The floors, walls, and ceiling are the largest elements of any room in terms of square footage. As a result, they must not be neglected. They are aspects of a room that shape its style, even if often perceived only subconsciously. Almost as important as the design of the three essential room components themselves is planning the transitions between them. Skirting boards a practical transition between floors and walls. mafi produces tailor-made skirting boards that come in a wide variety of profiles and always match the respective floor.
Anyone who opts for a skirting board as a transition between floor and wall will quickly enjoy the many advantages of this relatively small room element. First of all, the boards create a distance between the floor and the wall, protecting the walls from coming into contact with moisture or pigmented floor care products. In addition, the wall is also protected from possible traces left by vacuuming.
Skirting boards also cover the expansion joint that is set between the floor and the wall when the boards are laid. At mafi, most of our skirting boards are also equipped with a milled cable duct, which allows television and other cables to be laid discreetly and avoiding the rather unsightly tangle of exposed cables. Last but not least, skirting boards are a stylistic device: they frame the floor like a decorative picture frame, making it look larger.
Always in the design of the respective natural wood floor, mafi offers six profiles of skirting boards with different shapes and dimensions. From round to square, high to low, everything is included.
Hardwood skirting boards are offered in length of 2400 mm, while softwood variants are 2500 mm.
Just like our real wood planks, mafi's skirting boards are made from selective and pre-sorted solid wood and are only finished with natural oils. Thanks to the in-house production of the boards in Steindorf, Austria, custom-made products and special requests are never a problem.
Simple and clear, Profile A is a modern skirting board with a 90° edge and an integrated cable duct hidden in back. At the same time, this milling can compensate for any unevenness in the plaster. They come either as 40 or 58 mm high boards. The depth is 18 mm.
Modern and practical, Profile B has a beveled edge, which makes it harder for dust to settle while creating a visually equalizing effect. The milled recess on the back serves to compensate for unevenness in the plaster while discreetly hiding cables. They come either as 40 or 58 mm high boards.
Restrained and harmonious, Profile C has a rounded edge and is more inconspicuous. With short heights of either 25 or 35 mm, simplicity is guaranteed.
Versatile and clear, Profile D is a thin board with clean lines. This skirting board can be mounted on the wall either horizontally or vertically. The thickness is only 9 mm with a depth of 35 mm.
Traditional and solid, Profile E impresses with its rounded edge that evokes hominess. Equipped with a cable duct that compensates for any unevenness in the plaster and relief cuts on the back to improve dimensional stability, Profile E is a popular choice for traditional room concepts. The height is fixed at 58 mm.
An innovative variant is the wall-flush skirting board from mafi. In this case, the skirting board is provided with the help of a profile while the wall is being plastered. Then the board is glued to the previously created profile, so that it does jut out into the room, but is instead flush with the wall. In this way, systems flush with the wall create a harmonious transition between floor and wall, creating a simple, modern appearance that is currently in high demand.
As an alternative to skirting boards, mafi offers wall jointing. The real wood planks are cut to the wall in the most precise precision work and the unavoidable joint is grouted with a suitable color and thus sealed. The respective color is adapted to that of the floor in order to obtain a harmonious overall look.
Similar to the Profile F skirting boards flush with the wall, the wall jointing also creates a very simple look that does not add any further emphasis to the transition between floor and wall. However, the wall is not protected against any soiling. This joint will require maintenance.
Although the natural wood floors from mafi are very resistant to distortion due to their material-symmetrical three-layer structure, regular maintenance and possibly renewal of the joint will be absolutely necessary.
