Hertz Furniture’s wide selection of chalkboards includes wall-mounted models as well as portable units. If you prefer to use a lot of color, we have a number of excellent whiteboards. Give your lessons the jump start they need with a blackboard or dry erase board from Hertz furniture.
The traditional classroom setup includes a wall-mounted chalkboard at the front of the room. This arrangement enables the teacher to complement orally-transmitted information with visual aids and real-time examples. By securing the board in one position in a particular room, you ensure that it will always be there when it is needed, and no teacher will be left scrambling around at the last second when class is about to start and there is no space at the front of the room for recording notes.
While the mounted option is ideal for many educational settings, there are also many benefits to having a portable blackboard. Mobile chalkboards can transform any room into a seminar room or classroom instantly. Locking casters keep boards securely in place while they are in use and enable them to be moved in a flash when they are needed in another location. Portable chalkboards can also be used as dividers.
When you don’t have much space for a board, but you have lots to write, a reversible model can really come in handy. This convenient setup provides double the amount of writing space without taking up any extra room. When you are in the middle of a lesson and one side of the board is full, you don’t have to waste any time erasing your work to make space. Simply flip over the board and you have a whole new writing surface. An added advantage of this arrangement is that you can easily refer back to previous work by flipping the board over once again.
Tired of getting chalk dust all over your hands every time you want to write something down? You might want to think about updating your space with a magnetic whiteboard. Unlike the black or green surface of most chalkboards, the white surface of a dry erase board makes writing easier to see. A whiteboard facilitates smooth, clear writing in a choice of vibrant colors.
Dry erase boards eliminate those squeaky chalk sounds that grate on the ears of many teachers and students. When markers are used instead of chalk, no dust builds up on hands or clothing. This maintains better air quality in the room and minimizes problems for people with allergies.
While chalk does come in a selection of hues, it is often hard to distinguish between them, especially on a black background. The full brightness of dry erase markers can be appreciated against the background of a whiteboard. More colors can make it easier to categorize information, organize notes and highlight particular elements of a lesson or steps in a process. A solid white background can also be used as a screen for viewing movies, slides or a computer screen projection.
Chalkboards have their unique benefits as well. If a teacher or professional accidentally gets some marker on their clothes, it is unlikely that it will come out without a good washing. That means they might be stuck walking around with an embarrassing stain for an entire day. Chalk is easy to wash or wipe off of clothes and hands. Chalk is also virtually odorless, unlike whiteboard markers whose smell many find unpleasant.
Board material preference is entirely a matter of personal taste. Because companies and schools have many employees, each of whom has a partiality toward one material or the other, the ideal is to provide options so everyone can have what they prefer. We have reversible models which have a chalkboard on one side and a markerboard on the other, so you can ensure that each person has the material that is most comfortable for them. When a teacher or business-person has their ideal setup in a class or presentation it is easier for them to focus and stay on top of their game.
There are a number of convenient features that can really enhance your experience with any chalkboard or whiteboard. A chalk tray or marker tray keeps writing implements handy so they are always easy to find and can be picked up and put down as needed. In a school setting, it might be a good idea to install a map rail above the board so maps and other important charts or visual aids can be kept in a readily-accessible position whenever they are needed.
No matter what the size of your business or school is, employees, students, colleagues and clients are sure to appreciate the clear communication that is afforded by a chalkboard or whiteboard. With our great selection of models, you can find the perfect size and setup for any space, large or small.
