Magnetic Boards & Magnetic Galvanised Steel Sheet
Perfect for notice boards, crafting and DIY, our sturdy, galvanised magnetic steel sheet comes in a huge range of sizes. As it’s made from galvanised steel, it’s equipped to weather the elements, making it a great choice for sheds, garages and outdoor projects, as well as interior design. This sheeting is hugely popular for those seeking a large surface on which they can display documents, pictures or even decorative magnets. When it comes to using magnetic board for DIY, the internet is full of inspirational craft and interiors ideas. If you can’t see the size you’re looking for in the box above, just let us know; we’re always happy to cut metal to size – and there’s no minimum order, so your magnetic notice board can be just the size you want. Our magnetic galvanised steel sheet is 1.0 mm thick / 19 SWG (steel wire gauge) thick. This product isn’t magnetic itself, so it won’t pick up metal objects, but it is just the right surface for attracting magnets, much like the front of your fridge. Whether you’re looking to keep your bills in order, display your precious photographs or give your living room an industrial edge, the opportunities for magnetic boards are endless.
How it’s made: Galvanised steel is made when steel is fortified with a powerful layer of zinc. The metal is dipped in an extremely hot bath of molten zinc, which causes a chemical reaction, resulting in a protective layer of zinc which makes the finished product supremely tough. Whilst the zinc that’s added to steel in the galvanisation process is not magnetic, the steel itself is. The amount of zinc used is so little that it doesn’t affect the performance of the steel, meaning magnets will stick to it.
Good for: Notice boards, photography displays, shop displays, interiors or anywhere else where a surface that attracts magnets is required.
Painting: galvanised steel can be coated in paint, but make sure you use a specialist product and primer.

What our customers say about us:
“Even though the original order arrived damaged the service was fantastic. It was corrected and the new pieces delivered in double quick time. The delivery man was very helpful in moving the heavy pallet for me. I e-mailed a question about the metal galvanisation and I was called back almost instantly with an answer. I was very impressed by the service I received and would fully recommend them.” – Stuart, Trustpilot, December 2015.
