Writing Walls


Writing Wall, Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban Vitrex Writing Walls are a new product, developed by using Vitraclad cladding panels to create large writing surfaces.

Writing Walls are custom-made to suit specific room layouts and wall sizes, offering greatly increased writing surfaces when compared to traditional writing boards.

Writing Walls can also be supplied with graphics and screening options and offer an ideal solution for meeting rooms, boardrooms, computer rooms, laboratories and ´´think tanks``.

Vitrex Writing Wall panels are manufactured with a maximum, individual face width of 1160 mm and maximum height of 3000 mm.

The use of heavy gauge panels offers the design possibility of introducing corners (internal and external) and wrap around elements at the end of a wall.

Alternative painted steel writing surfaces, often categorized alongside vitreous enamel steel by a number of other manufacturers under the generic name of ´´magnetic surfaces``, and the high pressure density laminate (HPDL Formica) writing surfaces, also referred to as a ´´non-magnetic``, although more economical in the short term, cannot match vitreous enamel steel, in terms of material construction, properties and ultimate performance.


Furthermore, the use of these alternative surfaces is not to be recommended, particularly in high use areas (such as teaching institutions), as these:
  • chalk board surfaces are susceptible to ´´Loss of Texture``: the surface becomes smooth, with consequent reduced writing ability and leading to the necessity to replace the boards in a relatively short period of time.
  • white board surfaces become susceptible to ´´Ghosting``: where the porous nature of these alternative surfaces allows the ink to be partially absorbed, with consequent reduced cleaning ability to clean the board and leading to the necessity to replace the boards in a relatively short period of time.
