Pressed metal cornices to finish around the edges of your ceiling


Pressed metal cornices are used to form a decorative finish around the areas where walls meet ceilings. The metal cornices have flanges along the length of them. These flanges serve a purpose when they are being nailed up.

Because they have flanges on them it makes them unsuitable for use on flat surfaces such as walls. Their design is such that they are useful for bridging corners, i.e. they are made to bridge across the ninety degree angle where the wall meets the ceiling. They won't sit flat on a wall. If you need help in choosing cornice to match your ceiling then please feel free to ask for my advice.


The pressed metal cornices in the orange background:

These cornices are made by Denyer Manufacturing and are despatched with their etch primer on them already. Etch primer is the important element that makes the paint stick to the metal. So that is a good point. The cornices will cost more per lineal metre but then you won't have to buy or apply the etch primer. These cornices can sometimes (not always) take a couple of weeks to be ready to send. So if there is great urgency to receive your cornices then skip past this first group.

These cornices are made by Pressed Tin Panels ® and are despatched minus their etch primer so you will need to buy and apply the primer prior to painting the panels. Because the cornices are not primed they are cheaper per lineal metre. These cornices are generally in stock and are usually despatched from the factory very quickly.
