It is characterised by its rounded profile, which resembles the shape of a torus or a doughnut, with a convex outer edge and a concave inner edge. Our primed MDF torus skirting board products are not only moisture resistant but their precision-engineered uniformity ensures they do not feature any of the natural defects that are commonly found in natural wood products.

Can Torus Skirting Boards Be Used in Damp or Humid Areas, Such as Bathrooms?

While torus skirting boards can be used in various areas of the home, they may not be suitable for damp or humid environments, such as bathrooms, where moisture can cause wood to warp or MDF to swell. 

In such cases, it may be advisable to use moisture-resistant materials or consider alternative skirting board options.

What Skirting Boards Make A Room Look Bigger?

Using white trims and skirting boards can create an illusion of greater depth, making the room appear bigger.

What Are The Benefits of Water-Based Primer? 

Water-based primer is applied in a vacuum coater to achieve a consistency that cannot be replicated with old-fashioned methods such as hand spraying. 

Water-based primer is utilised to prepare a surface for a final coat of paint. This primer aids the finishing coat of paint to adhere better and results in a more even and spotless finish.

What Is The Difference Between Ogee & Torus Skirting Board?

  • Profile shape: Ogee skirting board has an S-shaped profile with a concave curve at the top and a convex curve at the bottom. In contrast, torus skirting board has a rounded profile with a semi-circular curve at the top and a smaller convex curve at the bottom of the board.
  • Decorative detailing: Ogee skirting board tends to have more intricate and elaborate detailing, while torus skirting board is simpler and more understated.
  • Style: Ogee skirting board is often associated with traditional or classic interior design styles due to its ornate and decorative profile. Torus skirting board, on the other hand, is more versatile and can be used in a wider range of interior design styles, including contemporary and minimalist.
