Sundeala Noticeboards Alternative - Make Way For Polycolour FR®


Sundeala Noticeboards Alternative - Make Way For Polycolour FR®


What is Polycolour FR®?

If you are looking for an alternative to the popular Sundeala Noticeboard range originally sold by TeacherBoards, look no further! Sundeala Noticeboards were made incredibly popular by a long list of benefits, topped by the fact they are produced from 100% recycled materials e.g coffee cups, egg boxes, newsprint and teabag fabric to boot. What made these boards so versatile is because they are a compressed single fibreboard, unlike felt wrapped foam, they can be cut to any shape, and any size to suit all settings including schools, offices, studios, home offices and more.

Recycled Polycolour FR® Noticeboards are now fast becoming the replacement to Sundeala  with  an equally impressive resume of benefits, placement options, manufacturing bonuses, eco-friendliness ratings AND pricing. So what is Polycolour FR®, and why should you consider it?

Polycolour FR® noticeboards are acoustically absorbent panels with a felt like finish available in a range of vibrant colours. They are made from 100% PET plastic which depending on the colour, contain up to 90% post-consumer material. Polycolour FR® are also recyclable back into the PET waste stream, making them indefinitely eco-friendly. They also come with a Fire Rating to BS EN 13501- Class B Fire Rating, making them a safe and practical solution for use at home and in the workplace.

Available in a range of vibrant and muted colours to suit any environment, they have a soft felt-like finish and can be unframed or framed in aluminium or hardwood, providing all the inspiration you need to get creative and match up to your current style and colour scheme. These boards are versatile too. As well as using them on walls you can put them on ceilings and integrate them into existing furniture systems. And, if the open plan office is a touch too noisy, choose recycled notice boards. Not only are they decorative, they also absorb sound with a noise reduction co-efficient of 0.8. You can also choose to have your Polycolour FR® Noticeboard printed to incorporate branding and simple imagery onto your information display point.
