High Density Moisture Resistant (MR) MDF
Our dado rail 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 dado rail 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 dado rails made using standard or premium MDF's.
For more information on our MDF please see our MDF information page.

- Additional Information
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 dado rails are the easiest and most flexible product to install with less risk of permanently damaging the finish.
We recommend a primed finish on dado rails and would urge anyone who is thinking otherwise to reconsider.
For more information on primed finishes and the limitations of other finishes visit our finishes page.
Our MDF dado rail is produced in house in our Midlands based factory and is machined to order from your chosen specification options above.
Please note: machined to order items are made specifically to order and therefore cannot be cancelled once in production, neither can they be returned to us.
