2017-11-27 | Waterproof skirtings - also available for design floor coverings
With the increase in LVT floors and vinyl floor coverings on the market the issue of protecting the skirtings from moisture is becoming increasingly important.
For this reason FN Neuhofer Holz has developed skirtings for applications, which require particular resistance to moisture; these skirtings combine the benefits of waterproof plastic carriers with the advantage of matching the finish of the decor.
Waterproof PUR adhesive is used to stick down decor papers, printed digitally or by the intaglio printing process. This results in a universal product, which is ideal for every purpose.
- Waterproof carriers - the ideal combination for vinyl and LVT floors.
- Waterproof adhesion due to the use of PUR adhesives.
- Robust design - can be laid using Clipholder CH23, but screws or nail can also be used.
- Cables can be laid behind it.
- Film with a matching finish can be used as a surface, matched colour 1:1 to the range of vinyl floorings.
- Can be digitally printed.
- Matching plastic corners are available.
In July 2017 FN Neuhofer Holz invested in a new, state-of-the-art digital printing machine, which offers an impressive range of innovative functions.
The new machine can print up to 330 mm widths and has an outstanding print resolution of up to 1260 dpi (high definition print). For the first time both stone decors and plain coloured decors can be printed according to pantone colours.
A wide range of different materials, such as paper, PP film, PE film, PVC film, PET film, BOPP film, aluminium film and real wood veneers can be printed. The customer has a choice of matt or high gloss for the final varnishing. The results speak for themselves. In the same print process decor paper can be manufactured for the most widely different purposes across a variety of surface coatings, such as skirtings, floor profiles, door frame profiles. And all of this matches the floor decor perfectly.
FN white&pure - white foam skirtings
White skirting boards are an on-going trend. The FN white&pure skirtings are absolutely right for this trend and their foam polystyrene core also makes them waterproof into the bargain and therefore they are ideal for damp areas. The skirtings is enclosed in a smooth, resilient, white outer shell and can be stuck down or nailed down.
Sealing lips for skirtings
When LVT floors and vinyl floor coverings consist purely of plastic, they are easy to clean with a wet mop and on one hand the skirtings, which is made from a wood material must be able to withstand this and on the other hand, however, water must be prevented from penetrating into the expansion joints and under the skirtings.
There are two possibilities, one of which is to add a transparent, adhesive sealing lip, which is used specifically on MDF skirtings.
The other possibility is the new K0210L plastic skirting board, which is fitted with two sealing lips, one for sealing the floor and the other for sealing the wall. This seals the connection joint to the floor and the sealing lip at the wall makes it possible to even up irregularities in the stonework. Furthermore, the skirting can be printed in the widest variety of different designs and thus will match the floor perfectly.
Another top product in the waterproof skirting range is FN pro-flex. This skirting consists of a light, very bendable plastic foam, which follows every curve seamlessly and can even be fitted around a 90° inner or outer angle. The skirting can easily be stuck down and painted in the desired colour.
As well as waterproof skirtings in many different designs, FN Neuhofer Holz offers a wide range of accessories for floors, walls and ceilings.
