Rebate Skirting Explained

What is rebate:

A machine cut section from the back of the skirting board, created for a variety of uses. Most commonly used to hide unsightly cables and wires or to cover up pipes running along the wall. Additionally, it can be used to cover old skirting to save time taking it up. Not everybody can afford taking up your flooring to install expensive built-in under floor wiring, so rebate is the perfect solution.


Nobody likes the look of loose cables or wires hanging around the floor. Not only is it an unattractive look, but it can also be a trip hazard meaning it will be unsafe. This issue can be resolved with rebate skirting. The Skirting UK are able to design your desired skirting board to hide those annoying wires. For cables, we have set sizes. For skirting with an 18mm depth we make a 12mm x 20mm cut and with a 25mm depth = 19mm x 20mm cut. These will be suitable for general cables and wires, nevertheless, we are able to custom make to your desired size.
