1. Form Flex-C Trac into the desired curve and secure the shape by screwing through the side holes as recommended.
2. Form a corresponding curve by inverting the original and mating them, back to back, to match precisely.
3. Third, After confirming your layout, achor D-Flexion Post to the top deck. The D-flexion Post has pre-punched holes in the base plate for use with drills and screws. For powder actuated fastening, simply anchor through the metal plate itself.
4. Plumb up to the surface where you want to fasten the upper curved Flex-C Trac.
5. Insert a D-Flexion Post through a pivot hole in the curve you have made for the top of the wall. Insert as many as you need for the desired strength of the wall.
6. Thread a nut on the end of the D-Flexion Post a few turns.
7. Lift the top curve of Flex-C Trac (with inserted Posts) tight up to the desired plumb marks on the ceiling. (This normally requires more than one person.)
8. Turn the rectangular plate of the D-Flexion Post so that the anchoring holes are visible and accessible.
9. Anchor to the top deck or surface using your preferred method. (Screws, powder actuated fasteners, etc. are acceptable.)
10. When you have secured the Posts, the Flex-C Trac will hang on the D-Flexion Post while you install the studs.
(After you have completed the installation of the wall studs, the nuts may be removed or left on, as they are primarily to aid in installation.)
Note- If you desire 1" deflection (2" total vertical) cut the studs at least one inch shorter than the top deck. Standard D-Flexion Post will accommodate up to 2 1/4" deflection (4 1/2" total vertical movement). Longer Posts can be special ordered if required.
