Information Sharing

Writing on a chalkboard or whiteboard is both kinesthetic and visual. The act of writing and drawing engages the user physically and mentally, and that boosts learning. Research shows that people are 20% more likely to remember something if it’s displayed on a wall. Writing boards allow individuals to record ideas, transfer knowledge and create visual, side-by-side comparisons. It can be a key enabler in helping groups reach a shared understanding faster and more effectively.

Low maintenance

When it comes to the rigors of classrooms and offices, PolyVision e3 CeramicSteel outperforms. It is the world’s most durable and sustainable CeramicSteel surface. The environmentally friendly surface delivers extremely high resistance to impact damage, abrasion, scratching, and color fading and is backed by a lifetime warranty.

PolyVision’s e3 CeramicSteel Chalk Surface has a superior, low-gloss, matte finish that readily accepts chalk providing a sharp, unbroken line with less pressure and maximum surface adherence. The surface erases easily with a dry cloth or standard chalk eraser, retains minimal residual chalk dust and will not leave “ghost writing”. This ultra matte finish yields less chalk dust for a cleaner, healthier environment. The e3 CeramicSteel Chalk surface is available in four colors and is customizable with logos or other graphics.

e3 CeramicSteel is produced by means of an ISO 9001 compliant, continuous coil-coating process, consisting of a steel core of light gauge covered on both sides with thin enamel coatings. The ceramic finish is fused to the steel at a temperature in the range of 700–900 oC (1292–1652 oF). The e3 CeramicSteel is used mainly for magnet-retaining whiteboard or chalkboard applications.
