Whiteboards compared

Whiteboards are a must in every office, but they can also be extremely useful in other environments such as schools, universities or even at exhibitions and presentations. They are a brilliant tool for educating and explaining.

There are many different types of whiteboard out there, each specially designed with particular features to help you get your point across. Let's take a quick look at the differences and pro points of each:

Non-magnetic, dry-wipe whiteboards. These standard, easy-clean whiteboards have many applications, and no educational facility or office should be without one. They look smart, are a very eco-friendly option, and you never have to worry about that ‘pen ghosting' problem as they wipe clean in an instant.

Magnetic, dry-wipe whiteboards. Similar to the previous type, these whiteboards have the added advantage of a magnetic surface. This means you can use magnetic pins and tape to brighten up a lesson or presentation.

Combination whiteboards. If you need more of a public display than a presentation tool, this half-felt/half-whiteboard option is more than up to the job.

Mobile whiteboards. If you need to move your whiteboard for any reason, this mobile option is the best choice as they are on wheels and are often ‘flippable' for double-sided use.

Printed surface whiteboards. These whiteboards are a real time-saver, as the music lines/grid/graph/calendar is already printed on for you.

Freestanding whiteboards. These are perfect for exhibitions and presentations as they complement your other display materials. Easy to set up and lockable, they also have a heavy, solid base for extra stability (so you can write on them confidently).
