Which board surface best suits my needs?


Our boards are available in a variety of different writing surfaces to suit various applications and frequency of use. It’s important to choose the correct surface for your task in order to meet your expectations.

Glass Whiteboards are constructed with tempered glass making them 8 times stronger than standard glass. This surface is extremely stain resistant and consequently recommended for heavy use. Due to the durability of this surface these boards come with a lifetime warranty. Their reflective surface makes them not suitable for use with projectors and not ideal for rooms with low, bright lights.

Porcelain boards have a vitreous enamel surface which is highly scratch and stain resistant. Their matte surface makes them excellent for use with projectors and gives them great readability. These boards are recommended for heavy writing use and are ideal for schools, higher education facilities, conference centres, and meeting rooms.

Standard Commercial boards are constructed with multiple layers of painted steel with a baked on white top coat. These surfaces are not as hard as a vitreous enamel finish and therefore may be scratched, and are more likely to stain if ink is left on for long periods. They are a much better quality product than budget melamine whiteboards however, and so are backed with an 8 year warranty. These boards are recommended for moderate use applications.

Projection Porcelain boards are also vitreous enamel but this surface is also embedded with mica crystals to assist in even better viewing when used with projectors. The surface is a matte finish and requires a wet wipe for clean up. As such, these boards are recommended for circumstances where they will be used at least 80% of the time for projection and only 20% for writing use.
