If you work in a school your probably
accustom to using whiteboards when teaching, but schools aren't the only ones
using this traditional note making or presentation method. Many people keep
small whiteboards at home, whether it’s in a home office, or in a
room to encourage learning, even offices use whiteboards and it’s been incredibly popular for a
number of years. But with new board types being introduced such as interactive
boards and glass boards, are whiteboards becoming dated and out of fashion?
If you’re asking which board type is right
for you and the environment you work in, read our break down of the two board
types below to see which board would suit you the most.
Traditionally, whiteboards have been
one of the longest note taking methods used across the world. These board types
are particularly popular in schools for lessons, but are also often also often
used in offices for note taking and presentations.
Despite other board types being
available, whiteboards remain a present and popular choice, particularly
amongst classrooms. While whiteboards are predominately used in schools, they
can be used creatively in other environments.
Whiteboards are available in a range
of sizes so there’s nearly always an option to fit the
space. They are also an affordable option when compared to other products
adding to their appeal. This allows you to
use miniature whiteboards with students in classrooms, small whiteboards at
workstations, medium whiteboards in home offices and larger boards in
classrooms and offices. Because of the durability and
reasonable pricing whiteboards are often easy and good selections of board
types for all environments.
This board type is often available as
a multi purpose board; half whiteboard and another type of surface, usually
felt or cork. Because of this, you can store many types of notes and
attachments to these boards. Whiteboards also come in mobile options, so they
can be moved around classrooms and offices easily.

Glass boards defiantly stand out
amongst other board types. With a smooth cutting edge contemporary finish due
to the simplistic use of glass, glass boards appear incredibly modern and
stylish whilst having the ability to blend in to any environment due to its transparency. Due to their contemporary style, these boards
are great for improving the image of professionalism in offices.
Glass boards don’t just look great, they’re also great to use. These boards
don’t suffer from ghosting like
whiteboards do, which is perfect for clean office environments that are tended
to be kept tidy for professionalism.
Unlike whiteboards, glass boards can
come in multiple colours. Whether you want a standard clear board to blend in
with your office environment, a blue board for design and architecture purposes
or even a vibrant coloured board to brighten up a classroom, glass boards can
come in many colours to suit every room, even your home office. You can also
add LED lighting to your glass board, to continue a polished, contemporary
theme with your boards in the office to add a high quality feel to your working
Glass boards are available in a
selection of sizes. Although whiteboards vary in size, placing different sizes
and colours of glass boards together can be a highly creative method of
decorating your office or classroom, and yet the boards still maintain their
functionality. For example, you can place miniature glass boards along your
workstation, and with the use of coloured glass boards, you can colour code
your boards for various types of notices and levels of importance.
As well as the ability to choose from
various coloured boards, with glass boards you
can also have high quality images of your choice printed onto the
surface of the board, from family photographs to company branding and logos. Personalise your own glass boards for
your office today.
not forget how durable glass boards are. Whilst some people may think glass
boards may be easy to break if they’re
actually made with tempered glass so these boards are equally as strong as
whiteboards and every precaution is taken when shipping them to ensure they
arrive in perfect condition.
Glass boards tend to be more
expensive than whiteboards but glass boards are generally longer lasting more
durable and have a premium look within a well styled office environment. They
won’t suffer staining and ghosting
that whiteboards do, making them long term options opposed to whiteboards that
can begin to appear worn and old after regular use.
