For almost any wooden material available in the market today, there are always alternatives to it as a way to make installation easier without compromising the beauty intended for the room and quality.
Why choose UPVC skirting boards over the conventional wood-based variety? Let us count the ways:
The hollow profile helped solve concerns on how to get the cables behind it.
Unlike wood that you need to carve from behind to make some space for the cables, the UPVC skirting board’s hollow space inside makes it easy to slip in the cables that you are trying to connect to the outlet or DSL cables. It protects the wires from getting tangled too.
No need for cutting the board to mold the next board you’re attaching it to
Some UPVC skirting boards come with corner fillers that often eliminate the difficulty of cutting the board in a way that fits the next slab when assembling them in a corner. Some of the UPVC skirting boards are even cut out at the end of the slab shaped to fit the next slab. It makes assembling easier this way.
Air tightness guaranteed via rubber floor seal
Since most rooms where skirting boards are found are airconditioned, materials that help keep the room airtight helps a lot. With the rubber seal under the skirting boards curved inwards, in case some loose wind tried to get in, the rubber seal would block its way there.
Slots specially designed to keep the boards connected on corners
The hollow space inside the skirting boards allowed some pieces to serve as connections between 2 cut boards when trying to apply these to the doorposts. If there is an external filler as mentioned for the corners, there is also an internal version of these fillers that maximized the utility of the hollow space inside the UPVC version of skirting boards.
Gaps easily covered by caps
While wood fillers are applied to wooden skirting boards to cover the gaps between the slabs in these corners, caps can also be used for the boards that serve as doorposts. It’s usually optional since white adhesive can make up for it granted that the skirting boards are also white.
Designing your room with the help of skirting boards just got easier with an alternative found in UPVC versions available.
