Fast finishing: Orac Decor skirting board is pre-primed ready for the chosen final coat of paint. Also Orac Decor skirting board has a smooth surface and does not absorb paint, so only the final coat is required. Wood skirting board does not come sanded, knotted, primed or with undercoat.
Strong & shock resistant: Orac Decor skirting board is tough, hard and difficult to break.
Developing cracks: Orac Decor 'Extra Fix' fuses the skirting board joints to produce ultra-strong joints which will not open with time. Wood skirting board joints move through drying and aging resulting in cracks in the skirting board joints.
Suitable in humid environments: Orac Decor skirting board is impervious to moisture. Wood skirting board can take in moisture and so is not suitable for humid and exterior environments. MdF skirting board is worse still as it will soak up moisture and expand.
'Flexi' skirting board for curved walls: Orac Decor 'Flexi' skirting board is a standard product, using the same moulds as the rigid range, but with a rubberised material. Orac Decor Rigid and Flexible skirting board can be used together providing an excellent solution to rooms with a curved bay. Curved wood skirting board projects requires an onsite expert for installation of the skirting board onto the curved walls.
Cabling: The void behind some of the skirting board designs can hide unsightly cabling. Check the rear void of the skirting board on the individual product pages.
Plastic skirting boards are ideally suited as bathroom skirting, kitchen skirting and utility room skirting. Any room with hard floors on which water is used to wash or is expected to be spilt, plastic skirting is the best option. MdF skirting and wood chip skirting are particularly unsuited to these environments as there is a tendency to soak up moisture and expand. Wood skirting will also be damaged by water over time. Plastic skirting however is completely impervious to moisture. Our hydro adhesive, FDP700, is formulated for our skirting boards and is even suitable for exterior use. The jointing compound, FX210, fuses the skirting board joints forming an incredibly strong joint, which is another reason to use plastic skirting. Therefore in any situation where the skirting board is expected to repeatedly come into contact with moisture our plastic skirting is ideal.
Our flexible skirting boards are a unique product. For the degree of maximum bend please see the pdf on the individual skirting board page. Designed for curved walls, externally or internally, this product is a perfect solution for any curved wall.
Our LED skirting board lighting system is superb for low level lighting. For example to use in halls, stairs and cinema rooms. The lights come in packs of five and one transformer will power up to twenty lights.
