Moisture Resistant HDF

High Density MDF

Moisture Resistant HDF - Perfect For Skirting & Architrave

HDF is stronger and harder than MDF. Compared to natural wood, High Density MDF doesn't swell at all making surface decoration much easier. HDF skirting boards are perfect in areas where moisture is present (bathrooms etc.) and where flooring that requires frequent mopping is installed.

Most MDF on the market contains part softwood fibres, hardwood fibres and various other wood chippings. This is not the case with our premium boards - they are 100% softwood fibres that enables us to create a fantastic finish on a much more durable board.

Why is your MDF called HDF?

The material we now use in place of our MDF is officially known as High Density MDF - hence the reason we refer to it as HDF. 

All of our MDF is now High Density MDF!

That's right - every single MDF product we sell is now made from High Density MDF! We have sourced the highest density MDF on the market.

Why is density so important?

When it comes to skirtings and architraves, the density of the material is important because:

  • the more fibres that are packed into the board, the better the finished product (less furriness as seen with standard MDF).
  • the denser the board, the more durable it is. Skirting and architraves tend to be bumped and knocked quite regularly - that's why we have the most dense boards available on the market.

Before 2018, only our 4200mm lengths were made using HDF. However, due to the superior finish achieved using HDF we have sourced the material for all of our current sizes!

You can buy skirtings and architraves in 15mm, 18mm or 25mm in and of our advertised lengths and you will receive moisture resistant HDF boards - you won't get these anywhere else!

Just below, you'll find a list of all the products that are made using our HDF material:
