Woodline Scotia & Skirting accessories provide aesthetic pleasure and unrivalled durability whilst covering perimeter expansion gaps. The range includes sizes and shapes to suit all preferences.
Frontier Woodline Scotia and Skirting is a range designed to complement the huge range of solid hardwood profiles that make up a large proportion of the Parallel range. Primarily used for finishing the perimeter of rooms to hide unsightly gaps left for expansion, both the skirting and scotia mouldings disappear seamlessly into the floor. Whether you are looking for a statement 8” skirting for an Edwardian town house or a small scotia to provide a modern clean line in an apartment, we have a solution. And if we don’t, we’ll make it for you!
The hardwood sections are available in a variety of natural wood finishes, stains and lacquers.
Uses & Application
With a multitude of profile shapes and finishes, the Frontier Woodline Scotia & Skirting range is all encompassing.
What can profiles do for your floor?
Enhance the whole look and feel of your floor. Profiles are often the last thought on the mind of the person who sells or lays the floor but without due care and consideration for what is needed, the floor can look poorly finished. Even without the importance of the aesthetic aspect, profiles play an important roll in the fitting and longevity of the floor, in-particular, solid and engineered wood floors. Profiles provide cover for necessary expansion gaps both around the perimeter of rooms and across door thresholds. Without the necessary expansion, hardwood flooring will bow, dish or push bricks out of walls.
With the correctly specified profiles, perimeter expansion and door threshold covers vanish to become part of the floor.
Floor PreperationFor a flawless finish, preparation is the key. Luckily with Parallel profiles, preparation is kept to the bare minimum. Simply ensure that the substrate floor is clean and relatively level.
Not quite what you need?Haven’t found quite what you are looking for? No problem, just give us a call. Parallel are able to machine bespoke profiles to whatever specification you require.
FixingParallel’s unique fixing system makes installation a breeze. Simply fix the base section to the substrate floor with either an adhesive or screws and then tap the top profile into place with a rubber mallet. The profile will self level in the height adjustable base system giving the perfect finish.
Complementary ExtrasIn addition to profiles to cover gaps between different flooring types or through doorways, Parallel also manufactures skirting, architrave, scotia, quadrant, stairnosing, pipe covers/collars and more from the same high quality hardwoods. This enables continuity throughout the room or building.
Leading the way with an uncompromising attitude to product design and customer service, what is run of the mill to us is impossible to others.
Reversible Skirting Designs
One of the issues we see regularly with skirting is the number of different designs, shapes and sizes available. Many customers have an idea of the shape they would like and often this tends to be the one design that is not in stock! At Parallel we have tried to soften the blow of having to have huge amounts of stock in various different designs, by manufacturing a skirting board that is double sided. Simply, one design one side and another on the flip side. This halves the volume of stock required and doubles the number of options for the customer. If only all problems could be solved so simply! Whats more is we can combine any designs; Tauros & Ogee, Ogee & Pencil Round, Chamfered & Tauros? The choice is yours.
Send us your board and we will provide profiles to match it! Using our comprehensive colour database, there are very few finishes we are unable complement.
Starting with an unfinished base timber, various stains, waxes, oils and enhancers are hand applied to ensure an even and consistent colour. Once dry, the top coat is applied to give the desired finish, whether that be matt oil or gloss lacquer or anything else in between.
Minimal preparation, beautiful finish. Fix & forget, walk away without worry of having to return to replace or repair Parallel products.

The Frontier Scotia & Skirting profiles are quick and simple to fit, whether you are a seasoned carpenter or a DIY beginner. Follow the steps below, ensuring that you start with a clean and clear environment and the correct profile has been selected;
1, Measure and cut the scotia or skirting to the desired length. If joining pieces on a long run, it is often advisable to mirte the ends so as the join between the two pieces is neat and solid.
2, Apply adhesive to the reverse of the profile on the side which will be touching the wall. Once cured, this will allow the floor to ‘float’ underneath, whilst stuck in place.
3, Once positioned correctly the profile can be pinned through the front face and into the wall behind it. Pinning provides a secure fix but without the unattractive finish some screws can give on a small profile.
