Select from our many styles of polyurethane skirting boards. Waterproof and tough, skirting boards that combine durability and design with ease of
fitting and painting. Designed for professional and DIY skirting board customers. We are sure that you will find a skirting board to suit from our
designs. Many of House Martin skirting boards feature rear cavities, which can hide unsightly wires (such as hi-fi cabling or home cinema cabling)
and the fitting of low level lighting.

House Martin skirting boards will not warp, crack or rot like conventional wood skirting board or MDF skirting board, and has a more traditional feel than PVCu skirting or cheaper plastic skirting.

Fast finishing: Orac Decor skirting board is supplied with a primer coat of paint ready for the chosen final coat. Orac Decor board has a smooth surface and which does not absorb paint, so only the final top coat is required.
Strong & shock resistant: Orac Decor skirting board is tough, hard and difficult to break.
No cracks: Orac Decor 'Extra Fix' fuses the skirting board joints to produce strong joints which will not open with time. Wood skirting board joints move with ageing resulting in cracks in the fitted skirting board joints.
Suitable in humid environments: Orac Decor skirting board is impervious to moisture. Wooden skirting board is not suitable for humid and exterior environments. MdF skirting board will soak up moisture and expand.
'Flexi'skirting board for curved walls: Orac Decor 'Flexi' skirting board is a standard product. Orac Decor Rigid and Flexible skirting board can be used together providing an excellent solution to rooms with curved walls and bays. To install curved wood skirting board requires an onsite expert for installation.
Cabling: The void behind many of the skirting board designs can hide unsightly cabling. Check the rear void of the skirting board on the product pages.
Plastic skirting boards are ideally suited as bathroom skirting, kitchen skirting and utility room skirting. For any room with hard floors on which water is used to wash plastic skirting is the best option. MdF skirting and wood chip skirting are particularly unsuited to these floors as they soak up moisture and expand. Wooden skirting will also be damaged by water. Plastic skirting however is completely impervious to moisture. Our hydro adhesive, FDP700, is formulated for our skirting boards and is even suitable for exterior use. The jointing compound, FX210, fuses the skirting board joints forming a strong joint, which is yet another reason to use plastic skirting. Where the skirting board is expected to come into contact with moisture our plastic skirting is ideal.
Our flexible skirting boards are a unique product. For the maximum bend please see the pdf on the product skirting board page. Designed for curved walls this product is a perfect solution for any curved wall.
