Physio Supplies Canada offers a large selection of chart titles for various fields and specialties. Several of these charts are available with different types of finishes including lamination. Below we offer a description of the differences between the lamination types:
Heavy Paper – The most economical option, this is the plain paper stock which the chart is printed on. This finish is ideal for framing, plaque mounting or any other custom mounting option. Without any protection or seal against the elements this finish can be subject to damage and premature aging of the paper material.
Thin Lamination – The most popular finish, this takes the heavy paper chart and seals it in the thin protective layer of lamination plastic. This finish is durable enough to survive years on a wall, allow use of a dry erase maker and flexible enough to be rolled in a mailing tube. This finish has two metal eyelets in the top corners ideal for quick and easy hanging options.
Thick Lamination – The most durable option this chart is ideal for high volume clinics and facilities where durability may be a concern. The heavy paper chart is covered in a thick layer of lamination, heavy enough that it cannot be rolled or folded. This finish has two metal eyelets in the top corners ideal for quick and easy hanging options.
