MDF Skirtings and Mouldings: Our Comprehensive Collection
The extensive and ever-growing product portfolio here at JAS Timber contains a comprehensive collection of mouldings, skirtings, window-boards and architraves made from moisture-resistant MDF. Available in a choice of lengths, these products are, like everything else we supply, guaranteed to be of absolutely superlative quality and brought to you at our signature low prices.
'MDF' stands for 'medium-density fibreboard', which is a versatile and useful material that has been manufactured across the world on a large scale since the 1980s. The process of making the engineered wood product begins by breaking down timber residuals in a machine called a 'defibration. These fibres are then combined with wax and a resin binder before being formed into panels with the application of high pressure and temperature.
MDF is often confused with plywood or particleboard but the fact is that MDF is much denser and stronger than either of these inferior materials. It also offers several advantages in comparison to solid timber:
- MDF mouldings do not warp or twist
- They are free from defects, resulting in big savings in terms of cost, wastage and labour time
- Strength is consistent across all pieces
- The dimensions are stable, meaning that there is much less contraction and expansion in comparison to natural timber
- MDF can be easily and successfully painted, stained or varnished as required
MDF mouldings from JAS Timber have been given two coatings of tough, durable acrylic primer. They are also made from materials that have been responsibly sourced and are certified by the FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) or PEFC (Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification).
One of our most popular MDF mouldings is the Torus Profile Architrave Set from the top brand Richard Burbidge. Manufactured from high-quality MDF with a veneer of real oak, the five lengths of material supplied are sufficient to cut to most doors of standard size. The beautiful mouldings will give any door an attractive finished look, bringing the luxurious elegance of oak to your home at a fraction of the cost.
