As well as providing a beautiful and extensive range of panels and boards, we also sell the essential accessories to complete the installation and ensure a professional finish. Along with our range of sealant and adhesives, we also supply a range of trims to dress those junctions where the new panelling interacts with existing areas of the room. We believe that only 6 different types of finishing trim are required for all eventualities, but to compliment the design and colour that you have chosen for your rooms, we supply them in a choice of three colours, chrome, black and white, and each of these colours are available to cater for the three different thickness panels we supply, 5mm, 8mm and 10mm.
Finishing Trim Usage
Coving – This trim was designed to create a traditional, soft rounded shape where the panels touch the ceiling. The ends of the panels slip into a rebate at the rear of the trim which is positioned along the junction of the ceiling and the wall to form a clean uniform line.
End Cap – Where a run of panelling ends at any other place than a corner of a room, such as in the panelling for a shower enclosure, or when the boards are used to create that half-panelled look, an end cap can be fitted to give the edges a perfectly straight finish. It works perfectly to disguise the tongue and grooved end of a complete board, or to cover a run of part boards that has been cut to manufacture an edge. Many customers also use this trim as an alternative to coving to give a modern, less intrusive finish where walls meet ceilings.
Joining Trim – Although panels are made to fit together seamlessly with their tongue and groove construction, joining trims give an alternative. Made to hold two same thickness boards that would butt up to each other, a contrasting line can be created between each panel for effect. More commonly, they are used to bridge the junction where two different design of panels meet each other at a point where one or both design of panel is cut along its length. This gives a smart discreet transition. It can also be used to cover any junction where one of our products meets another product of the same thickness
Internal Corner – When installing panels that run all the way to the corner and then turn through a right angle and continue to the next wall, internal corner trims are used to provide a smooth transition. Channels at the rear of the corner trim allow the panels to fit snugly within it as it provides a bridge between the ends of the wall.
External Corner – Where an exposed corner of a wall needs to be addressed while fitting our panels, external corner trims provide a simple answer. As with other trims, channels at the rear accommodate the edges of the board from each wall delivering a solid, neat turn.
Rigid Angle Trim – Often used as an alternative to the external corner trim, the rigid angle is an unchanneled right angle trim designed to be adhered to an already panelled wall to retrospectively cover the exposed ends of the boards. It is sometimes preferred by the DIYer, especially within those complicated areas of multiple exposed corners such as alcoves and window reveals.
