Where should you put a whiteboard? White board placement depends on what kind you are using. Hertz Furniture has classic white boards as well as double-sided, portable and interactive whiteboards. Many of our dry erase boards come with extended warranties for years of demonstrations and explanations in an educational or professional environment.
Which rooms should I put a whiteboard in?
Whiteboards are useful in virtually any setting. They are helpful for keeping track of a meeting agenda in the boardroom, planning out a strategy in the locker room, or demonstrating your methods in the classroom. Their highly-visible surfaces can be used with colorful dry erase markers for clear explanations and categorizations. Markerboard placement should definitely be a consideration when determining boardroom and classroom layouts.
Which subjects do I need a whiteboard for?
No matter what subjects are being taught, a markerboard is an incredibly useful classroom tool. Math problems can be written out and solved in no time, without the distraction of squeaky chalk. Chemistry diagrams can be color-coded by chemical, and history outlines can be easily organized. If you need to define new vocabulary terms in English or a foreign language, you can easily switch-off between colors for the purpose of differentiation and clarity. Using a selection of board markers is a great way to increase classroom colors and help students stay engaged during a lesson.
Many of our whiteboards have extra features that make them even more convenient. Magnetic whiteboards enable you to hang papers without causing damage as a result of sticky tape. You can hang up important fliers or sign-up sheets in a prominent position at the front of the room, and take them down easily when they are no longer relevant. Built-in marker trays are another useful feature to have. They provide an accessible place for markers so they are readily available whenever teachers need them.
What is an interactive whiteboard?
For the latest in digital board technology, try an interactive whiteboard. This is an excellent option that can connect to a computer or data projector for interactive presentations, making it easy to bring technology into the classroom. An interactive white board is controlled by a special multimedia pen so the presenter or teacher can stay in the front of the room rather than having to remain by the computer. With the interactive board, you can save lessons and notes so you don't have to rewrite everything when you want to do a quick review.
What kind of whiteboard is appropriate for the conference room?
If you are concerned that a plain whiteboard does not have the elegant professional feel that you need in the workplace, we offer lots of whiteboard cabinets for office settings. Our dry erase board cabinets have sleek wood veneer doors which can be coordinated to the finish of your other office furniture. The doors can remain closed until you need the contents for a presentation, when you can simply open the doors and have an instant whiteboard.
Should I get a reversible whiteboard?
For maximum flexibility, we also offer double-sided whiteboards. Reversible whiteboards give you double the amount of writing space without taking up any extra space in the room. When you have filled up one side, you can simply flip the white board over and have a clean writing surface. If you want to go back to an example that was illustrated earlier, you can simply flip the dry erase board back over to the first side.
What kind of board should I get for the music room?
Specialized music boards are great for a band room, music room or any practice space. They feature permanent lines which remain in place even when the music whiteboard is repeatedly erased. With straight lines right there, it is easy for the band leader to write the notes for a certain part of the score that they would like young musicians to focus on.
Hertz Furniture has a great selection of whiteboards which are convenient to have in your office or school. All of our models come from reliable manufacturers including Aarco and BestRite. Whether you just need to replace an outdated chalkboard or two, furnish a boardroom or supply an entire high school, you have come to the right destination for top-quality dry erase boards.

Screenflex wall partitions come in a wide variety of sizes, and can be ordered in either wall-mounted or freestanding configurations. They can be used to divide up a large open space into smaller rooms or separate between different areas. With portable partitions, you can transform any space almost instantly. They are great to have in a school or church.
While temporary walls seem like they are a great solution, not all of the options offer the same degree of stability and separation as real walls. Screenflex partitions are distinguished by a high degree of sound absorption so the spaces you create with them really do feel like separate rooms. They are built for maximum stability and easy setup. With a 25-year warranty, you can be sure that this worthwhile investment will pay off in the long term.
Wall partitions are available in two styles. Wall-mounted partitions have one end that is permanently connected to the wall, while the other can be moved. This arrangement is ideal for a space that is often divided in the same way. If you know that a particular room needs to be split in half on a regular basis, the wall-mounted configuration guarantees that you will always have the room dividers in position when you want to rearrange. When the panels are not in use, they won't get in the way. They fold up in a flash and lie flat against the wall.
Freestanding partitions are the more versatile option. They can be wheeled into any room to divide up the space. Companies that host seminars where multiple sessions take place at once in a large space can benefit from the flexibility of this arrangement. Portable partitions can also create new spaces for churches. This is especially helpful if a congregation is renting out a space that is larger than what they need for services. In such a situation, wall partitions can create a more intimate space that keeps the group concentrated in a more focused area.
Not all room partitions have the features that are needed to divide up a space efficiently. Many models can cater to particular arrangements but don't offer the flexibility of use that is needed for multiple applications. Screenflex partitions are extra flexible. Their narrow panels make it easier to create turns. Most brands have panels which are 30" wide, but Screenflex panels are 22" wide, so they are easy to maneuver in order to create unique spaces.
Panel width isn't the only distinguishing feature of these tough room dividers. They are very durable and stable as well. Extra-wide frames with weight concentrated on the bottom prevent partitions from wobbling or tipping over. Built-in insulation makes them absorb sound which minimizes distractions from adjacent spaces.
Whether you are using partitions to separate a banquet hall, gymnasium or work space, it is helpful to have a wall surface that you can hang things up on. Screenflex partitions are tackable. Posters and signs can be hung easily using pins or velcro. With papers and posters hung on the walls, temporary rooms will feel more permanent.
Even when you are using a temporary solution, you can still have many of the benefits of a permanent room. If you need some room for storage in your newly-created space, you can get portable room dividers with a built-in cabinet. Models are even available which include a whiteboard as well. For those who just want a dry erase board without a cabinet, there are special white boards designed to hang on partitions.
These dividers aren't just great when they are already set up, they are convenient in the arrangement process as well. They smoothly roll into position on self-leveling casters, which facilitate stable standing even on uneven flooring. This arrangement enables one-person setup, so no one will have to struggle or go scrambling around to find help.
Screenflex partitions are eco- and budget-friendly. They are made with recycled materials and are cheaper than floor-to-ceiling arrangements. If you are using these room dividers to create fully-enclosed spaces, you can purchase a door panel so the dividers don't have to be moved every time someone wants to enter or exit the space.
When you need a convenient and cost-effective way to divide up a large space, look no further than Screenflex partitions. Room partitions are always convenient to have around, because you never know when you might need an extra seminar space or classroom. If you want help determining which size of partitions will fit in your space or how many you need to order, contact the Hertz Design Center for free project-planning advice.
