Part I: Glass Whiteboard Frequently Asked Questions
Glass whiteboards are the newest and best product for hospitals, offices and professors. These boards are much more durable and long-lasting than their whiteboard ancestors. Since they’re the newest products out on the market, we realize customers have quite a few valid questions that we could answer. Here are some of the most asked questions:
Q: How do I install my whiteboard?
A: Our boards are easy to install, but you’ll need to have yourself and at least one other person to help hold the board. The boards come with a paper template that you can use to mark the holes on the wall. First, you need to find where you want your board, measure and level the space. Once you get the template on the wall and it looks perfect, you just drill where each corner is marked. From there you will want to secure the board into place with your wall anchors and standoffs. The standoffs help give your board a modern, 3-D look and secure the board tightly in place. Once your four standoffs are in place, you’ll need two people to move the board into position. Once your board is placed on the standoffs, the last thing you need to do is screw on the top! Shouldn’t take more than 20 minutes.
Q: How do I keep my whiteboard clean?
A: Keeping a glass whiteboard clean is one of the best parts of owning a glass whiteboard and why our customers love them; there’s not much to do! The glass surface is completely non-porous, meaning you won’t have any issues with the dry erase markers seeping in or the ink staining to the board. Traditional whiteboards, on the other hand, have a light static cling, which hold the dry erase marker to the board. Since dry erase markers coat the ink in a polymer, the ink generally comes off clean, but sometimes the ink can be spread around and can stain the board. With glass whiteboards, dry erase marker never stains or “ghosts,” but like any glass, you may get a few finger prints here and there. For a sparkling shine, clean your board every couple of weeks with a mild glass cleaner. If you use permanent markers or grease pens, you may need to use a little elbow grease, but be sure to use a soft cloth, so you don’t scratch the glass.
