Curved elevations and neatly formed secret-fix corners are easily achieved with the QuadCore Evolution range.

Panels can be curved vertically and horizontally to create large sweeping elevations or used for more understated corner sections.

Panels can also be cranked and mitred to form internal or external corner units or to create depth to a boxed and recessed window detail.
