Recessed Wall Paneled, Flexible Stair Kit
For curved stair cases, we provide the flexible base and top rails which can take the shape of the walls regardless of the curve. The stiles (they run vertically) come uncut and un-shaped to allow for customizing of height on site. You should order the router bit to shape the stiles. Call us if you have any questions regarding stairs or curved walls.

Another Elite Trimworks first. Wall Panelled Flexible Wainscoting Kit 8 feet long", for Curved walls. This is our fourth generation of extra deep recessed wainscoting kit specificity made for staircase applications for kits sold since 2004. In order to keep cost down, we use two different materials. A flexible polyurethane Wainscot Bullnose Cap and the top rail, bottom rail and wainscot shoe are made from white flexible cellular PVC. The stiles are made from primed MDF just like the standard rigid ones are.
The styles run up and down, so they do not need to flex, take note that we included two 8 ft MDF Styles in our kit that can make 4 to 6 stiles, depending on the desired height. They need to be shaped according to the rise on the staircase on site. As a convenience, we offer the Router Bit here on line.

Flexible Moulding Installation Tips
For best results, the use of construction type adhesive in addition to pneumatic pin nailing to wall or ceiling abutments, Mitre Bond instant adhesive on all end joints, is recommended. Use of tape or clamps may be helpful in securing material in position while adhesives bond. Nails should be kept to a minimum 3/8" from any edge.
Material can be cut, shaped and sanded using standard woodworking equipment. Note that the wood grain on stain grade material is only on the surface and will be eliminated if sanded.
The use of water base stain such as Minwax work wells and is recommended. Apply with brush or rag and wipe off. Additional coats may be applied if necessary to match wood. Be sure to allow first coat to dry completely before applying more stain. Finish with clear coat after staining.
Primer coats are not recommended. Use water based Acrylic Latex Paint.
When using Alkyd Enamels an exterior primer such as Kilz® is required. When using Alkyd Enamels additional drying time may be necessary. Never paint before installation. The material is flexible and the paint may crack during installation.
