Bending

The new aluminum divider bars used to set the protective covering will be bent to closely match the existing millwork. Associated Crafts craftsmen will custom fit and bend each divider bar on the site. Installing protective covering by bending the new protective covering frame minimizes shadowing and leaves the building with a more appealing installation. Associated Crafts extrudes its own specially designed framing metal to be able to contour this framing to unequalled standards. Each Associated Crafts crew is equipped with our own custom designed benders that are exclusive to the Associated Crafts family.
