RESIN COVED SKIRTING
Resin coved skirting is a junction between a wall and a resin floor. It creates a curve within the floor that leads up the wall to a certain height so that there are no edges. This form of coved skirting is used in wet areas as a form of waterproofing, in food factories to prevent bacteria from getting trapped between wall and floor and also as a hygienic flooring solution in many settings.
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 can also be 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 standing still on the floor.
Where is coved skirting used
specialist product - 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.

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.
