About Our Timber Architraves
An Architrave is a type of interior moulding that sits around the frame of a doorway or window. Typically available in a range of materials, architraves can add a decorative touch to the interior of your home, which can be finished with either paint, stain or varnish.
Architraves are primarily used as the decorative moulding that surrounds the door frame. The door frame is the structure that holds the opening in the wall together and also where the door will be hung, these are available as pre-cut door sets.
We have the largest range of real wood architraves in the South East, all available to collect or have delivered. The range of premium quality door architrave comes in a wide variety of designs including chamfered, ovolo, rounded, torus and ogee, and is available in the following timbers:
- Premier Redwood Pine, sourced and machined by ourselves. Carefully selected joinery grade highest quality Redwood which is more dense and stable, ensuring crisp cuts for clean and sharp moulding profiles, and helps reduce splitting when fixing at the ends. It is machined to a super smooth finish, ready to paint or stain and the low knot content makes for easier on-site preparation and hence saves you time.
- Oak Hardwood uses the best commercial grade available, so almost entirely free of knots and defects so the timber can be polished or stained to a high-quality finish.
- Meranti/Seraya is suitable for both internal and external applications, is stable and versatile hardwood and is perfect for achieving a similar finish to real mahogany, at a fraction of the cost.
- Our MDF Architraves are manufactured using Moisture resistant MDF, double-primed for an improved finish, and saving time on site.
We offer a free cross-cutting service so we can cut to length any timber you require, to reduce wastage for all except MDF which is sold either in 2.1m or 4.2m lengths, but of course, we can crosscut that for you too!
