Marker Board

Magnetic BoardIn recent years, magnetic board equipment in conjunction with dry erase or ordinary marker board has found widespread acceptance in schools, conference centers, churches and meeting places of all sorts. This presents us with so many new opportunities for effective communication. The big advantage of the magnetic board equipment is the excellent adhesion that the magnetic visuals are given. The magnetic surface is also often prepared with a dry wipe surface so that dry wipe markers may easily be wiped off. Magnetized rubber tape is available with a self-adhesive backing so that any picture can be quickly adapted by the addition of a couple of small pieces of magnetic tape. The magnetic surface may double as a bulletin board. Boards now come made from tempered safety glass that will not stain, ghost or dent. Frames come in aluminum in a variety of colors. Some boards come with two sides, one of bulletin or cork and the other in the magnetic dry-erase surfacing. Others are specially designed for the classroom with a frame and four casters for added mobility. There are also colorful magnetic rubber tiles, and small button magnets used on refrigerator doors available for other uses.
