About Porta Contours 

Porta Contours:

  • Are suitable for internal vertical and horizontal applications.
  • Have been designed for ease of installation with a secret fix tongue and groove connection.
  • Are suitable for curves down to a 1000mm radius. For tighter curves, down to a 500mm radius, Porta can supply matching corner beads for select profiles.
  • Can be used in conjunction with any other Contours profile to create a unique design.

Before You Start

Before you get started, work out how much material you will need. Measure the length of the wall and divide by the cover. The cover for all Contours profiles is 78mm, excluding Plateau-39 which is 39mm. We used 2.7m long Contours in the Riverine profile and cut these to 900mm high.

Step 1

If you have existing skirting boards, you can choose to keep or remove these. You can also choose to add a finishing bead to the top and bottom of the lining boards.

Step 2

Cut the lining boards to length. Save time and pre-seal the boards on all sides prior to installation. Attach the finishing board to the top of the finishing bead if required.

Step 3

When starting with your first board, make sure the tongue is facing out as this is where the fixings will be.

Step 4

As you install the lining boards, check that they are level. Also measure the wall at the top and bottom to ensure they are installed parallel.

step 5

If preferred, finish with a capping mould.
