Manufacturer Located to Assemble Tile Sheets

prototype cork tile discs beside production ceramic tile discs

We have sourced a Vancouver, BC tile manufacturer that has the capacity to assemble sheets of cork tiles similar to the test sample you see here.

These prototype discs were manually cut with a sharp kitchen knife and glued to drywall patching mesh with a hot glue gun. They were sanded with an orbital sander and sealed with 2 coats of urethane.

They were cut to the same thickness as the white production run ceramic tiles you see in the background. Coincidentally, they are also nearly the same diameter and spacing, suggesting that these could be combined nicely.

With the ability to assemble these mesh-backed sheets of cork ’tiles’, our current stumbling block is the cutting process. As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, if you have suggestions for a suitable method of cutting these discs, we’d love to hear from you!
