While their popularity has dwindled over the years, there is no doubt that dado rails, the common name used for interior mouldings placed horizontally along walls, still have practical uses for both residential and commercial buildings.
Traditionally manufactured from wood, modern dado rails are made from a variety of materials, including timber, medium-density fibreboard (MDF), PVC, rubber or aluminium.
Recycled polystyrene dado rails are more flexible and versatile than ever, with both aesthetic and practical benefits.
- Dado rails can still contribute with a unique decorative effect to any room and create a bold visual impact by marking the space between two different colours or wallpaper patterns for walls. They can be placed at various heights, depending on the effect desired.
- Compared to traditional options, recycled EPS dado rails provide a more seamless installation that can go uninterrupted across the wall. They are easier to handle even at longer lengths, making installation less complicated. For example, Isowood, the recycled EPS dado rails range produced by Isowall, provides standard 3-metre measurements.
- Recycled EPS dado rails have the advantage of protecting the walls from stains, dirt, mould, moisture and damp. They are ideal for densely populated and trafficked rooms.
- Recycled EPS dado rails can accommodate space for concealing cables and electrical wiring. Our Isowood range makes provisions for practical applications that mask unwanted cabling.
- Recycled EPS dado rails are an eco-friendly alternative to traditional dado rails, by avoiding the use of chemically based stains, paints and solvents, which are typically used to treat hardwood products.
In conclusion, recycled EPS dado rails designs are an ideal modern alternative – extremely durable, waterproof, wiring-friendly, easy to install, and recyclable.
