• Whiteboards which are also often called dry-wipe boards have become one of the most popular presentation equipment which is commonly used within offices, conference rooms, schools, colleges and other professional environments. Whiteboards are very similar to chalkboards in terms of their uses as they allow applying temporary writing and drawing on their surface. There are few main advantages of whiteboards, one of which is the variety of colours that can be used when compared to a blackboard. 

• Depending on your needs and requirements you can choose from different types of surfaces used in whiteboards. For low volume and home use you might choose a melamine whiteboard which are fairly inexpensive and can be found in a lot of smaller sizes. If you require a more robust and suitable for heavier use whiteboard you might pick a painted steel or aluminium surface whiteboard. Such whiteboards deliver great dry erase properties and some allow using permanent markers as such markings can be wiped clean as well. The most advanced and durable type of whiteboard is an enamel whiteboard – these whiteboards are ideal for heavy everyday use as they are scratch and chip-resistant as well as very easy to clean. Enamel whiteboards are typically more expensive than other types of whiteboards but their performance and lifespan are the best available especially for frequent use. 

• Whiteboards are available in a wide selection of sizes ranging from compact A4 or A3 which are handy to use at home or a small office to large format whiteboards that can be over 2m wide and 1,2m high. You can find dozens of sizes that are set between these smallest and largest whiteboards which allows finding a whiteboard which will exactly fit the available space. 

• One of the properties that are worth deciding on when looking for a whiteboard is whether we need a magnetic surface or a non-magnetic surface. Most of whiteboards do come with a magnetic surface which allows the user to attach printed documents, drawings, photos etc. that can be helpful when having a presentation or a training session. Non-magnetic surfaces can usually be found in cheap basic whiteboards. 

• When writing or drawing on a whiteboard you should only use whiteboard markers as they use a special type of ink which allows easy removal and doesn’t leave any marks. If it happens that a permanent marker is used to write on a whiteboard surface there are several ways to remove it: in some cases it might only require to over write such markings with a whiteboard marker and dry wipe it as usual; if this doesn’t work there are several types of sprays and wipes that contain alcohol or a similar active substance that will allow removing permanent ink. 

• Whiteboards can also be used as projector screens for overhead or multimedia projectors when necessary. The less glossy is the whiteboard surface the better image quality will be achieved from projection. But at the same time matt or semi-matt whiteboards are a bit more difficult to clean.
