Premium map rail or cork display rails have molded aluminum rails with a tack surface that is made from Plas-Cork™, a heavy-duty, 1/4" thick plasticized cork material with color pigment all the way the through to the burlap fabric back support. The Plas-cork material is thicker than the natural tan cork materials used in inferior units sold elsewhere.
Tape and thumbtacks can ruin your paint jobs and your drywall. Cork display rails and map rails can stop the damage. In addition, cork display rails are the perfect answer when you don't want to cover an entire wall with cork but need a way to display something.
Remember that on some styles we offer lengths up to 12' long but only sections up to 8' long will ship by UPS. Longer sections will ship by truck. To save shipping cost you can abut smaller sections up close to each other to get the length you need. 1"and 2" such as flag holders, map winders, clip hooks and end caps are all sold separately.
Another very popular product are the imported tack-less paper hangers. This may be a safer alternative to traditional map rail because you don't have to use any thumbtacks that can end up on the floor or in small hands. The holder works with a unique nylon roller system that holds the paper or notice in place using gravity and natural tension instead.
