The idea is simple!
We use Styrofoam for all plain boards. This is a very high density type of foam board that is virtually indestructible provided you don’t run over it in the car or let the cats at it. Other than that, once you have a set, you are unlikely to ever need to buy plain boards from us again!
River/stream and Coastline tiles are 10mm styrofaom with 10mm polystyrene overlay to form the feature.
Why is more expensive that the other tile systems? Because Styrofoam is 4 times the price of polystyrene! Plus, we don’t believe that you will need any more plain tiles from us, unless you really abuse those you have.
What is the packing value? Basically, anything that is over a PV of 1, will only fit into a 2′ x 2′ box. This will allow a packing value of 16 to fill the box.
For our normal 2′ x 1′ box, a PV of 8 will fill the box. but nothing over a PV of 1 will fit.
Bear with us while we work these values out and, if the P+P seems a bit high – then give us a call.
