Wooden Backing Boards

 

Our carpenters make each backing board to order in the timber required. We can offer discounts to the trade when ordered in quantites of six or more. The thickness of the backing board depends on size. Thicker timber is used for the larger backing boards to stop cupping or bowing of the wood. Our backing boards can be used indoors or outdoors.

A Backing Boards need to be 20 - 25mm larger in height and width than the plaque.

We can make the backing boards in any of the timbers we stock - Click here for more information


 

Oak is the most popular as it is such a beautiful timber. However we do have Sapele - a red colour wood similar to mahogany. Iroko which is similar to teak is ideal for backing boards as it is full of oil so needs less maintenance.

A black backing board is another option, for these we can used a black wood preservative on oak. Alternatively we can paint a hardwood backing board black, white, light grey or light green. Other colours are available too from our stock colours @ a cost of £5.

The backing boards will normally be drilled with fixing holes which are hidden by the plaque. The plaques themselves can be drilled or double sided tape applied. If the tape option is preferred, the plaque will not be sent attached to the board (unless requested otherwise). Backing Boards are normally oiled or sprayed with a hard wearing satin varnish to leaving a natural wood look. We can however paint the boards black, white, light green or light grey. Other colours are available for an extra £5.


Corian Backing Boards

Corian can also be used for backing boards. It looks and feels like stone and has the advantage of being completely weatherproof without any treatment.  If you decide on a corian backing board we normally supply your plaque with exterior double sided tape in order for you to fix your plaque once the backing board is in place. Holes are drilled into the corian to fix it to a wall.  If you wanted to fix the board to a tree stake we are able to embed stainless steel inserts into the corian and supply fixing bolts.  £11 for one, £14.50 for two (£3.50 for each additional insert fitted
