    Whiteboards - For creativity and productive work

    Whiteboards serve as an effective tool to unleash creativity in various environments while increasing productivity. No matter whether in the office, in the classroom or in other meeting rooms – recording ideas, structuring them logically and promoting collaboration through interactivity are the core tasks of a whiteboard. Below you will find out all the important aspects of this helpful communication tool.

    What exactly is a whiteboard?

    Whiteboards are also known as dry erase boards or whiteboards. Basically, they have a smooth surface that can be written on with whiteboard markers. In contrast to chalkboards or Flipcharts, special markers are used here, which can be easily removed. The surface can be labeled with text, diagrams or other information. This makes whiteboards particularly suitable for interactive meetings. They are also ideal tools for working with Post-its and for sorting and structuring thoughts.

    What is digital Whiteboards all about?

    Digital whiteboards provide a large display that allows the user, in addition to simple writing and drawing, to view and edit digital content. The interactive boards such asb The Samsung Flip therefore offers more flexibility through touchscreen interaction, shape recognition or even digitization and automatic storage of what is written. This makes them ideal for people who want to use virtual features for collaboration or who generally prefer a digital working environment.

    What are the uses of a whiteboard?

    Whiteboards, similar to Flipcharts, offer a wealth of possible uses and serve as a practical aid for various activities. Basic possible applications include:

    • Brainstorming: Whiteboards are ideal for recording ideas. Whether alone or in a team, you can jot down ideas, create mind maps and develop creative concepts with pens, post-it notes or magnetic stickers
    • Presentations: Whiteboards are often used as visual aids in presentations and lectures. Diagrams, graphics and key information can be clearly presented and made understandable using the boards.
    • Project management: The boards are ideal for planning and organizing projects. Visualizing schedules, to-do lists, and milestones to track progress and keep the team informed are just a few of the benefits.
    • Collaboration and teamwork: Whiteboards promote interactivity and teamwork. This means you can develop ideas together with your colleagues and sketch solution strategies on the whiteboard.

    Who are whiteboards useful for?

    The communication tool is suitable for anyone who wants to present information quickly and clearly. The following people particularly enjoy working with whiteboards:

    • Teachers and lecturers
    • Business people and project managers
    • Creatives and designers
    • Researchers and scientists
    • Students and learners
    • Parents and educators

    All of these groups have one thing in common: they use the whiteboards to record and visualize information and to increase and pass on the learning effect through meaningful illustration.

    What types of whiteboards are there?

    Whiteboards are available in various designs, which can differ depending on the intended use. The classic whiteboard is a board that is hung on the wall and can be written on from there. The surface is usually made of enamelled, powder-coated steel or plastic. The board is often magnetic and thus offers the possibility of attaching notes and other documents to the surface using magnets, similar to a pin board.

    Another variant is mobile whiteboards. These are mounted on a tripod with Castors and can therefore be easily moved. This is particularly practical, for example, in offices or schools where flexibility and mobility are required. The surface is the same as the classic wall version.

    If you like something more visually appealing, you can also use glass boards. These have an elegant and modern look and are usually made of tempered glass. The transparent surface can also be written on and can be easily kept clean with special cleaning agents. This variant is also available with and without feet or Castors.

    Lastly there are the digital or interactive whiteboards. These are particularly contemporary and enable not only writing, but also digital editing of the content in real time. The touchscreen function with different apps also offers additional options for interacting with the display.

    What whiteboard alternatives are there?

    In addition to the diverse variants of whiteboards, there are also various alternatives for individual needs:

    If you don't want to miss the feeling of pen and paper when writing, you have the option of using Flipcharts. These are very similar in structure to whiteboards on a tripod. However, the board holds a large pad of paper, which is attached to a sturdy holder. Depending on the manufacturer, there are also a few variants for different needs.

    Another option is the so-called blackboard color. This can be easily applied to walls or other surfaces and written on just like a whiteboard. This alternative is particularly space-saving and can transform almost any surface into a whiteboard.

    There are also numerous whiteboard apps that can be used on tablets or smartphones. These apps have the same functions as a whiteboard, with the advantage that digital writing, drawing and sharing content is also possible.

    What makes a good whiteboard?

    A good whiteboard has several features that ensure its functionality and longevity. Three aspects are particularly important:




    The surface should be smooth and easy to write on. The markers should glide smoothly and the writing should be clearly visible.


    A high-quality whiteboard should be stable and robust and withstand everyday use. It should be scratch-resistant and resistant to stains and dirt.

    Easy cleaning

    A good whiteboard should be easy to clean. It should wipe easily with a dry or damp cloth without leaving any stains or residue.


    Therefore, think in advance what requirements your whiteboard has to withstand and pay particular attention to the materials used. the right cleaning products and stationery also play a crucial role in longevity.

    What should you pay attention to when buying a whiteboard?

    Before purchasing a whiteboard, there are a few factors you should consider to make sure it meets your needs. Depending on the room structure and intended use, there are different models that come into question. It's best to think about its use in advance and select the whiteboard according to the following criteria:

    • Size: Select the size of the whiteboard according to the available space and your needs. Think about how much space you need for your notes, drawings or presentations.
    • Surface Material: Examine the surface material of the whiteboard. Laminated steel or enameled steel surfaces are typically durable and easy to clean.
    • Magnetic Properties: If you want the ability to attach objects to the whiteboard, make sure the surface is magnetic.
    • Mobility: Ask yourself whether you need a movable whiteboard with a stand and Castors or whether a wall-mounted version is more suitable.

    How are whiteboards cleaned?

    In order not to limit the lifespan and functionality of your whiteboard, regular maintenance of the surface is crucial. We have put together instructions for you on how to clean your whiteboard step by step:

    1. Use a dry cloth or whiteboard eraser to remove dry marker residue.
    2. For stubborn stains or residue, use a whiteboard cleaner or a mild detergent. Apply the cleaner - for example Oranex - to a microfiber cloth or paper towel and wipe the surface of the whiteboard. Then clean the surface with water.
    3. After cleaning, dry the surface thoroughly with a clean, dry cloth.

    Cleaning the board is quick and is an important part of the longevity of the whiteboard. You don't have to use a cleaning agent after every use of the board, but mainly for very dry residues that cannot be easily removed with a cloth or blackboard wiper.

    What accessories do you need for whiteboards?

    Not only the quality features of the board, but also the accessories used play a role in the optimal use of whiteboards. Above all, the use of the right markers is crucial.

    Special whiteboard markers should be used on whiteboard surfaces. These dry very quickly and can be easily wiped off again. A wide repertoire of colors also helps to better distinguish individual sections from each other.

    Linear and stencils also help with the better representation of content. They can help draw precise lines and create specific shapes or symbols on the whiteboard. Magnets or Post It's are also ideal for attaching notes, documents or other materials to the whiteboard. Almost all whiteboards can now be used as magnetic boards, which is why the small holders are a useful addition.

    Before you can use the whiteboard again, the surface must first be thoroughly cleaned. There are various options here, such as special erasers, blackboard wipers, cloths and cleaning products. Regular cleaning ensures that the marker paint does not dry out and is therefore easier to remove.
