Mount Boards

We stock a vast array of mount boards to cater to the many display and fine art applications.
All our boards are stored and cut in house to ensure optimum quality and a speedy service.

Cards

Cards (or Screen boards) are a low-cost mounting option most commonly used in point of sale applications. We supply in 0.5, 1 and 2 mm. We also have an archival option in 1.6 mm for art applications.


Foamboard

Foamboard is a low cost lightweight board for general purpose mounting and as a backing in frames. It is constructed with paper on both faces and a polyfoam core. Foamboard is very light and easy to handle and relatively inexpensive, but it is prone to bowing and dents easily. We supply Foamboard in 5 and 10mm.


Gatorboard

Gatorboard is a lightweight board which is strong and resists bowing. It has a polyfoam core, but the facing material is melamine impregnated to give it a hard surface. Gatorboards are much stronger than ordinary Foamboards and less prone to bowing making them the board of choice for large works, longer term applications and as a premium backing in frames. We supply Gatorboards in 5, 10 and 20 mm. The 10 and 20 mm comes with a black or white edging as a finish.


Kapamount

Kapamount is a lightweight board with a polyurethane core and aluminium layer reinforcement in its outer skin which makes this board strong and resistant to bowing. Its also has a very smooth surface making it ideal for mounting gloss prints and as premium backing in frames. We supply Kapamount in 5 and 10 mm


Customwood or MDF

Customwood or MDF are wood fibre panels. They are smooth and strong, but heavy. Good as a general-purpose mounting option where weight is not an issue. We supply Customwood in 3, 6, 9 and 12 mm.


Forex

Forex is a foamed PVC, lightweight and strong, but not entirely rigid. Main applications are in display and point of sale and can also be used short term outdoors. Available in 3 and 5 mm and in white and black. Also available in super oversize 2m x 3m.


Styrene

Styrene (or HIPS) is a low cost flexible backing. It is smooth and doesn’t dent because of its dense makeup. Available in white or black and in 1mm


Acrylics

Acrylics are super smooth and strong, ideal for mounting of high gloss prints. Clear acrylic is also used for face mounting where the print is mounted under the acrylic using optically clear adhesive. We supply acrylics in 3, 4.5, 6 and 10 mm.


Alupanel

Alupanels are aluminium skinned composite boards with a poly core. The aluminium gives these boards great strength, smoothness and archival properties. Alupanels are used in high end archival mounting.
