Traditional Glass Wipe Board vs. Traditional Whiteboard

Everybody is aware that there are different types of writing boards. However, as we get asked by our customers, why they should choose our BowlPhish Glass Wipe Boards over a traditional whiteboard, we thought we would outline the differences in a little blog for you.

The first point we would like to raise is the fact that you may find cheaper glass writing board alternatives, which are usually imported from around the world, but our BowlPhish Glass Writing Boards are manufactured within in our own premises here in the UK. We are constantly investing in new technologies in order to provide the quality of glass boards that our customers expect. Not only increases this investment the quality of our toughened safety glass, but it also shows our commitment to sustainability, which plays an important factor within our operation values.

As we mentioned quality and toughened glass, we should point out that not all alternatives available have been toughened. Toughened glass is five times stronger than ordinary glass, which means, if you really wanted to break it, it is has to be hit with hard force. This also means, in the unlikely event that your BowlPhish glass board breaks, the glass itself will crumble into smaller pieces rather than big shards. This allows our boards to be safe and makes it ideal for your office space.

Although popular with schools, gone are the days of the ordinary whiteboards, which apart from looking grubby and dated, also stain. Glass writing boards do not stain, scuff or get tatty and in fact all our BowlPhish Glass Dry Wipe Boards come with a lifetime surface guarantee. This ensures our customers that our boards are reliable and that they will always remain in a perfect condition - check out our care guide for more information.
