Beadboard

Another valued product from Kerfkore Company.

Beadboard panels are available in a variety of thickness either with or without a veneer face. Plain Beadboard is made from an MDF core with standard bead spacing of 1 1/2” on center. Other bead spacing is available upon request. Wood veneer faced Beadboard consists of a veneer face applied to MDF core. Veneer faces and panel thickness options are available.

Plain Beadboard is designed to be painted. It is suggested that all panels receive a prime coat before the top coat is applied. A light sanding between coats with a medium to fine sandpaper is recommended. It is best to do this before panels have been installed. Beadboard is also available with a prime coat applied at the factory.

Wood veneer Beadboard is ready for finishing. However it is recommended that the panels be lightly sanded with 180 grit paper to remove any raised grain due to moisture pick-up. Application of stain, sealer and clear top coat is recommended with sanding between coats using 220 grit sandpaper. Wood veneer is a natural product and may accept stain differently depending on the wood grain characteristics. Therefore it is recommended that a small sample be completely finished to evaluate the final results.

Beadboard is normally produced using a high quality MDF core. Optional cores such as veneer core, FR core, NAUF core and MR core products may also be available. Many veneer face options are available in addition to the ones listed.

For wall use as wanes coating the wall should be uniform and plumb. Beadboard can be applied over sheetrock, paneling or other flat surfaces. Beadboard can also be attached to wood stud walls provided they are straight and uniform.

Beadboard can be attached to the wall with nails or construction grade adhesives. When using nails be sure to identify stud locations and nail into both vertical and horizontal studs.

Beadboard panels are available in a 4'X8' size with 1 1/2" standard groove spacing. Optional groove spacing sizes are available.

TESTIMONIALMore
“The Kerfkore Foamkore product was the perfect material for the art piece I wanted to create. I needed something that had a physically and visually substantial structure, while being lightweight at the same time and this material had it all. The people at Kerfkore were extremely helpful and excited to help me achieve my vision, working with me to choose the product that would best suit my needs and to have the sheets cut to my particular specifications. Not only was the material's structure perfect, it did not require heavy duty jointing or extra reinforcements; I found that the joints in my sculptures adhered very well with a strong wood glue alone! Once my sculptures were complete, I was able to move them, place them and interact with them in the various environments I chose without any problem - instead of worrying about my sculptures breaking, I needed only to worry whether they would fit in my vehicle. I am really happy to have found and worked with this company ... they were a huge part of my success in this project.”
