PLS STANDARD BASEBOARD CONSTRUCTION SERVICE

PLEASE NOTE ALL BASEBOARDS ARE CONSTRUCTED ACCORDING TO OUR TERMS OF TRADE (WHERE SECTIONS APPLY). PLEASE CLICK HERE TO READ BEFORE PLACING AN ORDER.

Price list at the bottom of this page. First some useful information for you to consider.

Baseboards are constructed using the chosen top surface with a PSE soft wood metric 3"x1" or 2"x1" frame. All joints are PVA glued and screwed where appropriate. Optional extras include:

Undercoating the boards with grey paint to act as a base for the scenery, as grey is the ideal basecoat colour for ballast, roads etc.
Trestles - either bespoke timber or folding steel.
Braced legs with or without adjustable feet.
 

 
Castors to allow a board to be moved. Ideal on larger boards particularly when located in the home or garage. Legs with castors form part of a carrier frame. Castors can be requested as free or locking.

Engineers dowels for accurate alignment of baseboards. Required when baseboards are regularly taken apart and joined together. These are used in addition to the standard method of fixing using coach bolts which tend to enlarge their locating holes when regularly used making accurate alignment difficult. 
 

 
Flight case plastic corners on single boards to protect against sharp corners - ideal where children are walking near to or around the baseboard.
 

 
Taped edges to cover the fixing screws on the outer edges - best used along with flight case corners. This can be seen in the image to the right above showing corner protectors on a small N gauge layout.
Cable holes can be drilled in the centre of all internal cross member frames.
Where baseboards are required to fit around the perimeter of a room, access may be required to a central 'well' area for control or maintenance. A lifting or removable baseboard section may be required. Please visit Specialist Joinery for more information.
Not included in this price list is specialist joinery. We often receive enquiries for folding baseboards as shown below. Please visit Specialist Joinery for more information.

 

PLEASE NOTE:

  • All prices include VAT at the current rate.

  • All dimensions stated are approximate and do not allow for the width of the saw blade when machine cutting sheet timber. This may reduce the finished dimensions by up to 3mm to both width and length.

  • Prices quoted are for collection from Nottingham only. If the client wishes to arrange courier collection basic wrapping is recommended. This will not protect the boards from heavy handling but will help in general transit. This usually consists of cardboard edge protection to the board surface and bailing film wrap. No guarantee is given that this wrapping will fully protect the items in courier transit. We therefore recommend you check the couriers insurance limitations and insure as required. An additional charge will be made for wrapping the boards for courier transit.

  • When a courier service is used, PLS will supply the client with the necessary details to complete the collection (collection address, parcel dimensions and approximate weight - this is only a guide). PLS accept no responsibility when using a courier service - please refer to their terms of trade.

  • Delivery and installatioin by PLS Layouts can be arranged - usually for larger installtions.

  • Bespoke boards i.e. made to your requirements and not standard baseboard dimensions as shown below can be manufactured by request.

  • Payment in full must be made before baseboard construction will commence.
