For suitability and the best care of your liners, please read the following guidelines…
All of our PVC liners are intended to protect surfaces.
Liners may be used:
- In the home, office or workshop environment. For indoor use only.
- In environments where they might be expected to be in contact with grease, oil, light moisture, mud, food or drink. For example, greasy bottles or oily tools on shelves, damp or muddy shoes on shoe racks, sticky jars or food spillages in kitchen cupboards, cans and bottles in a bathroom cupboard, etc.
To care for your liner:
- To clean your liner, use a damp cloth and a light detergent such as washing up liquid.
- If you wish to trim or shape your liner, this may be done using a sharp knife.
Please protect your liners from:
- Direct heat. For example, excessively hot dishes removed directly from the oven might damage the surface of the liner.
- Prolonged direct contact with bleaches, strong detergents or other corrosive liquids. For example, prolonged contact with a leaking bottle or spillage containing corrosive liquids may damage the liner. If contact does occur, please clean the liner thoroughly.
- Prolonged immersion in water. Liners are wipe-clean and may be immersed in water for washing only. Dry thoroughly.
- Our PVC matting does not pick up stains easily, but certain products with strong colours or which are corrosive in nature, such as food colouring or bleaches, might leave marks.
Our cork liners are intended to protect surfaces.
Cork liners may be used:
- Around the home or in office environments which are free from moisture, such as bedrooms, dining rooms, offices and dry areas of the kitchen. For domestic indoor use only.
- In the protection of surfaces from the storage of dry, non-abrasive items, ideally in drawers, cupboard bases or on shelves. For example, in the storage of crockery, pots and pans, glass-wear, cutlery, clothing etc.
Cork liners are not suitable for certain environments:
- Although cork is naturally durable, this liner may become scratched, scraped or torn if exposed to abrasion or rough use. Where a strong or tough liner is required for heavy use, such as in boot rooms, garages or workshops, our PVC liner may be more suitable.
- This cork matting is not moisture resistant and is not suitable for environments where it may come into contact with water, oil, grease, food or other liquid spillages. Where moisture resistant matting is required, our PVC liner may be more suitable.
- Cork matting is therefore not recommended for use in workshops, garages, on shoe racks, in areas of the kitchen where it may come into contact with food or liquid, or in other heavy-wear environments.
To care for your cork liner:
- To clean your liner, use a lightly damp cloth and light detergent, such as washing up liquid. Be careful not to let too much moistere come into contact with the liner. Dry with a clean cloth.
- If you wish to trim your liner, this may be done using a sharp knife.
- Cork will be delivered rolled. Upon opening, lay matting out and allow 24hrs for the product to relax and lay flat.
Please protect your liners from:
- Direct heat. Although cork is naturally heat resistant, excessively hot items placed onto the liner might damage the adhesive in the matting.
- Contact with moisture. For example, water, oil, grease, cleaning products and food or liquid spillages. Moisture may damage the structure of the cork liner, causing expansion, and might cause staining.
- Abrasion and rough use. Do not fold the liner. Although cork is naturally durable, the liner may tear if not treated with care. Similarly, it may be scratched or scraped if exposed to abrasion or rough use.
