxes via UPS Ground. If you order several arch kits or if you also order a ceiling or wall design kit, it could ship on a pallet via LTL common carrier. If you’d like to know how it will ship before placing your order, simply call us and we’ll let you know.
“There has never been a design by any of our architects that Archways & Ceilings has not been able to manufacture. Once you have used Archways & Ceilings, you will never want to do the arches and ceilings any other way.”
