The MapaWall world map
What are the dimensions of a MapaWall?

At the moment we have two sizes world maps; the regular MapaWall and the MapaWall XL

-The regular MapaWall world maps have a width of 7 ft 0,25 inch (214 cm) and a height of 3 ft 10,06 inch (117 cm). The unique magnetic mount system makes it possible to move the individual continents for precision placement. The thickness of the MapaWall world map is about 0.39 inch (10 mm).

-The MapaWall XL world maps have a width of 9 ft 4,2 inch (285 cm) and a height of 5 ft 2,99 inch (160 cm). The unique magnetic mount system makes it possible to move the individual continents for precision placement. The thickness of the MapaWall world map is about 0.39 inch (10 mm).

By the end of June ’22 we will introduce the wooden MapaWall Mini. This relatively small world map will have a width of 4 ft 11,06 inch (150 cm) and a height of 2 ft 8,28 inch (82 cm).

In what way is the MapaWall attached to the wall?

Putting up a MapaWall world map is child’s play. Every MapaWall comes with a template on which the MapaWall is shown in actual size. You only need to find a suitable spot for your MapaWall and attach the template. To attach the continents, you need to drill seven holes. These can be drilled directly through the template. So no need for marking these points first. The islands are attached using a special gel.

On the template you will find both an English and a Dutch manual including a packing list. In the package there’s a Tips & Tricks sheet as well. This sheet contains useful information about the installation.

On our installation page you can find several timelapse movies made by our clients. These will give you a good idea on how easy the installation process is. You can also find more of these timelapse movies on our Instagram page.

Is there a shop to view the MapaWall maps?

You can view various MapaWall maps at our office/showroom in Haarlem. If you plan on visiting us, please make an appointment first. Our contact details can be found on our contact page.

Do you make customs maps?

Indeed, we do. In the last few years we did several custom projects. Illuminated maps, different projection world maps and large islands are just a few of the projects we did for both small companies and corporates. Some of these projects are displayed on our Instagram page.

Sustainability
Are MapaWalls made of sustainable wood?

The majority of our MapaWall world wall maps are made from wood or wood products, including high quality veneers and PEFC wood. We are very thankful to mother nature for providing us with the resources for this beautiful product.

Because we at MapaWall believe that businesses should be run sustainably, we donate 10 dollars to The Nature Conservancy “Plant a Billion Trees” project where 1 dollar equates to 1 tree planted for every map sold.

How do the Nature Conservancy donations work?

With the sale of each map we donate 10 dollars to the project Plant a Billion Trees of the Nature conservancy. 10 Trees can be planted for this amount. You may decide in which region (Brazil, China or the United States of America) the trees are planted.

If you make an extra donation and give us permission, you will be mentioned on our MapaWall of Fame. For more information, go to our compensation page.
