Waterproof skirting and trims

by Tania Wannenburg

Waterproof, highly chemical-and scuff-resistant skirtings and trims that cannot delaminate are available to the South African market.

Enviroline skirting and trims are extruded from high density polystyrene and are finished with a hardwearing, machine-printed décor layer. This results in a finished product that is waterproof, highly chemical- and scuff-resistant, and cannot delaminate. Enviroline products are therefore ideal for coastal areas with high moisture and humidity levels.

Waste polystyrene is collected by Supreme Mouldings on a yearly basis. The amount collected equals the equivalent of four Ellis park rugby stadiums, which would have ended up in landfill somewhere within South Africa’s beautiful environment. As Enviroline products are manufactured from recycled material and are recyclable, the vast range is one of the greenest in South Africa.

In addition to the above benefits, Enviroline requires minimal labour – just mitre and fix to the wall with glue, no nailing or filling is required. It is factory finished and ready to install, requiring no painting or staining. As a result, there is no danger of paint or stain damage to tiles, carpets, laminates or other floor surfaces.

Colour consistency from batch to batch is guaranteed. It is perfect for projects that are carried out in various phases over a period of time. Enviroline is highly flexible and can be applied to curved surfaces. This creates the opportunity for unlimited design options as special finishes and profiles can be run subject to minimum order quantity. Enviroline will not warp or split and is also termite- and insect-proof.

Supreme Mouldings’ products are ‘Made by South Africans for South Africans’, thus creating jobs and supporting the economy. Their distribution centres are based in Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban, and offer a 24-hour turnaround time on local deliveries. The company’s manufacturing plant is based in East London while Johannesburg is home to its head office. Furthermore, their products are always in stock and readily available

Dale Gurney, the operations director of Floors Direct, states that Supreme Mouldings offer excellent quality, great service and reliable and consistent supply. “They offer a wide range and are readily available for one’s décor needs. Their service levels are great,” concludes Benjamin O’Neil from iFloors.

Interesting Facts:
Polystyrene is made from petroleum (Styrofoam) and isn’t biodegradable. It is difficult to dispose of, which is evident in the abundance of it found in litter, especially the countries’ oceans and rivers. It is hazardous to wildlife and marine life as animals do not recognise this artificial material and often mistake it for food. It can be lethal to any bird or sea creature. Each year Americans alone throw away 2-billion Styrofoam cups. 500 years from now, the foam coffee cup you used this morning will still be sitting in a landfill!!
