An arch is a structure that spans an opening and supports weight. Arches have been around for thousands of years, and were originally constructed out of stone. During the Roman Empire the engineering of the masonry arch was perfected and its structural element defined.
Soft segmented arches, also known as eyebrow or flat arches, are our most popular archway style for two reasons. First, they look good! They offer a gentle curve that softens a transition from one room to another. Secondly, soft arches give you the flexibility to specify your rise, which allows them to work with almost any size opening and still look good.
