What is Architrave Used For?
Architraves are inspired by classical architecture and were used in the past to give the effect of columns and lintels around a doorway. In more modern times they are a decorative feature, similar to skirting board, that also functions to hide the joins and any unevenness once a building settles after construction has finished.
Extensive Range Of MDF Architrave Mouldings
Unlike larger retailers, we have a wide choice of architrave profiles. From trade standards such as Torus and Ogee to our own unique mouldings to suit many interior design plans, giving you plenty of options to find the perfect look for your home.
All of our MDF architraves are designed to perfectly match their skirting board counterparts, and are available in numerous widths between 50mm and 120mm, with a pre-primed option to provide the classic white architrave colour.
While fitting a different architrave to your doorway can be done, most customers opt for matching skirting and architrave, which provides a consistent design throughout an interior.
Architraves Available In Lengths Or Door Sets
All of our architraves are available to buy in lengths of 2.4m, 3m and 4.2m.
Alternatively, they can be supplied in door sets suited to single door widths, or double door widths. These consist of two upright 'legs' at 2.4m for the sides of the doorway, and a horizontal 'head' for the top of the doorway which is 1.2m on a single door and 2.4m on a double door set.
Door sets are square cut, not mitre cut.
A single door set refers to the width of a single door and a double door set refers to the width of two doors side by side, like french doors. If you want to install the architrave on both sides of a doorway, you will need 2 door sets.
