Frames and screens Information
Whether an existing structure or new build, our joinery will produce frames and screen options to suit your needs. Older buildings tend to have deeper wall sections that vary from room-to-room, our Integral Split Lining has been designed to accommodate deeper wall sections without the drawbacks of using a plain lining, where proportions would render the frame unwieldy at installation along with associated costs of larger timber section. The Integral Split Lining has integrated architrave reducing the need for additional work at installation when fitting architrave is avoided and delivers a clean uninterrupted finish to the frame edge.
Solid Plain Linings can be installed with or without architrave. If installing with a shadow gap (no architrave) and you see the frame on all four sides we can accommodate this feature as well. Solid Planing Lining is the standard for use with screens. Screens can be configured in a multitude of ways to suit the needs with additions of fire protection, acoustic performance the final configurations can include glass with manifestation, solid panels with a wide range of finishes from polished veneers to laminates.
Once Rebated Linings are perfect when added security is desired. This lining can accommodate architrave or when required, without. The lining can be offered with an option of all four sides being visible and finished accommodating the design of shadow gaps.
Clean Form Lining was developed where high trolley traffic situations would destroy conventional architrave protruding from a frame lining. With Clear Form linings low profile PVC, radius corners and elongated tails overlapping walls the product delivers maximum protection whilst vastly improving the ease of cleaning and lowering dirt and dust catchment ledges.
Where finger trap protection is required we work in harmony with Safehinge. Our ALU30 frames produced by us perfectly complements the Safehinge product range.
Short runs requiring quick turnaround are addressed with our Engineered Plain Lining. We stock standard profiles that are configured to the partition dimensions required. The lining is shipped to you to the partition width and presents a configured frame lining with a loose pinned stop for site fit. the EPL performs very much in finished look and installation as a Solid Plain Lining would.

Integral Split Lining feature integrated architrave within the profile. The product has a front and back section allowing for wide partitions with stop widths variable to accommodate whilst minimising weight of what could be a substantial plain lining.
