Torus, the most popular skirting board on the market offers a simple, classic look to your interiors that doesn't detract from the rest of your design.
This Torus skirting board offers a variation on the basic architectural shape with a larger, more prominent Torus creating a soft, deep shadow profile.
The ubiquity of the design means each provider offers a subtly different take with their own variant. Torus 1 is machined with a 45 degree flat under the round feature to catch the light and sharpen the shadow.
The simplicity of this profile makes it a safe choice if your skirting board needs updating or replacing.
You can also purchase the matching architrave below.
Our skirting is available in 18mm or 25mm thickness, lengths of either 3050mm or 4200mm and heights of between 69mm or 296mm, depending on length.
All sizes made to order and with a un-primed or primed finish.
High Density Moisture Resistant (MR) MDF
Our Torus 1 skirting board 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 skirting board requirements.
Skirtings R Us MDF builds on these properties. We manufacture 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's.
For more information on our MDF please see our MDF information page.

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.
For more information on primed finishes and the limitations of other finishes visit our finishes page.
Our Torus 1 MDF skirting board is produced in house in our Midlands based factory and is machined to order from the 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.
