These architrave styles have been manufactured to supply the UK building industry for decades. As such thousands of buildings across the UK are likely to have been installed with one of these shapes, making them some of our most popular profiles, and becoming known as traditional profiles within the construction industry.
Although recognised and available widely, these designs have been produced by numerous manufacturers, each with different variations and differences in their design. This means if your trying to match an existing architrave, it is well worth ordering a sample to check the design will match.
The most popular of these designs are Torus architrave, Ogee architrave, Bullnose architrave and Chamfer architrave, of which we offer several variations. Lambs Tongue and Ovolo architrave are also used frequently and are included in this category.
These architraves tend to be ordered in a 69mm/3" width, but can look equally effective in other sizes.
