Half-pipe plate variations, laid in the traditional overlapping convex, concave, convex, concave manner; each mechanically free of its neighbours, attached and touching at only at one point - to an underlying stringer, that attached to the soundboard roof underlay.

Quite a few man hours goes into the arrangement of the variety of shapes, sizes, materials and attachment points, to lend a pleasing visual, as well as aural pastiche, while retaining its raison d'etre, ie: keeping the rain off.

Most effective during hailstorms.
