Ready-Hat® hand-bendable hat channel is available in 7/8” x 1-1/4” 20 gauge material with G60 galvanization in 10’-0” lengths. It has a low profile, is economical and easy to form by hand to the exact convex or concave shape you need on the job-site.
Ready-Hat® is ideal to wrap columns, as furring on curved walls or to create coves, barrel vaults, groin vaults, soffits and serpentine ceilings. Once formed, Ready-Hat® holds it shape without the use of fasteners or impact locks.
The ideal alternative.
Ready-Hat® can be installed over wood or metal framing and curved substrates such as concrete and masonry. It is compatible with drywall, plaster, EIFS, rain screen, and many cladding systems. Instead of curving studs and joists, builders can now save money by using straight framing members and creating the desired curves with Ready-Hat channels.
