Radius Track Corporation is a manufacturing and custom fabrication company located in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Radius Track offers consistency in quality and repeatability for any given radius of curved standard studs and track. Our materials and tools can be shipped anywhere in the world, ready for use or installation.
Until recently, drywall contractors charged a premium because curved walls were a headache to build. Now, with steel framing solutions from Radius Track, they're almost as easy to build as straight walls. Radius Track innovations make even complex projects like exterior domes, curved trusses and compound surfaces much easier, with award-winning results.
The revolution began with Track Bender. In 1996, Radius Track introduced an ingenious tool that created curved tracks and studs in less than a minute. Instead of cutting and strapping the steel by hand, drywall contractors used Track Bender to shape ordinary C-channels quickly and accurately to any radius.
At first, Track Bender was a well-kept secret among contractors who wanted a competitive edge. Projects that normally took two men two weeks of cutting and strapping were finished in a single day.
Even today, Track Bender is the most cost-effective way to bend steel studs and track accurately and consistently. Building curved walls with Track Bender costs about 10% more than making straight walls.
Our strength is in the special bend. Track Bender proved that our patented bending process not only worked, but also saved a lot of time and money. So in 1997 Radius Track expanded its capabilities to offer custom curved tracks and studs that featured the same bending process in heavier gauges. Radius Track began supplying structural custom curving members for high-rise buildings in 1999.
Over the years, the company's custom services continued to expand. People liked the convenience of steel framing delivered already curved to the site and the assurance that all pieces were curved accurately and consistently to spec.
For jobs of all sizes, any shape, any length, and any gauge, contractors found that Radius Track's custom curving was the lowest installed price per foot. To assure people that Radius Track welcomed small jobs, President Chuck Mears established a policy that holds true today: "We won't ship less than one piece!" – less–ZoomInfo
