These are the conventional types of boards, made from rigid materials such as PVC foam or aluminium composite. These work excellently where you require heavier fixings such as T-Card Panels or acrylic document holders. They have the advantage of allowing items to be riveted through them.
They are also at home in situations where you are creating a board specially designed for its attractive looks such as in a reception or visitor area, as they give the option of using a metal fitting to ‘float’ them off the wall. This also provides a space behind them suitable to conceal electric cables so that these board can include monitors, etc
The Clarity Magnetic Overlay is a unique product which gives all the functionality and professional appearance of magnet-receptive, printed dry-wipe boards but is far more economical and simple to change.
Clarity Magnetic Overlays have also proved highly successful with our global customers. The product can be simply rolled up in a tube for quick and easy dispatch – saving expensive freight charges for rigid visual management boards. This puts centralised production in easy reach of global organisations which help them reap the huge benefits of standardisation
Clarity magnetic overlays are most commonly used on a standard magnetic office whiteboard, and our standard sizes overlay exactly fit within the frame of standard office whiteboards, contributing to the appearance that they are a framed, printed board.
Standard overlay sizes for our most popular whiteboards:
However, they can also be manufactured to any size to a maximum width of 1200 mm, enabling even long corridors to feature a continuous graphic when used in conjunction with Clarity Seamless Whiteboards. They are excellent used in combination with our Info Pillar, sliding whiteboard systems, our mobile whiteboard, metal panelled walls such as are often used in food factories and placed directly on the side of machines or vehicles.
These eye-catching, highly visual boards use a magnetic pointer as an indicator. To get the best results, we recommend using a rigid board as this allows us to rivet the pointer in place so that it remains central even when being frequently changed. Magnetic overlays work well too … just the pointer has to be constantly manually matched up to a guide marking on the overlay.
One of our customers came up with this ingenious idea for meeting rooms where sensitive data has to be available when needed, but is not on display to visitors or other users of the room. The solution not only meets the need, but gives a very attractive meeting room at other times!
