Wallcoverings Industry Offers Free Sample Book

The Wallcoverings Association has created a new handy and easy-to-use educational piece to help specifiers and students learn more about wallcoverings.

When should you specify a Type II wallcovering versus a Type III? What’s the difference between Osnaburg and non-woven backing? How can you distinguish a mylar from a foil wallpaper? The design community asked their questions and the Wallcoverings Association has answered with a new handy and easy-to-use educational piece.

WallcoveringTo help specifiers and students learn more about wallcoverings, the Wallcoverings Association and its members have developed a tri-fold sample book that includes samples of various materials, information on available backings, and suggestions for common applications. These are available free of charge to interior design professionals, students, and others who specify wallcoverings for their facilities.

The Sample Book showcases every major type of wallcovering including vinyls, natural materials, textiles, wallpapers, dry erase, acoustical, fiberglass, and glass beads. Backings such as Osnaburg, non-woven, scrim, drill and paper are featured, along with explanations for when they are used.
