Burlap Panels

Homasote Burlap Panels are composed of an all-natural, heavyweight jute fabric laminated to a nominal 1/2" structural Homasote® fiberboard. Decorative, tackable Burlap Panels are used in both residential and commercial construction as a finished paneling in its natural state or can be painted to adapt to any color or decor. They're ideal for a range of applications from family rooms and children's bedrooms, to school rooms and business offices - anywhere the rich look of natural fabric with the bonus of a fully tackable surface would be appreciated. The fabric is wrapped around the long edges only.

Material Composition Burlap paneling is composed of three basic elements: burlap, bonded to substrate (Homasote Structural Building Board) with a non-toxic, non-VOC adhesive. The substrate is a homogeneous composition, treated for resistance to moisture, protection against termites, rot and fungus and compressed into high density, structural panels.
