Key Points

  • Monarch installs resin coved skirting throughout the UK
  • Resin skirting is used to create a smooth edge so that drit, bacteria and dust is not trapped
  • Resin coved skirting is where resin is used to create a curved junction between wall and floor
  • The skirting can be a metal or plastic trim which is affixed to the wall prior to resin floor installment
  • Usuallt this skirting is between 4mm-10mm up the surface of the wall

What is resin coved skirting

In some instances, a resin coving or skirting will be created when a resin floor is installed. To complete a tanked resin system, a coved resin skirting can be formed to present a sealed wall/floor junction. Usually formed into a metal or plastic trim affixed to the wall. 

In most instances when a floor is installed there is a clean edge or ‘seam’ where the two meet. Having a junction between the wall and floor eliminates dirt, dust and bacteria getting trapped in that seam where the wall and floor meet. This makes the floor more hygienic and easier to clean in both wet and dry conditions. Falls in the floor and stainless steel drainage is also added in areas which deal with a lot of water or other liquids creating a system where the liquids are directed into drainage rather than stainding still on the floor.   

Monarcove

Monarcove is a heavy duty Polyurethane resin wall render and skirting for durable wall/floor junction, or all vertical applications.

This three-part polyurethane is a trowel applied cove and wall render. It is generally applied in conjunction with Monarthane polyurethane resin floor screed to provide a tanked resin floor and coving resin system.

Monarcove presents a uniform, monotone dense sealed surface, where high resistance to hot water and an easily cleanable wall/floor junction is required.

Application

Apply suitable trim to wall surface at the required height. Prime substrate with Monarprime T C and allow to cure for 20-30 minutes, depending on the temperature at application. Apply Monarcove with coving trowel and work until smooth.

Mixing

Monarcove three-part mix to be mixed in rotary drum mixer until homogenous mix obtained. Mix remains workable for up to 15 minutes from mixing.

For a smoother, stronger colour apply a coat of Monarcoat T F polyurethane resin coating.

Cure time

Heavy Traffic 24 hours Full chemical cure 3 days (cure times will be extended @ temperatures less than 20°C

Compressive strength 50N/mmˉ²

Final Thoughts

To conclude, when working in settings where hygiene is a factor, it may be an idea to have a resin coved skirting installed. This prevents a build up of dirt, bacteria and other small bits which lay on the edge of a floor. Instead, the coving stops corners and edges trapping the dirt so the floor is easier to clean and sanitise correctly.
