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.

With outdoor and indoor models, you can ensure that your message is heard loud and clear in any space. Aarco Products brings you high-quality boards at budget-friendly prices. With the right dry erase boards and blackboards, you can keep classes, meetings or seminars clear and organized.
Any company, institution or school can benefit from having some clear display space. Even when announcements are made and E-mails are sent to the whole mailing list, many people will forget about important events if they are not reminded. With bulletin boards in hallways, lobbies and outdoor areas, you can hang signs in places where people are sure to see them.
You can choose from a selection of vinyl and cork boards, both of which are easy to use. Simply staple or tack papers in place and they will remain visible to your target audience. Unlike cork, vinyl will not fade in the sunlight. If there is a concern that students might try to hang up unauthorized fliers, posters or announcements, enclosed bulletin boards with locking doors will ensure that only approved materials are displayed.
For a more organized and professional-style message space, try an indoor or outdoor message board. Letter boards are used with easy-to-read plastic letters that are lined up in neat rows to display any message. They are perfect for a busy street or other outdoor areas because they can be seen from far away. To ensure that the community stays informed and knows whose message is being presented, models can be purchased with the logo of any institution on top.
Every classroom needs a blackboard or whiteboard. Each of these options has distinct advantages, and the right choice ultimately depends on which material an individual prefers. Wall-mounted boards remain in place so they are always ready for use when needed for class. Free-standing boards are convenient because they can be moved around so any space can be transformed into a functional classroom. They also offer the advantage of having two whole sides to write on. When one side is full of notes and information, the board can simply be flipped over and there is a whole new, clean writing space.
Dry erase boards come in a selection of materials. If you just need a space to write notes at the front of the conference room, a regular white board will do the job. However, if you want the ability to hang up papers and signs as well, a magnetic whiteboard is the way to go. With this option, papers can be posted in a highly-visible space without damaging the surface of the board.
In the modern era, more and more teachers and professionals are using audio visual equipment rather than relying solely on boards. When presenting a slideshow or clip in a class or meeting it is important to make sure that the images are displayed clearly. With a white projection screen, you can ensure that no marks on the wall or board will interfere with the presentation. Motorized wall-mounted projector screens take up very little room when not in use and are easy to arrange when needed.
In addition to having various boards and display spaces, Aarco also offers some convenient library furniture. Plastic literature racks offer a great place for magazines, pamphlets and brochures. They can be mounted on the wall of a library, entryway or waiting room so clients and visitors can get all of the information they need. Whether you are promoting community events, offering special services, or simply supplying information, a brochure rack can always come in handy.
Hertz Furniture is proud to present a great selection of office and school furniture from Aarco. With functional display and presentation spaces, information can be conveyed in a clear and organized way so everyone will stay informed.
