Here we take a look at some of the advantages of using glass whiteboards over the more traditional versions – including blackboards – that many of us grew up with in our schools. Boards were limited to places of learning, but today they are much more widely used in further educational establishments as well as offices and places of work.

Environmentally Friendly

At the top of the list is the fact that glass whiteboards are eco-friendly. This is of particular significance to educational establishments, which are much more likely to choose school dry wipe whiteboards for their classrooms and lecture theatres, thereby instilling in learners the importance of the environment. Post-it notes, paper boards and notepads are things of the past when replaced with glass whiteboards; similarly, the easy cleaning of such boards has eradicated any dust that was produced when cleaning traditional blackboards. Importantly, glass whiteboards can be easily recycled and have no components that can release toxic gases when they are disposed of, such as plastic, formaldehyde, paint or adhesives.


The combination of tempered and toughened safety glass makes glass whiteboards extremely durable and long-lasting. In the rare event of one breaking, the glass will not shatter – instead it pebbles up and is thus less likely to cause damage or injury to those nearby.

Glass whiteboards – such as those from – can last for many years. They are made of hard-wearing materials, and such longevity is a distinct advantage, meaning that regular replacements and the associated cost are a thing of the past.

Easy Cleaning

Over time, cleaning traditional black and whiteboards can be an arduous and time-consuming job, often leaving spots and stains that are impossible to remove. Not so with a glass whiteboard, which wipes clean every time, leaving no marks or residue.

The Look

Glass whiteboards look slick, professional and clean and sit well within both educational and corporate environments. As they don’t retain any permanent stains due to the materials they are made of – the toughened and tempered glass – they add a modern and state-of-the-art feel to the space.

The change in board technology offers a definite bonus to any classroom, lecture theatre, office space or conference facility. Glass whiteboards are the equipment of choice and an outstanding alternative to other traditional boards.
