Size : Most important thing while selecting the writing board is the size which you require, as writing board comes in various sizes. Customized sizes are also available as per your requirement .
Surface : The other most important thing about the writing board is its surface on which we write primarily there are three types of writing surfaces as
A. Non Magnetic Laminated Surface : These are the most cost effective types of writing surfaces as the top layer of the writing board is Laminated Melamine sheet which can be used as a white Board for marker writing. Laminated sheet for chalk board is also available in Green and Black color. Laminated surface is non magnetic in nature and can be erased with the help of a duster. Life of laminated boards is less as compared to other available writing boards as the surface can easily be scratched & damaged with used chalks or markers.
B. Magnetic Surface : These are the most commonly used writing board surface in classrooms. The top layer of the writing board is Imported resin coated, which is magnetic in nature which is used for marker writing. Resin coated chalk board surface is also available in green color which is also magnetic in nature and can be erased with the help of a duster. Magnetic surface allows you to use the same board as a reminder board / task board and sticky notes board as the surface is magnetic in nature. Life of resin coated boards is better than laminate board but the surface for resin coated boards can also be scratched and damaged easily. Resin coated boards are most commonly used in offices and homes.
