Wooden Backing Boards

We can supply wooden backing boards in two thicknesses.

They are most often made in Oak which is a beautiful timber.

However we do have Sapele (similar to mahogany)Iroko (similar to teak). Iroko is full of oil so needs less maintenance.

Or Balau which is also full of oil, extremely durable and almost maintenance free. However it not the prettiest of our woods and can have small black marks in it. If you want a specific timber, please state on the order form.

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

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 toleaving a natural wood look. We can however paint the timber green, blue, grey or black.

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

P&P - Backing Board and Sign

When finding the price of a backing board you will need to add about 20 - 25mm to the size of the plaque. eg  plate 100 x 150mm will need a backing board 125 x 175mm.
If you have an indoor site we do have a range of narrow plank joined oak backing boards which are only suitable for indoor use, but may work out cheaper.
