This kit contains everything you need for covering 8 running feet of wall, up to 39 1/2" high. The kit consists of: 1 - 8 ft length of lower rail, tall cap trim, shoe trim, and 4 - 8 ft lengths of beadboard planks with 3 beads per plank (enough for 8 running feet). The rails and stiles are made from primed MDF, the cap is made from primed FJ poplar for better impact and moisture resistance, and the shoe trim is made from cellular PVC for ultimate water resistance.
When the 4 lengths of beadboard are cut into 3, you end up with 12 beadboard stiles (32" high). The cap and bottom rail adds 7.5" of height, with the 32" stiles, an overall height of 39.5" can be achieved. We recommend 38" as a good height for walls with 8 foot ceilings. For a 38" overall height, simply cut the stiles down to 30 1/2" and discard the rest. If you add 2 extra planks, for a total of 6, they can be cut in half and give an overall height of up to 58.5". For full wall applications, you will need 4 plus 8 planks for a total of 12 planks to cover 8 ft in length 106.5" high.
This paint grade, MDF system uses 8-inch-wide interlocking planks divided visually by a bead running down the center. The horizontal bottom and top rails are also notched to fit over the ends of the beadboard planks, making it easy to(more...)
