wood-alternatives for trim moulding?
Does anyone know of any products on the market that are an alternative to wood moulding profiles? Essentially I need a base cap 3/4 x 1-3/8".
I would like to replace the panel moldings in two elevators at a senior living center as they are worn- with something more durable if possible. They get scuffed regularly. All the flat surfaces are laminated faux wood grain.
I need stain grade or faux wood grain in a color match, it could be entirely synthetic, but I an wary of PVC products for toxicity in fires. I know about Duraflex by Resin Art, but don't believe the material would be any harder than wood (and I don't need flexible moulding). I also see a website for Spectrum Molding which is MDF with a PVC finish like thermafoil which would probably look good but not sure if it'd be that durable...?
I am not sure what species is currently installed so having a harder species milled in my profiles may be another option.
Thanks for any info!
