Fypon Craftsman Cove Trimmable Crosshead

Crossheads are a decorative unit that go above the door unit. Fypon developed a solution for crossheads that are too long or too short in the field. Trimmable crossheads make it easy during field application because they are easily adjusted in length and can be customized for a door, window, or garage opening. The Craftsman Cove Crosshead is a trimmable crosshead profile.

After trimming, an end cap needs to be attached to the sides to finish off the look.

When attached, the end caps overlap the crosshead the size of the rabbet on the back side of the end caps.

The part number for the craftsman cove trimmable crosshead is CHCCWWXHBT where:

  • CH = Crosshead
  • CC = Craftsman Cove
  • WW = Width
  • H = Height
  • BT = Bottom trim

The part number for the craftsman cove trimmable crosshead end cap is CHCCWXHBT where:

  • CH = Crosshead
  • CC = Cove Cap
  • W = Width
  • H = Height
  • BT = Bottom trim

When ordering the craftsman cove crosshead:

  • Measure the overall width where the crosshead and end caps will sit.
  • Select the end cap width needed. The end cap should coordinate with the pilaster or moulding on either side of the door/window. If no moulding is used then any end cap width can be chosen.
  • Determine the trimmable crosshead size needed (overall width needed – end cap back surface X 2)
  • Select the trimmable crosshead that will work.
