Medium grained cork board sheets 640x950mm are perfect for making any surfaces to pin information, announcements, bulletins, photos etc. to. Great aesthetic, high elasticity and high shatter resistance make medium grained cork ideal for wall notice boards, information screens and display cases. Remember to even out the edges before the fixture – for example with a sharp wallpaper knife, when covering a larger surface. The joints between the sheets will decrease and the end result will be enhanced if cork edges are straight and smooth.
What is the best thickness?
The most widely used pins have an 11mm tip. A large cork board that is from 7 to 10mm thick is sufficient to pin office documents or family photos securely and freely. If the pin is supposed to go all the way through without damaging the wall technical cork of 12 to 15mm thickness is the right fit. If there is a soft lining to which the cork notice board will be glued to for decorative purposes, cork boards of 4 to 5mm thick will be sufficient. It is also possible to use styrofoam, soft fibreboards or cardboard. However, if there are no budget constraints as to the cork pin board, the best choice is the thick cork board of 20mm. Such a thick cork board wall can be glued directly to the wall or other surfaces, or can be used to make partitions between desktops that will reduce the noise and will serve as a practical and accessible cork pinboard.
