  • Q&A With The Design Studio: Backer Board


    Q: What is a backer board and why do I have to use it with my Way Basics furniture?

    A: The white backer board included with all Way Basics furniture is the essential framing piece that holds everything together.  It’s kinda like the legs to a tripod—if you take away one leg, it’s not quite as sturdy.  How about this analogy: It’s kinda like the bread to a PB & J sandwich—all the ingredients are delicious, but the bread is what brings it all together to make it functional.  Without the bread, what do you have?  A mess! 

    The backer board is designed to adhere neatly, stabilize your furniture and create a finished look.  Mmm tasty!

    Q: What about the stuff in your Design Gallery?  Some of that stuff doesn’t have a backer board!  

    A: There are ways to get around the use of the backer board.  Take for instance the photo shown on the left.  This is one of the possibilities available with the Tribeca.  The reason why this works without the backer board is due to the Divider Boards which are placed perpendicular to the front of the structure.  The structure is more rigid with the boards in this configuration and necessary to preserve the life of the product. 

    If you chose to have neither the backer board nor the perpendicular Divider Boards, you may find it similar to eating your PB & J sandwich without the bread!
