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 standing still on the floor.

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.
