Moldings for indirect lighting are made from high density polyurethane. High density polyurethane is quickly becoming the most popular form of molding and a solution to many common problems. Polyurethane molding has many advantages over wood molding. One main benefit is that polyurethane is not effected by a change in climate or humidity where as wood is constantly expanding, contracting and warping. Some of the reasons to choose polyurethane moldings include its light weight, ability to adjust to moisture changes and it is also unappealing to bugs and termites! These reasons make polyurethane an excellent choice for home and commercial use.
Polyurethane is a great choice for basement moldings and baseboard. Wood will expand and contract with heat and moisture changes, because of this finding molding for basements is especially difficult. You can save money with polyurethane as it comes primed and ready to paint; also shipping is less expensive as it is much lighter than wood moldings! InvitingHome.com also features a line of high density polyurethane baseboards that have many great qualities. Not only are these baseboard moldings protected from climate changes they are stress resistant! This is an ideal feature for baseboards as they can easily be kicked or bumped. They are a great choice for high traffic areas and homes with children or pets.
Instillation is a synch because of polyurethane’s great qualities include its feather weight. When using molding for indirect lighting the molding is only attached to the wall, not both the wall and ceiling. This means that the wall is the only means of support for a molding. Using polyurethane moldings to install indirect lighting will put less stress on your wall.
Another advantage is that polyurethane does not react to the heat of the indirect lighting, rope or LED lights. This is an advantage if you live in an area where the climate is constantly changing but also because lights can generate heat.
If you are concerned about saving space indirect lighting is an excellent choice for your home. Another great advantage for indirect lighting is that it provides stylish lighting to a room without taking up space of table or floor lamps. When there is no space in long hallways for floor lamps, LED lights or rope lights can safely illuminate passage through the hallway.
Moldings are stocked in 8 foot and 6’6″ foot lengths. Some material can be specially ordered in longer lengths for bigger jobs. Also, many of the molding materials are available in flexible material for arches or slightly curved walls.
Polyurethane molding is created in a mold using Bi-Mold and Computer-Matched technology. This insures that each piece will look identical to the last. It is important for fast and easy installation that each piece lines up correctly. We provide special adhesive that is very safe to use and does not omit any harmful fumes. With adhesive, liquid nails and a few molding nails for reinforcement your molding will be safely and securely installed.
