At ErfurtMAV, we constantly strive to deliver the best quality products; Our highly regarded Professional Lining base material has historically been sourced from Finnish forests. Unfortunately this source has announced it closure and as a result we have now developed our own techinically excellent base material, with higher tear resistance which will be substituted for the Finnish stock as supplies reduce. Optically, the new formula paper is very similar, but to guarantee consistent results, we recommend rolls are not interchanged during a project.

Labels of this lining paper will include a 'New Formula' icon in the top left corner.

Our ERFURTmav Professional linings are the brand of choice for many professional decorators throughout the UK. Carefully selected long fibre, pure paper pulp is used to produce paper with excellent tensile strength and easy cutting characteristics, even when soaked.

So what makes it ‘pure’? Quite simply it’s made from pure pulp, sourced from carefully managed forests accredited by either FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) or PEFC (Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification*).

The heavier the grade of lining the more effectively it will cover and smooth out defects.

For the ultimate coverage on badly damaged plaster or textured surfaces we recommend our ‘back to flat’ products: Wallrock Fibreliner, Wallrock R300 Liner and Wallrock Thermal Liner, or try our Insulating Lining Paper.

Exclusively produced to create a smooth finish on walls and ceilings.

For 1000 Grade Professional Lining Paper

Recommended paste - Dry flake or good quality ready mixed.


  1. Cut all lengths required allowing extra for trim at each end.
  2. Draw a straight pencil line or use a plumb line for applying first length.
  3. Paste liberally to each length making sure all edges have been covered. Fold each length paste to paste and soak until pliable, normally 8-10 minutes.
  4. Apply first length along guide line and smooth out with a wallpaper brush.
  5. Butt join all subsequent lengths and avoid overlapping.
  6. Allow paper to dry thoroughly before decorating with wallpaper or emulsion paint.

This is a simple wallpaper calculator and should be used as a guide only. You can find the roll width and roll length you are after on the specific product page.
Roll widths are provided in meters (such as 0.5 x 10mtr) so your wall widths and heights should be inputted in meters also.
If you are purchasing an offset match product then you may need a little extra as there may be some waste. If you have any windows or doors in your walls you can simply ignore these. This will give a good estimate of required roll numbers.
