Exteriors - Cornice, Label Moulds and String Course

Cornice, Label Moulds and String CourseA cornice is a projecting moulding along the top of a building, usually as a decorative eaves feature. Our GRP cornice adds distinctive style to any property, although it is predominantly featured on more substantial buildings. Choose between warm white or bright white if PVCu fascias are being installed.

To date we have undertaken a variety of projects. The lightweight nature of GRP allows bold or elaborate designs to be undertaken, whilst removing the dangers associated with installing heavy masonry alternatives. GRP cornice is the ideal solution for orangeries and larger conservatories.

Cornice, Label Moulds and String CourseColours & Styles - choose between a matt finish to match a traditional look, or bright white when used in conjunction with modern PVCu fascia systems. Stone effect or RAL colour references can be matched if required. We are able to complement our cornice with detailing to match your needs on site. Some of our clients require simple stop-ends (see table below for details), which alleviates time and effort cutting out shapes from plain PVCu board. These stop-ends can be supplied separately, or moulded onto the end of a standard length in the factory.

Our current cornice product range is listed below. In addition to exterior cornice we can offer interior cornices (coving), and flexible cornice systems suitable for curved walls.

Cornice joints are made easier by our male and female overlap. External and internal corners are available, usually with a 500mm return. This alleviates any requirement for mitring, and ensures a good finish at the most prominent points of the building. Radius Cornice can be undertaken where we are given accurate drawings and precise instructions. As our end product is rigid (unlike PVCu fascia) GRP cornice cannot be cured on site.

Installers should ensure that any fixings are applied after first pre-drilling the glass fibre returns. The upper edge of our cornice is designed to fit into a proprietary fascia groove. We do recommend that this has a bead of silicone applied to avoid disturbing drumming in high winds.

In addition to our GRP options we can also offer maintenance free UV stabilised polypropylene Square Tooth and Scalloped Tooth designs. These are produced in easily installed 4ft lengths, with secret fix via snap on covers. External, Internal Corners and End Caps allow clean continuous lines.
