FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What type of glass are they made of?

Our classic Spectrus Glassboards are made with ¼-inch-thick low-iron tempered safety glass and polished edges. Low-iron glass eliminates the green tint typically found in other glass, displaying the true color of the board’s back painting.

Spectrus lite Glassboards use 1mm (0.04″) Corning® Gorilla® Glass for a durable product that’s also incredibly lightweight.

How is the glassboard painted?

Spectrus specializes in back-painted glass and high volume, computer-controlled mass production. We promise exceptional quality coverage & total opacity on every Glassboard. Our specialized paints bond perfectly with the glass so that it doesn’t come off – ever. This durable coating holds up in UV light and interior room environments. Spectrus advanced computer-controlled technology paints each Glassboard the same way, every time, for a uniform & consistent product at a very low cost. Quality consistent color application from 1 – 1,000 Glassboards, Spectrus covers it.

What makes the boards magnetic?

You may choose from either magnetic or non in the Spectrus 1/4 ” thick classic glassboard design. When backed with steel and paired with rare earth magnets your board is transformed into a magnetic surface. Spectrus lite glassboards featuring thinner Corning® Gorilla® Glass are all magnetic.

What type of magnets should I use?

Spectrus lite Glassboards use most ordinary magnets. The classic Spectrus Glassboards are thicker and require rare earth magnets available on our ACCESSORIES page.

What type of markers can I use?

You can use almost any marker, including grease pencils, temporary markers and even Sharpies, but erasable markers are preferred. Your Spectrus Glassboard will never ghost or become dull from use.

What is the recommended method of erasing or cleaning?

For everyday use, we recommend the Spectrus Magnetic Eraser. If the board requires a more thorough cleaning, use any commercial glass cleaning product followed by a dry towel. For stubborn marks, wipe the board with rubbing alcohol followed with a commercial glass cleaner, then dry towel.
