We can custom cut sloped and notched panels
Clear Vinyl Plastic enclosure panels require a bit of guidance and we like you to email us a digital photo so that we can help you plan your project. Unlike our Mosquito Netting Curtains, these orders must be phoned in.
We can cut almost any geometric shape including sloped panels and we will show you how to prepare your measurements in PLAN
where we address both shed
roofs and gabled roofs.More odd shapes.
While we can cut sloped panels, tracking attachment may not be practical since the panel either needs to be drawn uphill or will drag on the floor if drawn down hill. But we have a few tricks up our sleeve to deal with this. It all depends upon the steepness of the slope. For slopes less than 1:12 (a 1" drop for every 12" of width), tracking a sloped panel should be fine.
Strategy For Tracking Option
If it is steeper than a 1:12 pitch, you can either use Velcro® attachment for the entire sloped panel, or create a false level header beam.
A false header beam can be any piece of wood that won't sag. A good candidate might be a 1 " x 4 " made of a hardwood turned on it's side where the bottom is 1" wide and the sides are 4" tall. The tracking and curtain are relatively light and the track is only 5/8" wide so it will easily under mount to the 1" bottom. The key is selecting a wood beam that won't sag over time.
If your sloped exposure is very wide, you will need to use a thicker/taller false header beam. With this false header beam, you will have a rectangle beneath the beam and a triangle above the beam. We simply Velcro® attach the top triangular panel and track attach the lower rectangular panel. Sometimes there is already a level header beam in place and is common for gabled roof lines (below). If so, you must have good Karma and planning is relatively easy.
Sometimes the roof line is flat but the floor slopes. This is common for concrete patios to allow for drainage away from the house. If the height difference along any exposure is 1 1/2 inches or less, ignore the slope and measure for a simple rectangle using the tallest height. If the slope is more pronounced, call us and we will cut the floor slope for you.
