Medium grained cork board sheets 640x950mm are ideal for making any surfaces to pin information, announcements, bulletins etc. to. High elasticity, great aesthetic and high shatter resistance make medium grained cork perfect for wall notice boards, display cases and information screens. When covering a larger surface remember about evening out the edges before the fixture – for example with a sharp wallpaper knife. Straight and smooth cork edges will decrease the joints between the sheets and enhance the end result.
What is the best thickness?
The most widely used pins have an 11mm tip. To pin office documents or family vacation photos securely and freely, a cork board that is from 7 to 10mm thick is sufficient. 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. Cork boards of 4 to 5mm thick will be sufficient if there is a soft lining to which the cork board will be glued to for decorative purposes. Soft fibreboards, styrofoam or cardboard can be used. But if there are no budget constraints as to the cork pinboard, the best the thick cork board of 20mm. Such a thick cork board 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.
635x940mm for coarse grained cork sheets and 640x950mm for medium grained and fine-grained cork sheets are the biggest available formats in ‘Cork Sheets’ section. If this format is not satisfactory, cork rolls available in the ‘Cork Rolls’ section in the menu on the left may be a great solution. There are rolls of cork available in thicknesses from 2 to 10mm in any desirable quantity, as they are sold by linear metres.
How to fix medium grained cork sheets and what tools to use?
Cork sheets are a fine material that can be fixed in a variety of ways. The cheapest and the easiest method to fix them is by gluing them with cork glue. We recommend Wakol D-3540 that can be found in our ‘Cork Glues’ section. Our advice is to use around 120 grams of glue per sheet, which means that 0.8kg of glue is enough for 6 sheets, and a bucket of 2.5kg - 20 sheets. Of course using cork glue is not obligatory. The most widely used fixing glues and strong wood binders. It is best to choose a product with good initial tack, as it will make the job easier and faster, especially for the less experienced.
Those that are not traditional glue enthusiasts will surely be interested in our self adhesive cork tiles that can be found in the category nearby. Fixture of the self adhesive cork tiles is fast, clean and simple. After taking off the protective foil just glue the panel on prepared selected surface. With the help of good double-sided tape it is possible to create self adhesive cork wall tiles at home – what is left is to order a good medium grained cork sheet.
Needing some finishing?
Cork board tiles can be left alone without any finish. They can also be finished in any way possible. Cork wall tiles can be painted over with any paint, lacquer or wood stain to enhance or cover up the cork’s structure. If the cork board tiles will be exposed to dirt and will be washed frequently, it is worth finishing it with a protective product. The cheapest and least labour intensive way to finish it is... leaving the cork wall tiles unfinished! The original structure will bring a new and natural dimension to the interior and furthermore such a cork wall can be a perfect cork pin board for the whole family!
