    • Design Inspiration
    • Quality heavy weight embossed vinyl – durable, washable, good light fastness,
    • Paste the wall advantages
    • Areas you can use it

    Design ID ‘Material Concepts’ range – inspired by our inhabited world.

    Introduction

    The Design ID material concepts range encapsulates eight design themes each available in three colour ways. Each design is inspired by material surfaces that are commonplace in our inhabited world but have a unique beauty that will enhance any home;

     Design ID ‘Shuttered Concrete’ inspired by the beautiful, natural, surface effect timber shuttering creates on this, most brutal of all construction materials.  

     Available in: white, grey or dark silver.

    Design ID ‘Marrakesh Tile’ inspired by the ancient patinated tiles often found in this ancient medieval walled city. 

    Available in: duck egg/copper, soft grey/rose gold or dark grey fusion

    Design ID ‘Slate Tile’ inspired by this most useful and attractive natural material and the multitude of colours it takes on when exposed to its local environment.

    Available in: dark grey/silver metallic, light grey/bronze metallic or coloured slate/gold metallic

    Design ID ‘Parquetry’ inspired by the beautiful wooden parquetry floors of late nineteenth century Parisian Apartments using contrasting oak, lime and cherry timbers.

    Available in; ‘natural wood’, ‘grey wash’ and ‘sun bleached’

    Design ID ‘Aspenite’ inspired by the beautiful surface effect created unintentionally in the manufacture of one of the most commonplace and functional timber construction products. Popularly known as Orientated Strand Board it is also known as ‘Flakeboard’ and ‘Aspenite’.

    Available in; ‘natural wood’, ‘grey’ and ‘aged white’

    Design ID ‘Maple Bark’ inspired by the fairly commonplace but beautiful Silver Maple trees often to be found sharing and enhancing our town and city scapes.

    Available in: aged white/silver metallic, aged white/copper metallic and natural/gold metallic.

    Design ID ‘Compressed Cork’, celebrating the beautiful, naturally riven surface of compressed cork. One of the most sustainable and natural products in the modern world with a multitude of practical purposes.

    Available in: natural/silver metallic, aged white/silver metallic and pinkgrey/silver metallic.

    Design ID ‘Dolomite Marble’, inspired by this most beautiful of building materials created naturally by intense pressure and heat.

    Available in: soft grey/silver metallic, soft white/silver metallic and soft white/gold metallic.

    Design ID ‘Material Concepts’ products represent the best in quality heavy weight embossed vinyl products

    All the products consist of a very high quality base non-woven, textile reinforced paper covered in a heavy layer of vinyl that is coloured and embossed to bring the design alive in both a visual and textile sense. Each roll weighs in at a hefty 1.5 KG giving a sense of the quality of the products.

    The dense embossed Vinyl layer completely covers the surface to create a washable surface, tactile, durable and has good light fastness qualities.

    Design ID ‘Material Concepts’ products are among the easiest products to hang because they are suitable for ‘Paste the Wall’ technique.

    The backing paper of all Design ID Material Concepts’ rolls is a non-woven textile reinforced type that means the ‘Design ID Material Concepts’ range is dimensionally stable – in other words it does not shrink or expand more than 0.2% when pasted or wet.

    So you can apply paste to the wall and hang the product directly to the pasted area for quicker easier decorating OR if you prefer, use a paste table and apply paste to pre-cut lengths of the paper before hanging.

    Either way you can be sure of great results.

    Design ID ‘Material Concepts’ products will add real tasteful interest to any wall, whilst if required providing a canvas for decorative items and features rather than fighting against them.

    The durable finish means they will resist wear and tear in high traffic areas as well as resist the heat and steam of a kitchen or bathroom, areas where the washable surface is another great advantage.

    Design ID ‘Material Concepts’ products are high quality heavyweight products so it is important to match them with a high quality adhesive that will ensure the paper stays stuck to the wall for as long as you want it to. We recommend a ready mixed adhesive suitable for heavyweight vinyl. For more information please visit: www.coveryourwall.co.uk/wallpaper/printed-wallpapers/design-id-material-concepts/

     

     

  • Wallrock® KV600: wall insulation and energy saving in your house

    • Insulates and saves energy
    • Combats condensation and mould
    • Smooths out rough and uneven surfaces - Tough and Durable too
    • Paste the wall application

     Wallrock KV600 insulates your house and saves you energy

    Wallrock KV600 is the most effective paper in the thermally efficient wallpaper range.

    Made of the same material as the Wallrock® Thermal Liner but 25% thicker, Wallrock KV600 insulates the walls and helps you save energy at the same time.

    How is that possible for simple wallpaper? Wallrock KV600 is not just your standard wallpaper, but it’s a composite product consisting of a PVC free insulation layer permanently bonded to a heavy duty reinforced liner.

    Wallrock KV600 works by holding the heat energy at the wall surface and reflecting it back into the room; this means that when you use it to insulate your walls it reduces heat loss and warming up times, effectively saving energy. Visit: www.coveryourwall.co.uk/wallrock-kv600-thermal-liner-insulation.html

    Rooms warm up much quicker with Wallrock® KV600

     

    Wallrock KV600 prevents condensation and mould in your house

    Condensation forms on walls when warm room air comes into contact with a cold surface, such as a wall. Thanks to its thick 4mm layer, Wallrock KV600 retains the heat at the surface and allows the walls to breathe, protecting your room from condensation, so you can say goodbye to unpleasant mould that often forms in the corners of your house.

    Wallrock KV600 smooths out uneven surfaces

    Wallrock KV600 not only insulates your walls and protects them from mould and condensation, it is also great as a base to use onto uneven surfaces such as old and cracked plaster. There’s no need to re-plaster those walls, thanks to its strength and thickness Wallrock KV600 covers cracks and reinforces rough surfaces, giving a smooth uniform finish that will last for a long time.

    After you have applied Wallrock KV600 to your walls, you can paint on it directly, or for even better results you can apply Wallrock® Fibreliner on top for a really high end finish.

    Apply Wallrock KV600 with paste the wall technique

    Wallrock KV600 is very easy to apply as well: it’s a paste the wall type of paper, meaning that it can be applied straight from the roll onto the wall. All you have to do is paste the wall with Wallrock Thermal Liner Adhesive and you are good to go.

    Vynaglypta Compact Vinyl – where traditional Anaglypta quality meets contemporary design and colour in a hardwearing finish. Visit: https://www.coveryourwall.co.uk/wallpaper/anaglypta/anaglypta-vynaglypta/

    Anaglypta® Vynaglypta – available in a range of colours to suit all tastes

     

    1 Vynaglypta is the most recent form of Anaglypta, fusing modern materials, solid compact vinyl, beautifully embossed and laminated to our own high quality sustainable base paper.

    2 Vynaglypta has a beautiful contemporary style but with traditional hard wearing Anaglypta characteristics.

    3 But Vynaglypta has the added twist to differentiate it from other Anaglypta products as it is supplied pre coloured. Seven contemporary colour choices are on offer including 3 metallics and also a white option for the true Anaglypta purist.The Colour palette consists of Cornish White, Honey Beige, Dove Grey, Sable, Silver Shadow, Black shadow and soon to be launched ‘Copper Shimmer’.

    4 Vynaglypta has a heavy embossed vinyl coating to emphasise the beautiful relief and colour. The heavy compact vinyl coating  gives it the added bonus of disguising defects in walls such as light cracks and small depressions in the wall surface.

    5 Vynaglypta Compacted Vinyl is one of the most hardwearing finishes available on any wall paper so durability is built in. The colour is resistant to fade and wear so a long service life is guaranteed even in demanding high traffic areas. As with any wallcovering, even the most durable types – damage can result over time at the surface so we have ensured the surface is paintable just like any othe Anaglypta product ensuring its service life can be extended

    6 Vynaglypta is a heavyweight wallcovering so it needs applying with a good quality ready mixed adhesive such as Wallrock Power Adhesive or Erfurt MAV Easy Paste, or for that matter most other good quality ready mixed will do. We do not recommend most flake adhesives as their bond strength is inferior.

  • Wallrock® Thermal Liner – make your home cosier with interior wall insulation

    • Insulates and saves energy
    • Combats condensation and mould
    • Smooths out rough and uneven surfaces - Tough and Durable too
    • Paste the wall application

    Warm up your home quicker and keep it cosier with Wallrock Thermal Liner

    Wallrock Thermal Liner starts saving you energy from the very moment your heating switches on. Wallrock Thermal Liner is a relatively thin insulation at almost  3mm thick but by applying it on the inside of your room it works to the maximum effect by reducing the ‘heat sink’ effect of the walls – in many cases cutting room warm up times in half. Once the room has warmed it goes on working just like any other insulation typically giving a 15% saving on a solid brick wall.

    Rooms warm up much quicker with Wallrock® Thermal Liner

    Wallrock Thermal Liner® helps you to protect your home from unhealthy condensation and mould growth.

    Condensation forms on walls when warm room air comes into contact with a cold surface such as a wall – especially the coldest parts such as corners and near to windows. Wallrock Thermal Liners combats this condensation by enabling wall surfaces to retain warmth at the surface, giving less time for condensation to form and linger on the breathable surface. Less condensation means less moisture that in turn promotes mould growth.

    Wallrock® Thermal Liner comes in a large 7.5m² roll

    Wallrock® Thermal Liner comes in a large 7.5m² roll.

     

    Wallrock Thermal Liner smooths out rough and cracked plaster.

    Wallrock Thermal liner is thick compared to most other wallcoverings at around 3mm so it transforms many rough, uneven surfaces, even lightly textured ones.

    Not only does Wallrock Thermal Liner cover and smooth the surface but it reinforces it too creating a long lasting and durable solution.

    For an improved surface finish cross line the surface with Wallrock Fibreliner as this will disguise the seams very effectively.

     

    Wallrock Thermal Liner is simple and straightforward to apply.

    Always apply Wallrock Thermal Liner with the correct adhesive, unsurprisingly it is called ‘Wallrock Thermal Liner Adhesive’ and is supplied in 5KG and 10 KG tubs. Visit: https://www.coveryourwall.co.uk/wallrock-thermal-liner.html 

    Apply the adhesive to the wall and the Wallrock Thermal liner itself can be applied directly from the roll to the wall and trimmed to size.

    Wallrock Thermal Liner is a tough material so be prepared with a sharp trimming knife of good quality wall paper shears.

      Wallrock Caulk King - has very high flexibility

      Wallrock Caulk King is water based and solvent free but has a very high polymer content developed to higher specification, unlike cheap caulks. This gives it excellent viscosity to facilitate easy application but also amazing flexibility giving it much improved resistance to cracking and splitting over time

       

      Wallrock Caulk King - apply once, save time and money!

      Even if you do manage to bridge gaps of up to 6mm with a cheap caulk you may well have to go back the next day because the caulk has already cracked and split. Not so with Wallrock Caulk King it will bridge gaps easily.

      Furthermore, so long as a good convex bead is applied it will have enough flexibility to resist cracking for years to come.

      Invest a little extra in Wallrock Caulk King and it will pay you back ten times over in saving time and inconvenience. Visit: https://www.coveryourwall.co.uk/caulk-king-wallrock-premium-filler-and-sealant.html

    Wallrock Caulk King is suitable for a myriad of applications, indoor and outdoor including window frames, architraves, cornices, PVC profiles, PVC cladding, brickwork, concrete, plaster and wood.

    It is worth noting that applying Caulk to the inside of a window or door frame is classed as an outside façade which requires an Exterior caulk.

    Wallrock Caulk King is so good it can even be used as an adhesive for bonding polystyrene in some light duty applications

    Unlike many cheap caulks Wallrock Caulk King is classed as an ISO 11600 Construction Sealant.

     

    Wallrock Caulk King – takes paint beautifully

     

    Many of us will have experienced the problem of paint blistering off newly sealed joints. So, its good news the Wallrock Caulk King compliments modern water based paints perfectly and needs no special preparation before painting.

  • Anaglypta Original – it’s come a long way since 1887

     

    Anaglypta, meaning ‘Raised (ana) Cameo (glypta)’ in Greek, has a history dating back to 1887, when Thomas Palmer took the opportunity he had spotted in the market that meant wallpaper could be available to the masses, not just the rich. Anaglypta Original is still made in a very similar way to when the brand was founded, over 130 years ago. Anaglypta is a brand that has been long renowned for the quality of the wallpapers they produce, with Anaglypta Original still being made using one of the oldest paper making methods known.

     

    Original Anaglypta

    Anaglypta Original is a group of pure paper products, made up from 2 layers of paper, with some of the oldest and original Anaglypta designs dating back to the launch of the brand. The Anaglypta Original range is made up of 18 products that all share the same characteristics;

     

    • Anaglypta Original disguises imperfections
    • Anaglypta Original allows walls to breathe
    • Anaglypta Original is an excellent surface for paint
    • Anaglypta Original contains no PVC
    • Anaglypta Original uses paper from well managed sources

     

    Iconic Anaglypta Original

    Anaglypta Original is possibly the most iconic of all Anaglypta wallpapers with its range of products from vintage style right through to contemporary designs; Anaglypta® Originals can often be seen in hotels and historic buildings, with their installation being as long as 100 years ago. One of the most amazing facts about Anaglypta, is just how well it withstands time and the elements; in 1905, a ship called Royal Stores used Anaglypta. Shortly after its installation, the ship sank off the coast of Newfoundland. When the ship was raised, a year later, the Anaglypta was still intact and unharmed.

  • Anaglypta Dado Panels – Easy to Hang Using Paste the Wall Technique

     

    Period style with modern techniques.

    Anaglypta Dado Panels are one of the oldest products available from Anaglypta, having been in production for over 130 years. Anaglypta Dado Panels give dramatic period style, whilst utilising modern paste the wall hanging techniques, meaning that anyone can give their home an authentic period look with ease. Originally produced in Supaglypta embossed paper, Anaglypta Dado Panels are now produced on a Paste the Wall paper, making them easier to hang, even for beginners. Anaglypta Dado Panels come in a variety of styles, from Nouveau to Oriental, Baroque to Rococo. Anaglypta Dado Panels are a great way to cover imperfections whilst adding textured warmth. Simply hang and paint your Anaglypta Dado Panels in your choice of colour.

    Hanging Anaglypta Dado Panels

    Hanging Anaglypta Dado Panels can seem daunting, however by following some very simple instructions, great results can be achieved

    1. If dado rails are not installed strike a straight line horizontally across the wall at the desired dado height
    2. Cut the desired number of panels
    3. Use a good quality adhesive suitable for heavy wallcoverings, we recommend Wallrock Power Adhesive
    4. Paste the wall to cover the same area as the desired number of panels you are hanging – as Anaglypta Dado Panels are paste the wall, you can hang as many in one go as you are comfortable with, meaning there will be less joints.
    5. Position the paper on the wall, aligning the top of the design with the horizontal line or under the dado rail. Ensure the Anaglypta Dado Panel is hung the correct way up, the bottom is purposefully made to be trimmed.
    6. Brush the paper down and out from the centre to the edges, ensuring that all air bubbles are removed.
    7. Trim off the excess at the skirting board.
    8. Remove any excess paste immediately with a damp sponge.
    9. Allow to dry then paint in your choice of colour.

    Anaglypta Dado Panels – Easy to Hang, Even on Stairs

    Anaglypta Dado Panels can also be hung up the stairs, so the period style can be continued throughout your home; when hanging on the stairs, it is recommended that the whole hanging project is started at the top of the stairs, on ‘Plumb A’ as shown in the following image – use a plumb line to make sure the panel is hung perfectly vertical.Anaglypta Dado Panels

    Cut off half of an Anaglypta Dado Panel, this should be about 32cm wide – trying to hang wider pieces than this on the stairs will not workAnaglypta Dado Panels

    Hang the panel, with the top left corner touching the dado rail or banister, with the right hand edge on the plumb line – this will mean that there is a triangular gap at the top, and a triangular piece to trim at the bottom. Simply trim it from the bottom and insert in the top, trimming away any excess from the dado rail or banister edge

  • Supaglypta by Anaglypta – Wallpaper like no other!

     

    • Traditional textile reinforced paper product with zero PVC
    • Design heritage
    • Strength and durability - resists cracks reappearing/hardwearing
    • Paintable/fashionable

     

    Supaglypta – where traditional manufacturing offers advantages for the homes of today …

    Supaglypta is a unique form of Anaglypta perfected in Darwen Lancashire towards the end of the 19th century. Supaglypta is still made using the same basic process as was perfected all those years ago, a process that is unique to the Supaglypta product.

    Two layers of paper are pressed and glued together in the embossing process but the unique ingredient is in the paper mix whereby to add further strength to the product the paper is reinforced with textile fibres which are premixed in the paper.

    All this makes embossing more difficult and a slower process but the result is a very strong, unique, textile reinforced Supaglypta wallpaper with the crisp design definition that cannot be replicated with cheaper, weaker, modern products that use PVC to form the pattern. Visit: https://www.coveryourwall.co.uk/wallpaper/anaglypta/supaglypta-wallpaper/

     

    Supaglypta – a Design Heritage stretching back over 100 years

    Once the manufacturing process had been perfected designs were introduced reflecting the best design trends of the time and some of these timeless patterns are still in production over 100 years later.

    All but one design has a male name and the story goes that the first designs were each named after a member of the original Supaglypta Development Team. The oldest surviving design is Supaglypta Spencer, dating back to 1903 and still a top seller.

    Other Supaglypta designs quickly followed such as Supaglypta Alfred in 1907

    Further designs were introduced later, ‘Inca’ in 1935 that echo’s the height of the Art Deco period followed by Richard and Frazer in 1951 symbolising the optimism of the post war period.

    Supaglypta – inner strength and outer beauty…

    As we have already seen, Supaglypta is not just two layers of embossed paper, the high quality paper also contains reinforcing textile fibres.

    The inclusion of textile fibres improves the tear resistance and ability to stretch of the paper by 100% giving Supaglypta inner strength as well as outer beauty.

    And it is useful strength too as the papers will actively reinforce tired cracked plaster whilst the crisp embossed designs does a superb job of disguising the defect – and you can have a high degree of confidence that active cracks will not reappear after just a few months.

    Not only that, Supaglypta allows walls to breathe unlike vinyl products that lock in moisture.

    Supaglypta, back on trend…

    A new appreciation of artisan products with a real tangible design heritage has seen demand for Supaglypta rocketing.

Whatever your colour scheme the beautiful timeless design of Supaglypta will add depth and interest…

     

     

  • Old fashioned Woodchip? – no thanks, New Anaglypta Woodchip – yes please!!!

     

    ‘Woodchip – no thanks’, you may say – well we say ‘think again’.

    Woodchip has become one of those words that has become synonymous with low quality cheap and cheerful product but as is so often the case the truth can be very different indeed – especially high quality; Anaglypta Paste the Wall, Woodchip.

    For a start its one of the most environmentally friendly wallpapers you can buy as it has a very large recycled paper content, uses sustainably sourced waste wood, contains no PVC and it allows your walls to breathe.

    It is extremely quick, easy and forgiving to hang

    It disguises defects very effectively and just as importantly it is wear resistant unlike many more expensive vinyl products.

    Anaglypta Paste the Wall Woodchip

    Heritage and Bauhaus roots

    Woodchip wallpaper has been around for the best part of 100 years and can trace its history back to Germany and the Bauhaus period following world war one. Woodchip suited the period well with a move to simpler plainer forms, in this case simple clean homogenous painted walls rather than elaborate decorated ones.

    By the 1930’s production sprang up in the UK to serve Bauhaus influenced trends and by the 1960’s dawned the Anaglypta Woodchip had become almost everyone’s favourite wallpaper, its high popularity lasting right through into the 1980’s -cheapened quality from unscrupulous competitors playing a big part in a declining reputation.

    This year Anaglypta Paste the Wall Woodchip is being relaunched with a new focus on a high quality user friendly product in a traditional texture to be followed by new designs with less traditional appearance – but all reminiscent of the original design ethos of good simple, elegant and attainable form.

    Anaglypta Paste the Wall Woodchip and environmental positives…

    As stated above it is one of the most environmentally friendly wallpapers you can buy as it has a very large recycled paper content, uses sustainably sourced waste wood, contains no PVC and it allows your walls to breathe.

    Perhaps equally importantly it brings a simple clean homogenous look to walls that are quite badly cracked and damaged saving costly work and materials at the outset and giving a finish that has legendary durability that will comfortably outlast Paintable Vinyl products

     Woodchip is back on trend

    Sixties and Seventies design classics are very much back on trend and’ Anaglypta Paste the Wall Woodchip’ is a great improvement on the original product whilst retaining its essential design elements. Visit: https://www.coveryourwall.co.uk/anaglypta-paste-the-wall-woodchip.html

    In fact Woodchip has never dropped out of popularity in Germany where its functional qualities, environmental credentials and Bauhaus heritage are appreciated.

     Anaglypta Paste the Wall Woodchip – practical solutions and infinite possibilities

    The versatility and sheer functionality of Anaglypta Paste the Wall Woodchip is ready to be discovered by a whole new generation.

    For the cost conscious it will bring new life to walls that would otherwise need re plastering but far beyond that is offers as a great product to bring colour and design to walls and ceilings

     What is better about Anaglypta Paste the Wall Woodchip ?

    Anaglypta Paste the Wall Woodchip is substantially heavier wallpaper than woodchip ever was - at 150 GSM it is naturally thicker and stronger anyway making it tolerant of uneven and damaged surfaces.

    On top of that it now contains textile fibres, which means it is not just stronger but that it is dimensionally stable. Because of this bubbling and poor seams are a thing of the past and you don’t have to use a paste table either – just paste the wall and roll on the Anaglypta paste the Wall Woodchip.

  • Anaglypta – time to think again about this iconic brand and style

     

    Anaglypta Heritage

    Anaglypta is a British Wallpaper Brand and also one of the worlds’ oldest, if not THE oldest wallpaper brand, formed in 1887 when Queen Victoria was on the throne. The brand name Anaglypta is derived from the Greek language, meaning ‘raised cameo’ . Anaglypta was the first paintable wallpaper where designs were actually physically pressed into the paper – the end result being a versatile hard wearing surface that can be painted any colour you wish.

    Today, the range remains almost exclusively paintable with finishes ranging from simply flat to a wide variety of relief designs, some of which can trace their lineage back over one hundred years.

    Anaglypta Wallpaper

    Anaglypta – back on trend

    Anaglypta had become a bit of a side show in the fashion stakes – often found painted magnolia and being used in dated designs.

    Today the versatility, design heritage and sheer functionality of Anaglypta is being discovered by a whole new generation as a great product to bring colour and design to walls and ceilings – with real tactile designs that offer real alternatives to print and at the same time have the versatility to enable colour changes time and time again.

    Anaglypta – superb, alternative wallpaper for your feature wall, a unique fusion of wallpaper designs and the boundless individuality of your personal colour choice…

    When thinking of wallpaper and feature walls we are generally encouraged to think about using printed wallpaper, much of it is also very ‘here today, gone tomorrow’ in the style stakes too and you are never 100% sure it is going to look as good you hoped...

    So give Anaglypta a chance? There are over 100 beautiful Anaglypta designs to choose from ranging from opulent authentic Heritage designs dating back to the inception of the Anaglypta brand in 1887 to modern, contemporary sleek textures.

    Once it is on simply paint it any colour that gives you just the level of impact you want. Whether you want to make a bold statement or something more subtle, Anaglypta offers you the infinite choices you only get by combining wallpaper and paint - and if you want a change then simply add a new colour to your Anaglypta. Visit: https://www.coveryourwall.co.uk/wallpaper/anaglypta/ 

     Don’t take our word for it

    Anaglypta has been noticed all over again as can be seen from Anaglypta articles, (not advertisements) in various publications including  Elle Decoration, Telegraph Magazine Design Notebook, House beautiful and Sunday Times Interiors.

    NB Can we insert a picture or article – suppose not?

    Anaglypta offer a range of different substrates too..

    Some Anaglypta designs called ‘Anaglypta Original’ unsurprisingly, and are still embossed into paper just like they were back in 1887 – they take a little more care in hanging but offer a superb hardwearing, breathable finish, entirely free of plastics

    Soon after that came ‘Supaglypta’ a similar product to the ‘Anaglypta original’ but reinforced with textile fibres for the ultimate combination of beauty and strength for the toughest of environments.

    Today many other designs have been replicated in the Anaglypta Luxury Vinyl and Anaglypta Popular ranges for those wanting heritage or contemporary style  using modern materials and techniques.

     A final point about Anaglypta

    It’s thick and its three dimensional so it is relatively tolerant of uneven surfaces and gives a beautiful homogenous look to a where a flat print would highlight every crack, pimple and imperfection.

  • Understanding wallpaper fire ratings for Wallrock Fibreliner, Wallrock Fireliner and Wallrock Thermal Liner and other ErfurtMAV products?

     

    Wallrock, Erfurt MAV Linings and Fire Ratings.

    The fire rating system in regard to all wallpapers including Lining Paper, Insulating Lining paper, Wallrock Fibreliner, Wallrock Fireliner and Wallrock Thermal Liner can be difficult to understand especially as the real world performance will always be affected by other materials, such as the wall itself, paint, adhesive, decorative wallpaper applied over the top and other nearby structures.

    Here we are trying to give a short concise overview of fire ratings and obviously for absolute accuracy and certainty you should always consult an expert in the field such as a Specifier, Trade Body or Testing Body.

    Whilst the last thing I want to do is give a false sense of security or give the impression the fire rating of your wallpaper is not very important - it is worth bearing in mind that having properly maintained and positioned smoke detectors in your home is arguably far more important than the fire rating of your wallcovering simply because we all inevitably have lots of other combustible and smoke generating products in our home.

    wallrock fibreliner premium

    When must wallpaper fire ratings be considered by UK Law?

    The simple answer is if your project is subject to Building Regulations 'Building Regs' and/or inspections by a Building Inspector, then the fire rating of the product must comply. In effect this means big projects such as a ‘new build’, extension, garage conversion, loft conversion, will all be subject to Building Regulations and the wallpaper must comply with requirements regarding the fire rating of the product. This is why our Wallrock fibreliner range, Wallrock fireliners and many other of our products are independently tested for compliance

    When is it purely down to me to decide?

    Smaller projects such as general home redecoration and makeovers are unlikely to be subject to building regulations (unless it is a public space, hotel, care home or similar where regulations may apply) so you do not legally need to consider the fire rating of the wallpaper you have chosen. However, you may well want to consider the fire rating of the wallpaper anyway, for example avoiding using less fire resistant wallpapers in fire escape routes.

    How can I find the fire rating of a wallpaper product?

    It may be on the label as a letter or number, on the manufacturers website, or you may have to ask the manufacturer. The manufacturer should be able to supply you with the actual test certificate. Wallrock products carry the fire rating clearly on the label for easy reference.

    OK, so why do some products have a letter as the fire rating and some a number?

    The short answer is, there are two overlapping test systems, either of which is acceptable for Building Regulations;

    • The British Standard (BS 476) categorises products by numbers 0 to 4 (0 being the least flammable and 4 the most)
    • The European Standard (EN 13501) categorises products by letters A to F (0 being the least flammable and in theory F being the most *)

     

    The chart below shows how the two systems overlap:

    British Standard Classification European Standard Classification
    Not Applicable A
    0 B
    1 & 2 C
    3 D
    4 E
    Unclassifiable F

     

    NB; Wallrock Fireliner is tested to the British standard as it is marketed solely in the UK and Wallrock Fibreliner to the European standard as the product is sold throughout Europe. Although both products perform very well under test conditions the Wallrock Fireliner has a far superior fire resistance as it does not burn even in free air a situation which most wallcoverings would burn readily.

    OK, I get that but is all wallpaper tested before being sold to consumers and why the disclaimer * when talking about the EN system?

    In the introduction we mentioned that the average home contains lots of combustible materials in much higher quantities than the wallpaper applied to walls. So under the European system there appears to be a a tacit recognition of this and therefore  most wallpapers under 1.8 mm thick can be classified as a ‘D’ without testing them.

    So a wallpaper classified as a D may actually perform better (or theoretically worse) if it was subjected to a fire test . Similarly if a product is thicker than 1.8 mm it can be classified as an ‘F’ without testing.

    Products with a European rating have other lower case letters and numbers written after the letter – Do they mean anything?

    Yes they do. Let’s take Wallrock Fibreliner Original say you have B-s1,d0

    B is the resistance to fire, in this case very good (as shown in the earlier chart)

    S1 is the amount of smoke generated, 1 would be best, 3 the worst

    d0 is the relative amount of flaming particles falling , 0 is best, 2 the worst

    Additional classes for smoke development Additional classes for burning droplets
    s1 the structural element may emit a very limited amount of combustion gases d0 burning droplets or particles must not be emitted from the structural element
    s2 the structural element may emit a limited amount of combustion gases d1 burning droplets or particles may be released in limited quantities
    s3 no requirement for restricted production of combustion gases d2 no requirement for restriction of burning droplets and particles

     

    In this regard the European system is useful as you may have a product that resists fire but gives off a lot of smoke in a real home fire and we all know it can often be the smoke that is the real killer rather than the fire itself. Products with plastic coatings are often particularly bad for this.

    OK, so what do Building Regulations say I need?

    That depends on where exactly you will use the wallcovering. The chart included here shows how different rated wallcoverings can be used in projects subject to Building Regulations:

    Location BS Class European Class
    Small rooms of an area not more than;
    a) 4m2 in residential accommodation
    b) 30m2 in non-residential accommodation
    2 D-s3,d2
    Other rooms (including garages 1 C-s3,d2
    Circulation spaces in dwellings 1 C-s3,d2
    Other circulation spaces, including the common areas in blocks of flats 0 B-s3,d2

     

    As you can see Wallrock Fibreliner Original easily conforms to Building regulations

    How can wallpaper have any fire resistance anyway?

    When a pure paper is adhered to a non-combustible surface it does not necessarily burn easily because it is not in ‘free air’. Similarly some plastic coated wallpapers, such as PVC coverings, do not necessarily combust easily (but give off smoke).

    We recognise that you may not want to use a product regardless of test results that will burn readily in free air so we offer a wallpaper that resists combustion even in free air and can actually be used to offer some protection to more vulnerable surfaces called Wallrock Fireliner

    How is a test conducted and under what conditions?

    A test looks to replicate real world conditions so the paper is applied to a non-combustible surface with a typical adhesive (which will be described in the test) as it would be in a typical home. If it is a paintable wallcovering then you would expect the test to show two coats of emulsion paint had been applied simply because this is typically what would happen in the real world. The test essentially consists of directing a naked flame at the surface and measuring flame spread over a period of 10 minutes. The wider the flames spread outwards in that time the lower the rating. The test is repeated several times and the worst results used to rate the product. Please see the chart here:

    Flame spread at 1.5 min (mm) Final flame spread (mm)
    Class 1 165 (+25) 165 (+25)
    Class 2 215 (+25) 455 (+45)
    Class 3 265 (+25) 710 (+75)
    Class 4 Exceeding Class 3 limits.

     

    It is worth bearing in mind the test is always going to be ‘indicative’ as there are variables to consider;

    • The type of adhesive used to apply the product could make a small or potentially big difference in extreme cases e.g. our Wallrock Thermal FR Adhesive contains active ingredients that help to resist flame spread.
    • Product manufacturing variables
    • In the case of paintable wallcoverings – what brand of paint has been used.

     

    The product I want is E rated, can I use it?

    First, if Building Regulations apply – almost definitely not**

    Second, if they don’t apply you can use it but we would advise you consider the area it is being used e.g. is it a fire escape route?

     

    So why the ** above?

    The product may be able to be used as part of a system that improves the fire rating significantly, as below.

     

    Can a Fire Rating be Improved?

    The short answer is 'yes, it can'.

    Take these products for example, Red Label Heatsaver, Red Label Insulating Lining Paper, Insulating Lining Paper Graphite + and Wallrock Thermal Liner all have lowly rating of E  or F even though the bonded lining alone has a far superior rating on its own.

    As there are so many variables as to how this product may be used we declare it as an E or an  F - worst case scenario.

    However, when the products are applied with Wallrock Thermal FR Adhesive and covered with Wallrock Fireliner lining paper with two coats of emulsion they achieve much better test results e.g. BS Class 1 which is Building Regulations compliant for residences.

    I hope this helps clear up a few questions.

  • Woodchip - a desirable wallpaper

    Woodchip and its legacy

    Woodchip wallpaper or woodchip lining paper – both names are used interchangeably – is liked and loathed in equal measures. Putting design preferences aside for a moment, woodchip has been known to make grown men cry because it can be very difficult to remove. This is especially true when the woodchip has been on the walls since the 70s and painted over many times. Because of this, woodchip gets a bad name as a horrible liner to use, which isn't necessarily true.

    Design pattern

    However, as a design pattern, woodchip is still liked by many as it offers a neutral finish, which provides a slight texture without standing out. So, how do you get a similar textured finish without setting yourself up for a lot of work later on? Use Anaglypta wallpapers!

    Woodchip alternative

    Anaglypta wallpapers are well known and liked and are easy to remove as there are no actual wood chips that provide the textured design - the texture is achieved by embossing the paper or by using blown vinyl. With a bit of imaginative paint colour these wallpapers can provide a finish which is quite timeless yet not boring. Below is a selection of 3 Anaglyptas that can offer a similar finish to woodchip wallpaper. Anaglypta Original Holkam RD388, Anaglypta Original Shelburne RD169 and Anaglypta Armadillo Kingfisher RD5302. The last wallpaper is paste-the-wall type, which makes the job of hanging it much easier and faster.

  • Buying Anaglypta wallpaper? Read this first

    Selling Anaglypta wallpapers every day we see that customers very often underestimate how many rolls they need to buy. 10m2 of wall coverage doesn’t always translate into 10m2 of wallpaper you need to buy. Adding extra coverage for pattern repeat (doesn’t apply to all wallpapers) and wastage will save you the hassle and potentially extra costs later on. Consider a situation where, say, 5 years down the line you need a single roll of the same pattern and it’s no longer available.

    Across 100s of orders, we’ve noticed that some customers buy X number of wallpaper rolls and then follow with another order a few days or weeks later just for a single roll. This clearly points to the issue of underestimating of the actual wallpaper needed for the job.

     

    Pattern repeat and wastage

    When measuring the wallpaper coverage and buying Anaglypta wallpapers you have to take into consideration pattern repeat. Pattern repeat is simply the vertical distance on the wallpaper between where the pattern starts and finishes. In other words, where the pattern becomes identical again. Some pattern repeats are very short e.g. 1.9cm for Anaglypta Original Churhill RD385 or quite large for Dandelion Blush RD80005 where the pattern repeat is 64cm.

    This means that when hanging the wallpaper you may end up losing the entire length of the pattern repeat on each drop – it doesn’t always work out like this and it depends on the actual structure of the pattern and the length of each drop. It’s best to count the number of drops and then add the length of the pattern repeat for each drop.

    When hanging any wallcovering, wastage will inevitably occur. Most often it’s in the form of the excess you need to leave on each end of the drop before trimming it to size. Sometimes you just make a mistake and cut it too short - remember, measure twice and cut once – which will result in this piece of the wallpaper going to waste.

     

    Planning for the future

    We receive quite a lot of emails from customers who search for Anaglypta patterns they have had on their walls for a number of years and either need to replace part of the wallpaper or would like to extend the same pattern onto another wall, but can’t find the wallpaper. Typically the emails end with ‘I wish I had thought about it then’…

    Although most Anaglypta patterns have been available since they were first introduced, some have been discontinued. So, it would be prudent to buy an extra roll when making the initial purchase and put it away completely so that it be used some years later when needed.

  • Discontinued Anaglypta Wallpapers

    What Anaglypta wallpapers have been discontinued?

    We aren't going to list all of the discontinued Anaglypta wallpapers that have been created and subsequently discontinued because Anaglypta brand has been in existence since 1887. We are going to list the Anaglypta designs that have been dropped in recent years. Please get in touch with us if you are looking for a specific design and can't find it. There may be a close match in existence and we'll be more than happy to confirm it with the Anaglypta manufacturer.

    Dado Panels have been slightly changed to make it easier to apply along staircases. It's worth noting that Dado Panels are now made as Vinyl wallpapers (and have been for quite a few years). Before that they were made as embossed wallpapers. If you are matching an existing design, it's worth checking which one you currently have.

  • Wide lining paper

    Is there such a thing as extra wide lining paper?

    Yes and no. It's almost impossible to buy traditional lining paper, which is wider than the standard 56 cm. From time to time one of the main manufacturers will produce wider rolls of lining paper, but soon it proves very unpopular with customers - especially professional decorators. On paper (excuse the pun) wider lining paper sounds great. You'd be able to cover more walls quicker and you'd have less seams to worry about. This is where the pros end and cons start. There are no wide enough pasting tables. It's quite a difficult job to paste a wide lining paper, say 75 cm wide, on a 56cm wide pasting table. It's not impossible and doable when you have a wall or two to do and have plenty of time (plus patience), but this isn't a way to do it when you have 4 rooms to line and you are paid for the finished job not the time you spend on it. Another thing to remember is that, as you most likely know, lining paper (or any paper for that matter) will expand when wet. This will be even more pronounced with a wider lining paper leading to potentially bigger gaps at the seams when the paper dries.

    So, is there no wide lining paper at all? There is, but it's called Wallrock Fibreliner. It's not really lining paper, but it performs the same function. It covers imperfections and prepares walls for painting or hanging wallpaper - please remember that the walls need to be prepared in the same fashion as in case of hanging lining paper. It's much stronger, which makes it ideal in situations where traditional lining paper may tear. And most importantly it's available in wide rolls. In fact you can have it at 55, 75 cm and the extra wide 100 cm. Because Wallrock Fibreliners are past-the-wall type of wallcoverings you don't need a pasting table! There's no need to worry about Wallrock Fibreliner shrinking and leaving nasty gaps at the seams as it's dimensionally stable. Although Wallrock Fibreliners are dimensionally stable, walls always move and this may result in tiny, hairline gaps appearing - this will largely depend on your property.

    Finish on Wallrock Fibreliner

    Wallrock Fibreliner gives you a choice of different finishes whereas lining paper only offers one standard finish. You can choose from the standard Wallrock Fibrliner, Wallrock Fibrliner Plus and Wallrock Fibreliner Premium. The premium helps to achieve plaster-like finish where the standard Wallrock Fibreliner is more in line with your traditional lining paper with Wallrock Fibreliner Plus being in-between the two.

    Now you can really get a wide liner, which will make the job much faster and easier.

  • Wallrock Thermal Liner and Condensation in a Bathroom

    Will Wallrock Thermal Liners stop condensation in my bathroom?

    Moisture

    The amount of steam that is generated in the bathroom or especially in the shower, over a period of short time, is the main point for concern here. The steam goes up against the ceiling and sets on the walls very quickly. Because there’s so much moisture condensed in the air there’s very little you can do to extract it on the spot unless you install a 6ft extractor fan (might look good, but would be a bit blowy). However, active and efficient ventilation is absolutely key here as over time moisture will create further issues such as mould.

    Can Wallrock Thermal Liner help? It certainly can as far as separation of the warm air from the cold walls goes, but the moisture is most likely going to set on it if you don’t have proper ventilation working at the time.

    Temperature difference

    Perhaps this is going to state the obvious, but condensation is caused by lack of sufficient ventilation and / or differences in temperatures between the warm air in the room and cold surface it comes into contact with. Obviously, this is exacerbated in a bathroom or especially shower. Wallrock Thermal Liner will work very well in this case by providing a barrier between the cold walls / ceiling and the warm air, but it won’t stop the excessive moisture being present in the air. So, if the moisture isn’t removed by a means of ventilation the issue may not be fully resolved. However, you’ll most likely create a much warmer bathroom.
