Matching flexible moulding is available for arched and oval windows, as well as curved walls and ceilings. ValuFlex gives you all the advantages of radiused wood at a fraction of the cost!

How To Measure

Half Circle

Length = Radius + Width of Moulding × 3.145 ÷ 12 (For full-circle, Multiply half-circle footage by 2)

Archtop

(Eyebrow or Springline)

Casing: Length = Width + Height + 6" ÷ 12" Crown: Length = Width + Height + 12" ÷ 12"

Oval

Paper or Cardboard Template (Always Required)

Ellipse

Crown

valuflex measuring crown
  1. Does the wall curve inside (concave) or outside (convex)?

  2. Radius of wall - IR (inside radius), OR (outside radius)

  3. Length of moulding needed (add for waste) to cover entire area

  4. How many pieces?

Crown, Built Ups

  1. Order as IR (Inside Radius, aka: Concave) or (Outside Radius, aka: Convex) radius.

  2. Any moulding used on the wall: order as

  3. Any moulding used on the ceiling: order as a radius.

    1. OR (Outside Radius), you must add the projection of the crown to the ceiling moulding radius. Example: If using the 330MUL on a ceiling with the 410MUL crown which has a projection of 4½” and the wall is a 60” radius, 330MUL should be ordered as a 64½” radius.

    2. IR (Inside Radius), you must subtract the projection of the crown from the radius, therefore a wall with a 60” radius less the 4½” projection = 55½” ISR for the 330MUL.

Base

valuflex-measuring-base
  1. If Base is being used as Baseboard or as part of a Crown detail on a wall, the Flex Base does not need to be pre-cast to any radius. They are sold as straights and only total lineal footage is needed.

  2. If Baseboards are used as Casing the base must be ordered to the radius (like "Casing" section). If base is being used as part of a Crown detail where they lay flat on the ceiling (not on the wall), then information as indicated in "Crown, Build-Up" section C1 or C2 must be provided.

Casing

  1. On true half-circles, order by radius (equals ½ of diameter) or by diameter. (Please state “radius” or “diameter” when ordering.)

  2. When ordering arches, please state “span and rise” (ie: 21” span x 6” rise)

  3. Ellipses & Ovals always require a template.

Ovals

  1. A paper or cardboard template must be provided.

  2. Specify IR (Inside Radius aka: concave) or OR (Outside Radius aka:convex)

  3. We manufacture the FLEX so that the seams are in the middle as shown in the drawing (to the left). This allows for easier installation.

Panel Moulds, Lineal Moulds, Chair Rail

  1. If used horizontally on curved walls, straight lengths will work.
