Details

Maple Architrave

Maple is eminent for its even tones of light tan or a light red-brown. Fewer knots are present giving this hardwood style. It is medium strength but good for steam-bending. Working with Maple isn’t always easy as it has a tolerable blunting effect; pre-drilling for nails and screws is recommended to keep its quality. This piece of wood can be finished with oil, lacquer, staining, or varnish. Perfect for internal doors, skirtings, architraves, mouldings and specialist joinery. For internal use only.

DIMENSIONS MANUAL

Ordering architraves can be quite baffling when you have to try to envisage what it will look like from a web page! We have put together this ‘manual’ to help you get to grips with the measurements you require and how to order accurately.

Explanation

All architraves have 3 dimensions that you will need to specify: height, depth and length. You will also need to choose a profile, which is the part of the board that is shaped for decorative purposes.

Dimensions

Height: this is how wide you want the architrave

Depth: this is how thick the architrave is coming away from your wall/door frame

Length: this will depend on the height and width of your door frame

Profile: a style that is chosen for your desired appearance

Please note that we can send samples out for you to look at before placing an order. If you need to match architraves to previous ones, please give us a call!

BOARDLAND FINISHES

Here at Boardland, giving you the perfect finished product is our main goal. We offer a variety of finishes for softwood and hardwood. Please speak to us if you want advice or a further explanation!

UNPRIMED (NO FINISH)

If you choose your product to come unprimed, it will come to you as the raw product ready for you to finish as you require.

OIL

If you choose your product to have an oil finish, it will come richer in colour with a brighter finish. Oil isn’t the most durable so wouldn’t want to be used in busy areas or on a table/work surface, which requires more cleaning. The process consists of:

  1. The product is enriched with oil by hand, and then left to seep in.
  2. It is then lightly sanded to fill in any pores with the oil and wood dust to create a smoother finish.
  3. Quality checked by our QA manager.

 

CLEAR LACQUER

If you choose your product to have a clear lacquer finish, it will come with a hard coating with a 30% sheen. This surface is very durable, perfect for lots of use. The process consists of:

  1. The product is sanded ready for polishing.
  2. It is wiped down and 2 coats of lacquer is applied.
  3. Then, it is lightly sanded, which breaks down the grain for a smooth finish.
  4. A further coat of lacquer is applied to seal and create the hard top.
  5. Quality checked by our QA manager.
