symbol-01

Spongeable

Either printed with water-fast colours or thinly coated with PVA.
Paste on the surface can be safely removed by gentle use of a
damp sponge.

symbol-17

As spongeable but with more protection.
Will withstand more wiping after light soiling.

As spongeable but well protected with PVA.
Suitable for wet areas such as bathrooms and kitchens.

symbol-13

Scrubable

Normally only applies to vinyl wallcoverings used in areas with heavy
wear.

symbol-05

Good Light Fastness

This means that the wallcovering should retain its original colour for a
considerable amount of time, but can’t be guaranteed on any permanent
basis.

symbol-06

Moderate Light Fastness

Beware!! This product may well fade or discolour in areas of direct
sunlight.

symbol-02

This needs to be pasted as this is not a ready pasted or paste-the-wall
product.

symbol-11

Ready Pasted

To be hung by immersion in clean water according to instructions.

symbol-09

Paste the Wall

Always check the type of adhesive and the method of application.

symbol-15

Strippable

Should peel cleanly from the wall in a dry state

symbol-18

Wet Removable

This will not dry-peel.

symbol-08

Overlap & Double Cut

Where edges cannot (or should not) be butt-jointed in the usual way,
they are lapped and the two thicknesses sliced through, usually with
straight edge and knife. The subsequent two strips of waste are pulled
away leaving two edges to stick down as a perfect butt joint. Often
applies to contract materials and thicker

symbol-10

Peelable

The top skin of the decoration should peel cleanly away, leaving
the backing (if still secure) ready for further decoration.

symbol-07

Offset Match

This is sometimes called a Half Drop – the match is obtained by halving the repeat.

symbol-14

Straight Match

The pattern matches straight across the width.

symbol-04

Free Match

No matching required; lengths can be cut straight from the roll
without wastage.

symbol-03

Direction of Hanging

This can be found (but rarely), on the shelvedge of wallcoverings that
have been untrimmed or it may be on the reverse of some products.
In other respects, on a label it will mean don’t reverse the lengths.

symbol-12

Reverse Alternative Layout

Mostly applicable to plain effects and necessary to minimise the
risk of side to side shading.
