Product Overview
  • Ideal for Sheet Metal Fabricators and Solar Energy Panel Installers
  • Unparalleled Bending Power
  • Incorporates the Latest Technology

CRL's Metal Brake and Shear is designed for single user set-up and operation in the shop or on the job site. It will bend residential grade metals and most commercial metals used in roofing, siding, window, and gutter installations. The 14" (356 mm) throat allows for complex bending profiles and features a unique cam-locking system, along with new POWERslot™ technology for improved bending leverage. The stainless steel strip protects the bending edge and provides a superior guide for scoring material.

NOTE: Capacities are based on standard metal properties for coil & sheet. Please contact CRL for capacities on your specific material.

For cutting or shearing metal simply position your metal sheet into the brake and lock in place. Place the separate TrimCutter® (included) onto the upper right side of the brake. Roll the TrimCutter® along its track shearing the metal to size. The TrimCutter® will cut painted steel sheet up to 24 gauge thick or .050 thick aluminum. A non-marring vinyl strip protects metal finishes, including clad, while leaving clean crisp bending lines and hems every time.

Each unit comes with a patented Xtreme™ shop stand that does not shake, rattle or loosen under any work load or job situation. With the longest service life of any portable brake of this class, you can depend on getting many years of reliable service.

CRL also has other Brakes and Shears available with different throat capacities, material thickness adjustments, and sizes which offer both shop and job site functions and features. For additional information contact CRL Glass and Glazing Technical Sales.
