Timber architraves are wooden mouldings or trims used to frame doors, windows and other openings in a building


Timber architraves are wooden mouldings or trims that are used to frame doors, windows, and other openings in a building. They are typically fixed around the edges of these openings and provide a decorative and functional finish to the surrounding wall or surface.

Architraves have been used for centuries in architectural design and can be found in both traditional and modern buildings. They are commonly made from a range of different timbers, including pine, oak, and mahogany. Some architraves may also be painted or stained to match the surrounding decor of a room or building.

Architraves are primarily used for aesthetic purposes, as they can add a decorative touch to a room or building. They can also be used to cover gaps between the wall and the door or window frame, helping to prevent drafts and improve insulation. Additionally, architraves can protect the edges of doors and windows from wear and tear, extending their lifespan and reducing the need for maintenance.

A range of wooden architrave profiles are available from Premier Forest Products, including bullnose, pencil rounded, square edge, round edge, chamfered, torus, ogee and torus/ogee reversible.  Our wooden architraves are produced in both softwood (pine) and hardwood (Oak, American White Ash, Tulipwood), and bespoke options are available.  Hardwood is generally tougher and more durable, with softwood being a more cost effective option.

Premier Forest Products has invested in state-of-the-art machinery which enables us to produce top-quality, precision-cut architraves and moulding components which can be either a standard profile, or customised to your bespoke design.
