General Design & Manufacturing Guidelines
  • BEMO recommends that the Technical Services Group be consulted on all curved applications. The curving capabilities listed above are to be used as general guidelines only.
  • Panel widths: BEMO 305mm, 400mm, and 500mm.
  • For curved panels: Aluminium 3105 H14, Steel Grade 33 and Copper 1/4 to 1/2 hard.
  • For information on curving BEMO 500 mm, please consult BEMO 1-800-926-2366.
Painted Material Curving Considerations
  • On radii less than 10.5m the backside of the BEMO panel may exhibit paint marring induced during the curving process.
  • On radii less than16.6m steel panels may exhibit a slight "dishing" effect within 150mm to 300mm of the end of each curved panel. These ends can be field cut if required, providing the extra length estimated originally for the project. In most applications the "dishing" effect is not objectionable.
  • Embossed materials on radii less than 8.3m the top of the metal may have visible marring from the curving process. A natural result of laying a straight panel down to match a radius will induce stresses into the metal surfaces of the roof system. The only proven way to minimize, not eliminate, the visual effects of oil-canning on a curved application is through the use of a mechanically curved assembly. Un-even substrate conditions will transfer through the roof panels and provide poor aesthetic results.

Eliminate Wet Seals

BEMO-Roof offers significant advantages when manufactured using exotic metals like ZINC, ALUMINIUM, STAINLESS STEEL and COPPER. These types of materials not only provide the beauty of a natural metal but they also allow for the unique option of soldering and/or welding specific conditions. These particular types of custom installations virtually eliminate the need for wet sealants in many detail treatments.
