Which Whiteboard

When deciding on which whiteboard best suits you or your customer’s needs you should first determine:
  1. What will you be using the whiteboard for and how often will it be used.
  2. The Whiteboard size. Can you get it into the building, up the stairs, around corners, or into lifts?
  3. Then the type of Surface for the board – Commercial or Porcelain.
    Both have very specific uses and requirements. The information provided will enable you to select the most suitable whiteboard surface.

As an Australian manufacturer, Vista can manufacture to your requirements.

Commercial Whiteboard(VTC)

Surface is an excellent low cost alternative to porcelain. The surface is warrantied for 10 years, under normal use. This surface is in low end usage sites where daily regular use is not required. The surface has dry-erase capabilities and with a set cleaning procedure in place, will provide years of easy use.

Porcelain Whiteboards

Porcelain Whiteboards are manufactured to handle the rigors of busy offices, educational facilities, conference auditoriums and training rooms.  All Porcelain Whiteboards are made from environmentally friendly e3 ceramic surface and have a lifetime warranty on the surface.  It will not scratch, stain or fade with an unmatched erasability and a consistently smooth writing surface. You can use dry-erase whiteboard markers with confidence. A simple cleaning regime will ensure the lifelong service of your whiteboard.

There are three different types of Porcelain boards. Check to see which best suits your usage.

High Gloss Porcelain Surface –VWB

High Gloss Porcelain Surface has the quality and durability to withstand daily and intensive use. This is the ideal whiteboard for everyday use. If the whiteboard is to be used mainly as a projection surface see option 2 or 3.

Low Gloss Porcelain Surface –VPS (Projection):

This is the best surface for all projectors includingInteractive projection usage with minimal whiteboard functionality.It has a substrate that provides a super flat surface especially vital to all ultra-short throw and interactive projectors. Being low gloss the dry erasability of the surface is not as effective as the high gloss, and requires an increased use of whiteboard cleaning fluids and a more regular cleaning process.

High Gloss Projection Porcelain Surface –VWBP

The substrate allows us to create a super-flat Porcelain high gloss surface that reproduces superb interactive projector & ultra-short throw projector images. It also has the added convenience of daily use whiteboard dry-erase. This is the correct whiteboard for daily intensive usage as the VWB above but allows better projection reproduction. Lighting and reflections must be considered when determining the main use for this board. It may be better to use the VPS board.

High Gloss Porcelain Surface Printed –VPWB:

Here at Vista, we now have the capabilities to print Porcelain Whiteboards to your own individual designs. Be it names, lines, images, logos or colours. Production planning, sales targets and charts, safety boards, sports boards and patient care are only some of the uses for printed boards.With all of the properties of our “VWB” porcelain boards, the addition of a printed surface provides for the ultimate whiteboard experience.
