Axxent Coving & Cornice Collection is the preferred choice for the DIY installer. Each design is lightweight and much easier and quicker to install than fibrous cement or plaster coving or cornice. Axxent ceiling coving and cornice is made from a lightweight and hard polyurethane which is supplied factory painted with a primer coat. Compared to fibrous cement and plaster, paint will not be absorbed into our coving and cornice, greatly reducing the finishing painting required.
Tradesman skills are not required, as this hardened polyurethane material can easily be installed by one person. Typically Axxent ceiling coving and cornice can be installed on one day, and painted the next. Gaps due to uneven walls are usually not a problem as our adhesive will also double as filler disguising minor uneven surfaces in the wall or ceiling. The Axxent Collection ceiling coving and cornice is ideal for most installations with standard ceiling heights and room sizes. Most designs of coving and cornice in this collection are in stock and available for delivery within 48 hours during week days. View Axxent Ceiling Coving & Cornice Mouldings.

Advantages of Orac Decor Coving and Cornice
Orac Décor coving and cornice has been installed in homes and exclusive developments throughout the world. See our Projects section for examples. The majority of European builders specify polyurethane coving and cornice and with good reason. ORAC nv/sa is the leading European manufacturer of innovative decorative synthetic mouldings and ornaments.
Why?:If Polyurethane coving or cornice had been invented before plaster coving or cornice, why would plaster have ever been used? We
are asked by traditionalists, 'but it's not plaster?' Absolutely not. It is so much a better material. However to satisfy the traditionalists, once installed it is
indistinguishable from plaster coving and cornice.
Immediate installation: Our coving and cornice is stocked at our central depot and for an order in the morning delivery for in stock items is next working day. The adhesives to install Orac Decor coving and cornice cures quickly to allow finishing within hours. Newly manufactured plaster coving and cornice can take up to two weeks to dry sufficiently before installing. Additionally installation of plaster takes considerably longer than polyurethane coving and cornice. Plaster coving and cornice will also take longer to dry before finishing can commence.
Clean: House Martin coving and cornice only needs adhesive to install, ideal for refurbishment, decorating and new build. Fibrous cement and plaster coving or cornice installations result in large amounts of excess water and dust during installation. This is not ideal in anything but a new build and can result in damage to existing infrastructure.
Easy to install: House Martin coving and cornice can be easily installed by one person. Our grab adhesive and the lightweight polyurethane material is in stark contrast to fibrous cement and plaster which normally needs two people to handle and requires support pinning, whilst the plaster coving cornice dries, which has to be removed later.
Time saving: House Martin coving and cornice can be installed considerably faster, by one person rather than two. Fibrous cement and plaster coving or cornice usually needs experience and trade skills adding to the time required.
Fast finishing: House Martin coving and cornice is supplied painted with a primer surface. This smooth non porous surface only requires a top coat of paint. Plaster coving and cornice is usually porous and requires sealing. With plaster multiple coats of paint are usually needed to achieve a good finish on what is often a rough surface.
Detailed designs: House Martin Luxxus coving and cornice is made by Orac Décor in steel moulds which produces excellent definition and consistency. Plaster coving or cornice moulds tend to produce a slightly rounded finish to the detailing and this rounding increases with the repeated use of the moulds. This can result in matching difficulties. House Martin Axxent coving and cornice is manufactured by extruding. With most of the designs being 'line' this enables these profiles to be better defined and more consistent than plaster coving or cornice.
Strong and shock resistant:Polyurethane coving and cornice is strong and shock resistant. Fibrous cement and plaster coving and cornice can easily chip and crack when being handled. This also makes transportation problematic.
Cracks: Over time fibrous cement and plaster coving or cornice tends to develop cracks as result in changes of humidity. Orac coving and cornice will not, and with the use of ExtraFix, joints and mitres fuse and become super strong.
Humid and exterior environments: Polyurethane coving and cornice is completely impervious to moisture, so this material is ideal not only to avoid long term cracking, but in bathrooms and kitchens. It can even be used outside. Fibrous cement and plaster coving or cornice will absorb moisture and dry resulting in expansion and contraction.
'Flexi' Coving cornice for curved walls: Orac Décor Flexi coving and cornice is a unique product. Made in the same steel moulds as the rigid lengths this enables both materials to be installed together. The rigid coving and cornice used on the straight walls and Flexi on the curved walls. The need for bespoke installation of coving and cornice in bays and curved walls is a thing of the past.
Depending on the number of lengths required most of House Martin coving and cornice is held in stock. An order in the morning can be delivered next working day. If additional stock is needed we have weekly container deliveries from the factory, so delivery to the customer should never be more than a week or so. We can, and have delivered throughout Europe, so please do not hesitate to phone for a quote. It can be much cheaper than you think.
For the lower value orders there is a carriage charge, but please remember these items have to be packed as per the order and, being over 1.6m Royal Mail will not take them, so have to go by courier. This impacts on the Highlands of Scotland and Islands as the carriers charge more. Please phone for a quote as we will always try to accommodate you.
A great service is our sample service. There is no better way to choose your coving and cornice, but in the room it is to be installed. On the individual product page, scroll down to the sample option. There is a one off packing and carriage charge of £4 (this includes a brochure) and 99p per sample. It is often a good idea to order more than one design to help with your choice by having comparisons. For those situations where matching an existing coving or cornice installation is required please give us a call and we will try to help. We are so confident with our coving and cornice products we have no problem with returns, all we ask is the return be within our terms and conditions.
