Hufcor Provides Yet Another Option for Schools: Folding Dry Erase Marker Boards
Trimmed or Untrimmed Edges,Whatever a School, University or Commercial Space Requires
Janesville, WI…Hufcor®, the most installed brand of operable partition in the world, introduces new Folding Dry Erase Marker Boards for schools, universities and commercial buildings.
In response to the preference of some schools and architects, Hufcor now offers an untrimmed dry erase surface, even though the operable partitions have vertical panel-to-panel seams.
“Hufcor provides more marker board choices than any other manufacturer,” says Scott Staedter, Senior Manager for Brand Development at Hufcor. “In the past, Hufcor provided all of its marker board options with a protective edge trim, but now with our new dry erase steel marker boards we can provide an untrimmed edge on the vertical marker board - both inset or full-height.”
The new Hufcor marker board systems are constructed of heavy gauge, and tension-leveled steel to maintain a very flat–and magnetic–surface. The coated surfaces have a 60 percent gloss finish and can be used as an effective, alternative projection screen allowing educational spaces to accommodate new interactive technologies.
The new Hufcor Folding Dry Erase Marker Boards surfaces can be cleaned with standard dry erase cleaners or with mild soaps. In fact, the coatings on the marker boards allow even permanent markers to be carefully dissolved and removed.
In addition, the standard Hufcor low profile hinge projects only about 1/4" off the face of the system and fits snuggly within the panel-to-panel seam. This avoids a common problem with other products on the market–a large butt hinge that interferes with the marker surfaces when writing panel-to-panel.
For school architects, commercial design firms and districts looking to efficiently design marker boards into their operable partition projects, Hufcor offers the most efficient BIM Revit families for its industry-leading 600 Series operable partitions. Visit www.hufcor.com.
