What is a magnetic whiteboard wall?

A magnetic whiteboard wall is exactly what it sounds like – a wall surface that functions like a whiteboard and also holds magnets, attaches notes, papers and other times to the board’s surface.

It provides a vast, smooth writing surface that can be used with dry-erase markers, just like a whiteboard.

But the magic lies in the hidden layer under the surface. This layer, typically made of magnetic material, allows you to attach notes, photos, documents, and other visual aids using magnets.

If you have been wondering are magnetic whiteboards better, let us tell you that the modern whiteboard walls certainly get the job done but magnetic whiteboards elevate the game. Magnets add versatility for notes, images, and visuals, saving space and boosting collaboration.

To decide on a magnetic whiteboard or a non-magnetic board, first consider your needs. Magnetic whiteboards offer a dynamic workspace and you can hold papers with magnets, magnetic dusters, and other writable accessories. Should your requirement be a cost-effective writing solution needing a basic writing surface, a non-magnetic whiteboard could be the way to go. We have multiple product options matching your whiteboard wall needs.

Our magnetic whiteboard solutions let you turn any smooth surface — walls, furniture, glass partitions, and even concrete into a functional magnetic whiteboard. And, our whiteboard paint is one of the best products in its class.

The magnetic paint has high magnetite content which ensures that you can stick multiple sheets, notes, and images on the whiteboard with a single neo magnet. This creates a dynamic and interactive space, perfect for brainstorming, meetings, presentations, or educational activities in classrooms.

Next, we will explore how these innovative surface solutions can enhance offices as well as educational settings.

Use of magnetic whiteboard walls in educational environment

Magnetic whiteboard walls transform classrooms from static spaces to dynamic platforms of engagement. Let’s find out the few of the many advantages of magnetic whiteboards and how these innovative walls can elevate teaching and empower students to learn and collaborate.

  • Interactive learning: Transform boring lectures into engaging experiences. Use colourful dry-erase markers to highlight key points, create diagrams, or solve problems without worrying about limited space. Add notes and images with magnets to display research findings, artwork, and projects.
  • Enhanced collaboration: Large magnetic whiteboards for classrooms are ideal for teamwork. Students can brainstorm ideas, sketch solutions, and visually organise their work using markers and magnets. This collaborative approach encourages communication, supports critical thinking, and learning from peers.
  • Differentiated instruction: Magnetic whiteboard walls cater to diverse learning styles. Visual learners benefit from diagrams, charts, and mind maps displayed on the wall. Kinesthetic learners can engage by moving magnets around and physically organising information. This versatile tool allows teachers to tailor their lessons to cater to individual needs.
  • Learning gamification: Inject a dose of fun into learning. Use magnetic whiteboard walls for educational games and activities. Create a giant word search using magnets, or display a timeline of historical events students can arrange. This gamified approach boosts engagement and helps students retain information more effectively.

To design a magnetic whiteboard wall in an office or classroom, one can utilise between the two available options of — magnetic whiteboard wall paint and magnetic whiteboard wallpaper.
