In architecture, skirting refers to the trim or molding that is installed along the bottom edge of a wall where it meets the floor. It is often used to cover the gap between the wall and the floor and to protect the wall from damage.
Skirting can be made from a variety of materials, including wood, plaster, or metal, and can be decorative or functional in nature.
Skirting is a common element in both residential and commercial buildings and can be found in a variety of styles to suit different design aesthetics.

A skirtings detail drawing is a technical drawing that shows the design and construction of a skirtings system in a building. It typically includes dimensions, materials, and any necessary installation details. Skirtings detail drawings are used by architects, engineers, and contractors to specify and install skirtings in a building.
They may be included as part of a set of construction documents or may be provided as a standalone drawing. The purpose of a skirtings detail drawing is to ensure that the skirting is properly installed and functions as intended.
In addition to showing the dimensions and materials of the skirtings, a skirting detail drawing may also include information on the height of the skirtings relative to the floor, any transitions or changes in the skirtings design (such as at doorways or along curves), and any necessary fastening or support details.
It may also show any necessary clearance or ventilation requirements and may indicate any special finishes or treatments that should be applied to the skirting.
Skirtings detail drawings may be drawn to scale and may include cross-sections or other views to provide a more complete understanding of the skirting system.
