Magnetic glass wipe boards are a simple and affordable way to keep from spending money on expensive whiteboards. They’re magnetized glass boards with a safe film peel-away which are available in various sizes and shapes.
While not as durable as boards made from steel and aluminum, these magnetic glass wipeboards will stop you from spending so much money on refillable whiteboard markers, replacement erasers and disposable wipes. The glass surface is a nice alternative to the traditional whiteboard that can quickly be covered with chalk dust or marker residue. It’s also safer than the old-fashioned butcher paper that was often hung on walls in classrooms years ago.
Benefits of magnetic glass wipe boards
- Magnetic glass wipe boards are very affordable.
This is probably the biggest benefit of all. It costs very little to have a set of magnetic glass wipe boards on hand. If you don’t care much about the pristine look of your surfaces then these are also an inexpensive way to get rid of germs and bacteria, as well as chalk dust and marker residue that can be left behind on other magnetic boards.
- They’re easy to clean after each use.
The glass surface is a nice alternative to the traditional whiteboard that can be wiped clean before it’s used again, making this a very cost-effective option for everyday classrooms and offices alike. Chalk dust or marker residue can be wiped away with the dry cloth that comes with the board or with cleaning wipes. You can use rubbing alcohol to remove sticker residue. Cleaning is also easy when you’ve used an electronic board eraser.
- They come in various sizes and shapes.
You’ll have plenty of options when it comes to size, shape and color with these reusable glass wipe boards by Bragica. They make these magnetic glass boards in plain black, white, clear and frosted glass as well as custom printed design boards which are ideal for decorating your classroom or office space with your own designs or graphics. You can also order them in various sizes including 24″ x 18″ (61 x 46.3 cm), 18″ x 12″ (45.7 x 30.5 cm) and 24″ x 12″ (61 x 30.5 cm).
- They’re a more affordable alternative to electro-magnetic boards.
If you’ve got an electronic whiteboard for your classroom, purchasing a set of these glass wipe boards can help you save money on costly replacement erasers as well as marker ink and markers, provided that you don’t mind having to wipe off the writing with a dry cloth after each use.
Drawbacks of magnetic glass wipe boards
- They can be broken if mishandled.
Just as with any other glass or plastic product, these magnetic glass wipe boards are subject to breakage if they are handled roughly. They’re also lightweight and will weigh down a heavy-duty metal magnetic board if you place them right next to it.
- Magnetic glass wipe boards can’t be placed too close to each other.
These portable magnetic boards are meant for one-on-one use. If you have more than one board, you’ll have to make sure that they’re kept far enough apart so that it doesn’t get messy if people make contact. If you buy these magnetic glass boards for a classroom setting where the walls are not spaced very far apart, the students will end up being very close to each other when writing so it may become necessary to ask them not to sit right on top of each other.
- They may not work with some electronic whiteboards.
The makers of these magnetic glass wipe boards don’t make them specifically for electronic whiteboards and other electronic devices such as calculators or digital cameras so there’s no assurance that they’ll work with your electronic device or magnetic board.
