Glass Boards vs Whiteboards

Unique Impressions Info-01

 

If you work in a school, you’re probably used 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 child’s 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 analysis of the two board types below to see which board would suit you the most.

Whiteboards

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 taking notes 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

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 environment.

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.

Each board type has its own advantages. The glass boards are beautifully sleek for professional environments, and yet the whiteboards continue to be successful teaching resources within schools. It’s down to you to think about the advantages of each board that have been discussed to conclude on which board is right for you.

The Benefits of Glass Writing Boards

Choosing a whiteboard ought to be a simple task. All you really need to know is what size to choose. Now you might be asked what sort of whiteboard you want because glass writing boards are becoming increasingly popular, and it’s no wonder. Why should you choose a glass whiteboard over the standard design? Although they may all look alike, not all whiteboards are created identically. Glass writing boards have been generating considerable popularity recently due to their ability to adapt to nearly any environment by providing the following benefits.

Style

The first benefit that glass writing boards have to offer is their high-style appearance. The sleek look of glass boards makes them an ideal addition to offices, lounges and high-end restaurants. Not only is the surface of these whiteboards attractive, but these types of products typically do not have the bulky frames that most whiteboards have, and the frameless design gives off a seamless, modern appearance that’s ideal for advertising and interior design use. Glass boards can also come in a wide variety of colours including black, clear, blue, red and much, much more. You can also find them in both high gloss and matte finishes to suit your specific needs.

Durability

One of the more subtle, but most impressive benefits that glass boards have to offer is their ability to withstand heavy use on a daily basis for many years. This is especially beneficial in settings where whiteboards are a crucial part of everyday life for its users. Schools, for instance, can burn through whiteboards within just a few years of purchasing them due to the frequency of which they are used. Because glass whiteboards do not easily streak or stain, you can ensure that you’ll be able to deliver clear and succint messages for years to come.

Cleanliness

Glass boards are a favourite among healthcare providers as they are much easier to keep clean than conventional whiteboards. Hospitals can be major breeding grounds for harmful bacteria, which is why it’s so important for medical furniture to be antimicrobial. Most whiteboards are made of a pressboard material that’s coated in a glossy melamine top layer. Because these types of boards can be easily scratched and scraped, bacteria can get stuck in cracks relatively easily, creating a huge problem in a healthcare setting. The reason glass boards are so much cleaner is that the surface is much tougher to scratch, so there is a far lesser chance of bacteria becoming trapped within dents and dings.

One thing that may seem like an advantage to standard whiteboards is the fact they are magnetic. As well as writing on them, you can stick a note or picture up using magnets – surely this can’t be the case with glass whiteboards? As we mentioned earlier, glass whiteboards are supported by a steel back-plate, fused onto the toughened glass. Although it won’t be as strongly magnetic as a common whiteboard, due to the glass in between the magnet and metal, things can still be stuck up with the use of magnets.

Overall, in a world where things are constantly upgraded, it seemed like whiteboards could only stay the same. Of course, they’ve been replaced by Smart Boards in schools, but in general it’s hard to go a step up on a normal, non-technological whiteboard. It’s a simple thing you write and draw on, so how could you make it look better, and more suitable and stylish for modern business. Well, the glass whiteboard does just that – it’s the perfect addition to any office. Both practical and good looking at the same time.
