The two whiteboard variants Skin Standard and Skin Pro differ only in their surface finish:
We recommend the whiteboard skin standard with its pure white painted surface, if you want to use the surface primarily as a magnetic board to organize and only occasionally as a writing board. The whiteboard Skin Pro, on the other hand, is sealed with a special, very smooth polyester layer (RAL traffic white color). This ensures that your whiteboard marker ink can be wiped off the surface very well. We recommend the Pro version if you use your board mainly as a writing board.
In addition, Rocada's skin boards stand out over other whiteboards because of their minimalist design. They are frameless and are attached to the wall with the help of magnets. So you can mount several boards side by side on the push and get a large, continuous work surface. Otherwise, put the Rocada boards with different surfaces directly together: Skin Pro for writing, Skin Standard for organizing with magnets, and the Skin Chalkboard as a blackboard. Furthermore, magnets are included in the delivery for assembly a drilling template and a screw set including dowels.
The backplate for placing flipcharts or dropping pegs attaches them on the back side (only when needed) so that no noticeable holes will disturb the plain appearance of the boards if you do not mount the rail.
The standard lacquered whiteboard is coated with a powder coating, on which you can use all standard whiteboard markers and especially magnets. Written with whiteboard markers you can dry wipe off the painted surface. After intensive use, however, we recommend wiping the board damp with a special, alcohol-based panel cleaner suitable for cleaning whiteboards (do not use household detergents or solvents such as gasoline, acetone or turpentine!).
From our experience we give you the following advice for using the whiteboard:
Clean the board immediately after use. It is better to take a picture of the board than to leave writing on the board for days. After prolonged drying (plus any photochemical reactions), it is difficult to remove shadows ("ghost images") after cleaning.
If possible, do not use different pens to write over one another. Writing over sketches or notes already made on the board can lead to more difficult residues on the board in the mix of different colors or marker types.
Only write on the board with markers specifically named "whiteboard markers"! Other "non-permanent markers" are not suitable.
When using a board wiper for dry cleaning, replace the cleaning felt in good time. Otherwise, the wiper smears more than it wipes away. In addition to using a board wiper, periodically use a moist felt to clean the board.
Do not use microfiber cloths for cleaning. Microfiber cloths have an abrasive effect and leave very fine (invisible) scratches on the surface, into which color pigments run during the next application of paint. This makes the color pigments very hard to remove.
