Torus Small MDF Architrave

Torus Small MDF Architrave

Torus Small is the most popular profile found in UK households. It is regularly used by the trade due to its simple design.

Featuring a smaller torus than the Torus 1, the profile means you can have a shorter board with striking, yet minimal, detailing.

The simplicity of the design does not detract from its effect which is one of the reasons many people choose this style.

Available Sizes

Our Architrave is available in 15mm, 18mm or 25mm thickness, lengths of either 2440mm, 3050mm or 4200mm (depending on chosen thickness) and heights of between 50mm, 69mm or 96mm, depending on length.

We also have complete one-sided door sets for single or double door widths which are designed to fit most standard size doorways

All sizes made to order and with a un-primed or primed finish

  • Material

    High Density Moisture Resistant (MR) MDF

    Our Torus Small 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 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 architraves.

    For more information on our MDF please see our MDF information page.

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 architraves 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.

Architrave Door Sets

An Architrave Door set saves you time when ordering and provides you with everything you need to surround one side of a doorway and should be more than enough for all but the most unique sized doors.

They come in single or double door sets with the single consisting of 2 x 2400mm lengths for each vertical side of a door and 1 x 1200mm length for the horizontal piece above the door.

The double door set has 3 x 2400mm lengths, one for each vertical and one for the extended horizontal.

When ordering, just choose the height and thickness and select your door set instead of the length.
