A skirting board is a strip that covers the gap between the wall and the floor..
Installation of the skirting board is carried out after the completion of the installation of the floor covering. You can replace the skirting board at any time without replacing the existing flooring.
Depending on the type of flooring used and the general style solution of the room, choose the material for making the plinth.
The main materials for the manufacture of skirting boards are:
During cleaning, the plinth is wiped with a damp cloth. Stubborn dirt is removed with detergents that do not contain abrasives and solvents.
When caring for wooden skirting boards, avoid excessive moisture, as well as the ingress of abrasive substances and solvents. Dust is wiped with a dry or slightly damp cloth or removed with a vacuum cleaner.
The plastic skirting board is installed in a hidden way, using the fixing channels laid from the back. The wall to which it is attached must be flat.
Wooden skirting boards (keyed and solid) are most often simply glued to a flat, clean and dry wall.
The MDF skirting boards are attached to a flat wall with hook-shaped staples, onto which the skirting board is tightly fitted. The end cuts of the skirting board are closed with plastic plugs, and the corner joints are closed with “corners”. Thanks to this fastening, during subsequent repairs, the skirting boards can be removed and then put back in place..

Junction boxes are made of PVC and aluminum, differ in a large number of standard sizes and sections, which allows you to lay cables for various purposes and cross-sections in separate channels, thereby increasing the safety of electrical wiring.
The shape of the boxes is also different. They can be rectangular and angular for installation in wall corners, under the ceiling or under wall cabinets.
