High Density Moisture Resistant (MR) MDF

Our Albany  architrave is made of a high density, moisture resistant (MR) MDF.

MDF is free from natural defects. This gives it a long product life and means that MDF will not; warp, twist, bow, split, or contain knots, all of which you would find in pine and any other natural wood. This makes MDF the most economical, time saving material for your architrave requirements.

Skirtings R Us MDF builds on these properties. We manufacturer on a high density MDF board which we have specifically sourced, as it produces a far smoother cut surface when moulded, superior to other standard or premium MDF architraves.

For more information, see the additional information tab (above) or our finishes guide to find out which finish is best for you.

The Benefits of Primed Finishes

Primed finishes are the most popular supplied to the DIY, building and design industries for several reasons:

  • Pre-primed mouldings relieves a lot of work as MDF, being an absorbent material, can require two or more priming coats to seal it properly.
  • If primed, mistakes and marks commonly made during installation can be rectified when finishing (unlike a gloss or satin finish, which is almost impossible to ‘touch up’ well and would be wasted).
  • Therefore primed skirting boards/architrave is the easiest and most flexible product to install with less risk of permanently damaging the finish.

We recommend a primed finish on skirting board and would urge anyone who is thinking otherwise to reconsider.
