We offer a full range of whiteboards. These include a good quality and reliable economical range, to a more robust extra heavy duty option with porcelain surfaces specifically designed and manufactured for high use environments such as educational and training facilities.
You can have your white board surface permanently printed with a design of your choice, and we also have a range specifically for school use with term and year planners pre-printed. Our pin boards are available with a fabric surface that blends in easily with most decors, or a more traditional cork surface.

Buying factors to consider
How will you use your white board, glass board and pin board?
Consider the type of projects and uses of your work boards to figure out the right options to buy. Boards come in different sizes and material types, which means making a choice can be a little more difficult if you don’t know the intended use.
Want to buy one and figure out the use later? It’s not the best strategy because you may not choose the work board that’s optimal for your needs or office space. Therefore, visualise the board in action ahead of time to make the right buying decision.
Whiteboard, pinboard or glassboard?
The first choice you need to make is if you will choose a whiteboard, glassboard or pinboard and here are reasons:
• Whiteboard: these boards are ideal for when you need to write things down. You’ll be using your first hand writing skills frequently and you have the freedom to draw. Whiteboards provide the flexibility to draw what you need without restrictions. You can also rub out mistakes, but you need to buy the right pen so that it’s easier to remove. Choose magnetic whiteboards for added functionality.
• Glassboard: These have a similar function to whiteboards, but are a little more upmarket and modern. They are available in many different colour options, and also magnetic. Please note though, that you really should use special glassboard marker pens for the best results.
• Pinboard: these are for used mainly for pinning notes, but also increasingly popular for their acoustic properties, absorbing noise and reducing room reverberation. They’re also very popular for adding a little colour around the room, as they can be made to order in many fabric colour options and custom sizes.
These are the biggest differences between the different options, which should help you make the right choice.
The size of the board is one of the main buying factors. It depends on your requirements and the amount of space you have to work with. Smaller office spaces may benefit from a smaller board so that it doesn’t overwhelm the space and look cramped.
Consider buying several smaller boards so that you have the freedom to dot them around the office space. Boards can be taken down and installed without much effort. Therefore, you can move boards around an office, or purchase additional ones as your requirements change.
Consider how much force a board can take before it begins to show signs of wear and tear. It’s especially important if you plan on moving your board around the office frequently. Our products come with a very good commercial warranty, which means you can buy with peace of mind. If you do notice any manufacturer inconsistencies or broken parts, then please let us know straight away and we can organise a replacement for you.
Boards might come with special features such as magnetic surfaces or subtle grids. These give you more functionality to create a presentation that’s impactful and effective. Furthermore, boards can come with tools such as pins and markers. The inclusion of these special features provides more value for the price.
Whiteboards can also come with rules and other equipment to help you draw on a large scale. Imagine trying to find a ruler in your room that is big enough for a whiteboard – it would be a hassle.
How much money do you have to spend on a whiteboard? There is no need to spend on a premium model, if you only use it occasionally and can get the same work done on a cheaper one. We provide some of the best value for money on the market for boards.
Larger boards that may offer more durability are as a rule of thumb more expensive. Therefore, buy a smaller board if you’re on a tight budget. You can always buy more boards in the future when your needs arise and you have the budget.
Q. Do I really need a whiteboard in the digital age?
A. Yes! Sure computers are great, but the boards provide the flexibility to share ideas quickly and no training is required. You don’t have to train an employee to learn how to use a whiteboard, but with PowerPoint that’s not the case.
Q. How do I know what board size I need?
A. Get the tape measure out and put it on the wall. Try to visualise how much room you’ll need to get your ideas across on the board and not what the measurements are. Then take a look at the board measurements in the product description. We provide a large range of sizes so you have the freedom to choose what works for you.
Q. What are the advantages of a mobile board?
A. The mobile boards that we sell can be moved around on a stand. This gives you the freedom to move the board freely around the office. Therefore, you can give the same presentation in different rooms on the same day without drawing the same content several times.
They also pivot, so you get the benefit of having two writing surfaces to use.
Q. Do you have magnetic boards?
A. Yes, take a look at our range of magnetic boards, which are manufactured from standard duty components, and our heavy duty porcelain whiteboard options. The magnetic strength is good enough for most objects that are typically placed on work boards
