Punched Webs

Contour Track is permanently locked into place by

securing it to the primary supporting structure using

the pre-punched holes conveniently placed throughout

the web.

Expandable Ribbon

Technology

Contour Track flexible framing products feature

expandable ribbon technology that expands and contours to

your desired curve, bend or radius. The ribbon technology

offers curveable flexibility, while maintaining or holding its

shape during installation. Many comparable flexible tracks

on the market are very flimsy, easily distort or flop around

and are often very difficult for one person to install.

Hinged Support Leg

Contour Track

The other leg of the Dietrich Contour Track features

pre-punched, easy-to-cut guide holes when contour track is

used in arches or extreme radius conditions like column

framing. In these conditions, the ribbons are quickly removed

with snips and the trim holes are partially cut to provide

maximum flexibility and versatility. Unlike competitive

products that require multiple products for different type of

curved applications, Dietrich Contour Track does it all!

Interlocking Track

Contour Track flexible framing members bend both ways and

easily form challenging compound curves. S-curves are easily

made by overlapping and interlocking one two-inch web

section. Screw attach, then hand bend to the desired effect.

UltraSTEEL Technology

Dietrich Contour Track features Dietrich UltraSTEEL framing

technology. Unlike the smooth surface of other flexible

track products, which tend to inhibit the “grabbing” of screws

during installation, the “dimpled” surface of the CNTB actually

helps to facilitate screw installation. The “dimpled” surface also

makes the product much safer to handle.

Dietrich UltraSTEEL Framing is an internationally patented

method of altering the characteristics of the base strip steel.

This process effectively work hardens the steel with two mating

rolls. As a result, Dietrich UltraSTEEL offers:

■ Greatly reduced screw stripping

■ Virtually eliminates screw riding or walking

■ Stiffer, more rigid construction

■ Improved safety by reducing sharp edges

and lips

It all adds up to:

Faster, Easier and Safer Installation
