UPVC

In the past skirting boards were always considered as pieces of wood fastened just above your floors.

Not anymore!

Our stylish compartmental and multifunctional skirting boards are made ​​of uPVC and provide an additional decoration in the room, they are available in different colors and texture as well as possessing useful features.

 

 

 

The Manufacturing Process

 

The basic raw material for the production of uPVC strips is unplasticised Polyvinyl Chloride with the addition of appropriate colours and conditioners.

The PVC ingredients are carefully weighed prior to manufacture as it is crucial that the correct proportions are maintained for a perfect product.

The Extruder is the machine on which the uPVC profiles are formed. 

Step 1: Powder is delivered via a hopper to the extruder. Here it is heated, plasticised, mixed and compressed.

 Step 2: The mixed raw material is fed to the machine head where the uPVC is given a preliminary shape which in turn is fed through the Calibrating machine. This adjusts their shape and from here the uPVC profiles exit and go to cooling baths where they gradually cool down and become hardened.

 Step 3: In this stage small holes are punched along the profile, this makes it easier for the strips final assembly.

 Step 4: On the underside the product code is printed.

 Step 5: The profile is cut to lengths of 2.5m and the finished strips are pushed automatically into a stack.

 

Quality Control

Several times a day the shape of the profile is rigourously compared against a computerised plan.

 

Colour and Pattern

During this stage the uPVC profiles are painted . The machine consists of two sections of silicone cylinders which apply the paint. Each cylinder corresponds to a different type of wood, one reflects the colour and the other the grain. On some strips there are 2 colours applied. Each strip is finished with a clear lacquer.

The uPVC then passes through UV lamps which dries the paint and lacquer.

 

Colour Quality Control

It is important that the colour and pattern on each strip is a perfect match. Computerised colour testing is conducted regularly to ensure continuity

 

Corner Pieces

The corners are formed with special materials fed to the injection molding machines where the process produces malleable corner pieces with properties of plasticity.

 

Installation

As these uPVC products are engineered to a high standard this makes installations extremely quick and easy in any room with superb functionality and aesthetic qualities.
