Coved floor base molding


Hey! The local health department requires that the walls/floor in a store room I am using be covered with some form of molding. The only requirement is that the molding is coved/curved (making it easier to clean)

Would anybody give me advice as to a cheap, easy to install, and durable product to accomplish this?

Thanks!

not sure what flooring stores may be near you, but this is one that's available from HD to give you an idea.

Papa,

The vinyl base wrangler mentioned should meet specs, but in some commercial rooms they may want 6" high base. I think rubber is better than vinyl, but both are acceptable.

Thanks guys. There's a slight plot twist - about an inch above the floor, there is a pvc pipe anchored to the wall, running parallel to the ground for the length of the wall. Can the products you mentioned be cut to size?

How about a picture?
NO baseboard will work with a pipe in the way?
What's in the pipe? Wires, air, water?

The vinyl cove that Wrangler identified would be the cheapest and easiest. Cuts with scissors. If you do get the vinyl cove do your self a favor and get the large glue tubes and the applicator attachment to apply the glue. Great time saver

I would remove the conduit clips. Slide the cove behind the pipe, and then reattach

Awesome! So just a spanner or screwdriver to remove them?

I would be using an impact driver with the right sized socket to remove the clips

Thanks for the advice! If I can get my hands on one of those, how would I reattach the pipe to the molding that is now behind it? Some kind of staple? I'm on a limited budget and can't afford any special equipment.

An inexpensive 6 in 1 screwdriver will do the trick. Part of the "6" is the 1/4" and 5/16" nut driver that holds the Phillips/standard screw driver bits. Back the screw out, slip base behind pipe and screw it back in the same spot.
