PORCELAIN WHITEBOARD

Vitreous Porcelain Enamel Whiteboards have a baked on enamel surface similar to a stove or washing machine.
Non porosity and hardness provide the best durability in whiteboard surfaces as it not only resists scratches and dents but markers don't penetrate the surface. 
These properties mean easier, more effective cleaning and longer life.Our Porcelain Whiteboards  carry a 25 year surface warranty
These are our recommended for all day, heavy duty users and are the only recommended board for EDUCATION GRADE WHITEBOARDS.

COMMERCIAL WHITEBOARD

Commercial  grade. The writing surface is an acrylic material which is chemically bonded to the steel sheet
The steel sheet is lighter in gauge than porcelain steel and therefore weighs less
There is minimal marker solvent  penetration of the surface over time
With care these boards are an excellent choice for low usage, general home, and office use where board care is allocated to specific people
You should avoid low quality substandard markers, and promptly erase after use, and use fluid whiteboard cleaner regularly to maintain original performance
Our Commercial White Boards  carry an 8 year surface warranty
