In architecture, dado refers simply to the lower part of the wall. Historically, this would be separated from the upper section with a dado rail – a horizontal piece of moulding which runs perpendicular to the skirting board along the whole length of the room.
The dado section was then decorated, usually with panelling or wainscoting. This would be installed to cover and protect the lower section of wall from the stains caused by rising damp, while the dado rail – or chair rail – would provide protection from the bumps and marks caused by furniture, particularly the backs of chairs.
In modern times, dado treatment is not nearly as prevalent since rising damp and bumped walls are generally less of an issue, but it can still be used to create an aesthetic effect. Despite its decreasing use, Timbersource still possess the skills and experience to provide timber dado products like dado rails and dado panelling to your exact specifications, whether you wish to order a specific standard profile, need to replicate existing dado, or are looking for a bespoke job.
