A whiteboard is a versatile tool used around the world for any kind of visual presentations. It works as a white canvas that is easily dry erasable, and in many places considered must-have school furniture, office memo board or even as wall mounted office screen. However, with expanding professional glass manufacturing technology (toughened glass and safety glass tech), traditional whiteboards evolved beyond simple drywipe boards or display boards you get from Amazon or eBay.
How much does a Professional Magnetic Glass Board For Home Office Cost?
Here are PROs and CONs and a comparison of Magnetic Glass Whiteboards made by a professional office supplier such as Hexagon Glass Boards vs a cheap Amazon magnetic glass wipe boards. Although we cannot promise to be fully unbiased, we will try to list the major reasons why you should consider one magnetic glass board over another.
Professional Glass Magnetic Board:
- you buy it for life – extra strong toughened glass magnetic board can last the entire generation
- dry erasable with no smudging – use whiteboard pens (or even liquid chalk pens!) and dry wipe it clean stroke; glass boards provide an excellent writing surface that is smooth and even all the way
- custom wipe boards colours or back printing – don’t like a simple white glass? Hundreds of different colours and custom printings are available to either enhance your white magnetic board with a custom image (how about a world map?) or make it as a colourful writing board (or a glass magnetic blackboard?); for example, you can have your branded logo printed in the corner of all your glass display boards, or an employee fixed meeting tables and a memo board
- glass board magnetic properties – can also be used as a glass notice board where a memo can be attached with an extra strong magnet anywhere on the board
- glass series with hidden fixings (no aluminium frame) – to supply the top quality products we made all our wall mounted erase boards with hidden taking its magnetic writing surface to the next level; all boards are available with toughened safety glass and step-by-step installation and product description (you’ll just need universal drill bits and helping hands to put it on the wall)
- wall mounted glass whiteboard as a projector screen – speakers and teachers often use our magnetic glass boards as a versatile interactive whiteboard during a lecture or a presentation
- a glass magnetic whiteboard comes in two versions: as a mobile glass board or wall mounted magnetic glass – so you can use it in any office conference room, reception, hallway, or, in case of the mobile glass board you can move it around the entire office as it comes with sturdy wheels
- additional board accessories (e.g. magnetic dry wipe eraser or a marker tray) and custom magnetic glass sizes make all glass writing boards ready for any type of tasks: notice board, 100-inch (or more) office screen, use as display stands or even as an office room magnetic glass divider
- and with their stylish design, the possibilities are endless!
Amazon Glass Dryerase Board:
- most glass dry wipe boards are cheap and affordable as an entry-level magnetic board especially useful for a small child
- dry wipe boards are lightweight and, if small enough, excellent for role play for kids play as they can be moved freely around the bedroom (or a classroom)
- a magnetic glassboard from Amazon can sometimes ship as express delivery if the stock is available
- it can work quite well as a quick message board if the frosted glass is magnetic (although it may fail to hold a larger size paper and documents
Professional Glass Magnetic Whiteboard:
- the quality products come with a price – given the whiteboard’s stylish design and an exceptional board magnetic materials (incl. toughened safety glass!), it is a decent investment when compared to generic drywipe boards from Amazon or eBay
- in the case of Hexagon Glass Boards, the glass writing boards are designed and manufactured in the UK mainland (North Shields, England to be specific) to your exact requirements – in turn, our standard delivery time is a bit longer than something like writeon magnetic glass whiteboards from Amazon or eBay (but we will plan a delivery date accurately and ship all whiteboard glass boards securely and with safety glass in mind)
Amazon Magnetic Whiteboard Glass:
- often the aluminium frame falls apart after a repetitive use like during role play (often the frame will come off the glass making the corners of the glass boards dangerous) – unfortunately, this is often not covered by the product warranty
- we’ve seen several glass boards that arrived with a weak/too short wall mounts – making the wall mounted magnetic board hard to instal and quite dangerous (imagine sharp glass notice boards dropping on the floor!)
- often a glass dryerase board from Amazon don’t support extra strong magnets as the glass series material comes without a strong magnet sheet
- a marker tray is often cheaply made and comes off the wall mounted magnetic whiteboard as soon as you put more than a couple of whiteboard pens
- a generic whiteboard marker will leave a shadow and a smudge making your white magnetic board always look dirty/smeared; same goes for chalk pens that make your cheap glass dryerase board calling for a window cleaner
- no custom printing or branded logos available
- only limited sizes and board accessories
- most will offer white glass only (no colours!)
- often ship without safety glass
- they look cheap as the manufacturer needs to cut costs on materials that are mostly supplied by no-name third partys from China with dubious product warranty claims
Professional Office Supply Whiteboard Recommendation
As you can see, seemingly similar items have a completely different purpose and target market. A basic magnetic writing whiteboard for a small child can be reasonably purchased from Amazon or eBay, and the quality of the product for that short-term use seem adequate (e.g. writeon magnetic glass whiteboards).
However, any professional business or a sleek home office should look into purchasing something much better that offers not only versatile magnetic glassboard properties but also enhances the office interior design. Therefore, a professional magnetic glass board with a stylish design is the way to go.
