How to choose a blackboard?
The first step to updating the class is choosing a high-quality, modern and reliable board. The assortment of school products is diverse, and in order to choose the appropriate option, you need to know the main features and differences of blackboards.
The number of board surfaces
The number of working surfaces of the board can be from 1 to 7. One school board can combine different types of surfaces, and with its help you can display more information.
Categories of blackboards:
Material and reliability
To choose a quality board, pay attention to its base and surface. Reliable and durable boards are reinforced with metal on the back side. The surface material is metal polymer or cermets.
The production process of these boards consists in applying a polymer coating to a galvanized sheet of metal and further baking. Such a surface is resistant to corrosion and also has anti-glare properties. A board made of a metal polymer is an excellent option for a school.
In the process of manufacturing blackboards for teaching, they also use heavy-duty ceramic-metal coating. It is created by fusing ceramics with metal. School boards with a ceramic-metal surface are resistant to external damage. Subject to the rules of operation, the service life of such boards is almost endless.
Ceramic-metal boards are also resistant to corrosion and have anti-glare properties. This is the optimal solution for higher education institutions, physical and mathematical classes, technical schools and the like.
Type and color of surface
The surface of the board may be chalky or marker. Both types of surfaces have magnetic properties, that is, additional information can be attached to the board with magnets or accessories with magnetic tape.
Chalk boards are dark green and black.
The marker board is made of white metal polymer. Colored markers marked “whiteboard” are suitable for its use.
Surface Profile Selection
Framing a board is part of its design. The range of surface profiles includes:
Profile "Standard". Made of anodized aluminum with anti-corrosion coating. It is supplemented with plastic caps in the corners.
Profile "Scrabble". The more complex design of the aluminum profile makes it stronger. It is equipped with a poster holder, complemented by green inserts in the corners and can be painted in the selected color.
Classic profile. Made of natural wood. It can be narrow or wide, depending on the format of the board.
Wooden edging. Thin framing of the board is made of natural wood.
When choosing a board, pay attention to the structural elements.
An accessory shelf keeps chalk or markers handy. Width from 5 cm makes the shelf roomy and comfortable. The best solution for a chalk board is a shelf for the entire length of its middle part with protective elements along the edges.
The optimum distance between the closed flaps of the board is 15 mm.
Among the technologies used by TCO Company, laser tracing occupies a special place. This method has no analogues in Europe, and its application makes the learning process easier.
With the help of a high-precision laser, the selected chalk or marker board can be drawn into a “line”, “cell”, “oblique”, and “stave”. This will allow writing on its surface more evenly and confidently. When laser drawing, the protective layer of the board is not damaged, while the lines are clear.
Individual drawing is also possible: tables, text, logo of the institution.
