Case study/Rationale

Traditional run in-situ cornice moulds require two bearing points, one on the wall and one on the ceiling. These allow the mould to run true and straight without excessive movement and deviation from the running line. In this instance we were informed that the wall paper was to remain intact on the wall, this precluded the use of a traditional mould. Furthermore, because the original mould had been run in-situ, several moulding sections we flush or slightly recessed below the ceiling line. This precludes the use of pre-made moulding sections being run down on a bench and fitted, as they would not have lined in to the existing moulding, due the additional thickness this method requires for the inclusion of reinforcements for fixing and transportation. 


Enter the twin slipper peg mould- this mould has two bearing points in the same running plain and the addition of two pegs allow it to travers predetermined curves. This type of mould is difficult to construct and run particularly with large section in-situ mouldings, as it requires “over engineering” to maintain rigidity and stability and is traditionally used for running small section in-situ angle moulding and details due to the inherent difficulties in running this type of mould.
