What is the length option for?
This option is used to select how long the piece should be. If you are looking at architrave, there will be a single and double set option available.
How do I know which length to choose?
If you're purchasing skirting boards, the longer lengths are normally the most ideal - especially if you have long walls as you will have less joins (if any). However, if you live in a smaller home with short walls throughout, the shorter lengths may be more beneficial (they are also easier to store and handle).
If you're purchasing architrave, you'll also have the option of choosing single sets and double sets. A single set will cover one side of a single door frame (2 legs at 2440mm and 1 head at 1220mm) and a double set will cover one side of a double door frame (2 legs at 2440mm and 1 head at 2440mm).
If you're purchasing window boards, you will need to measure how wide the area is where it will be installed (from the left hand side of the window to the right hand side - or vice versa).
I require a different length but I can't see the option. Is this possible?
Our longest length available in MDF (now all premium moisture resistant HDF) is 4200mm. Unfortunately, we cannot get anything longer in this material. However, we can get longer lengths in our Pine material but this is subject to stock at the time of ordering.
For skirting boards, we have 3050mm lengths and 4200mm lengths as standard. If you require shorter pieces, we are able to run skirting on 2440mm lengths to but you will need to call us or drop us an email and we'll quote you for these lengths. Should you need a length between 3050mm and 4200mm, for example a 3500mm length, we can do this but it would be charged at the size above (4200mm in this case).
For architraves, the standard lengths are 2440mm, 3050mm and 4200mm. The same rule applies to the architraves as above in regards to different lengths.
For window boards, we already have more sizes to choose from:
We have found that these are the most common sizes throughout the UK so we offer them to enhance the efficiency of ordering on the website. However, should you need a more specific size between any of these (or even shorter) just get in touch. We can do anything below 4200mm, no matter how small.
