Ideal for renovation projects: a perfectly waterproof and paintable skirting board that will simply fit over existing boards (max.1,4 x 8,8cm) that are either old or difficult to remove (or alternatively for hiding electrical cables out of sight). Winner of the Smart Design Award at Intirio 2016!

Using Correct Adhesives – IMPORTANT!
It is essential to use DECOFIX EXTRA – either FX200 (300ml cartridge) or FX210 (80ml tube) – when joining two sections together (either corners or on a straight run). This is a high strength bonding glue that is purpose-designed for the material and guarantees there won’t be any open cracks appearing in future years.
To fit the skirting board, we recommend our MS-Polymer adhesive – FDP700 – especially if the wall has been plastered/skimmed within the last 3 months, or the ambient temperature is less than 10 Celcius. Otherwise, the water-based adhesive FDP500 should suffice.

Damages: Although it is extremely rare for damage to occur during transit, please remember that a consignment must not be signed for if there is evidence of any significant damage. Check the contents of your package and report any damage to us within 48 hours so we can arrange for replacements to be sent. An emailed photograph of the damage must be provided before we re-send.
