Chair Rail

Revit Chair Rail Profile families

Chair rail is interior moulding applied on the wall about 1/3 of the way up from the  floor, paralleling any base or crown moulding, and encircling the room.  Originally used to prevent chairs from damaging the walls, it’s now used more for decorative purposes.  It can be made from more than one piece of moulding to build up the effect.

The numbers in our families are the cutter numbers used by the mill to make the millwork.  Most chair rails are 2' to 3" high.  The numbers indicate the style of the piece.
