FAQs

What is a Potter Interior Systems whiteboard?
A high quality magnetic porcelain on steel whiteboard that is constructed from durable materials such as MDF, with an aluminium frame. Every whiteboard includes a simple DIY hidden fixing clip system, 500mm penrail and duster. Our boards stand the test of time and come with a 20 year surface guarantee.

Do you provide custom made boards? Is this a huge cost?
Potter Interior Systems can custom make a board that is sized specifically to what is required on site. This service is not charged at a premium, with each job costed equitably.

Is there a standard height for the whiteboard?
The maximum height of a framed whiteboard is 1520mm and 1216mm for all others.  Larger boards can be manufactured but will require joins.We are happy to discuss further if you require larger boards. Boards can also easily be manufactured with joints.

Do you only make whiteboards?
No. We manufacture using primarily porcelain and from this we can supply whiteboards, greyboards, chalkboards, and many other applications. Potter Interior Systems have a variety of board types that help solve space and usability issue’s, like sliding rail’s and counterweight boards. We also manufacture fabric covered pinboard as wall hung boards or as complete wall coverings.

What materials are used in the manufacture of whiteboards?
We use a thin sheet of porcelain of steel laminated to a 4.75 MDF base as standard, with either a foil backing or an aluminium backing sheet. We can vary the substrates to suit a client’s requirements, ie: if the board is going to the Pacific we use an appropriate moisture resistance substrate.

How do you care for the board once it is purchased?
All Potter Interior Systems boards are supplied with a care and maintenance sticker. We recommend that boards are cleaned daily with a dry duster, and a minimum of once a week cleaned thoroughly with our citrus based cleaner. Boards that are used extensively may require more regular cleaning. We also recommend the use of good quality pens as lesser quality pens can leave residue on the board.

What are typical lead times for made to measure whiteboards?
As soon as your requirements are confirmed, costed, and accepted we can start the manufacturing process, that is approximately 5-7 working days.

Can I have a frame in anything other than anodised aluminium?
Yes. Options are available for the frame to be powder coated or timber frames are also available. We offer a variety of profiles and finishing to suit the look you required to be achieved.

Can porcelain be directly applied on the wall?
Yes, although as it is very thin it is not easy to transport and when glued to the wall will pick up any and all imperfections which will affect the surface.  We strongly recommend laminating to at least a 3mm mdf especially where there may be floor to ceiling boards across an entire wall. Potter Interior Systems regularly install frameless boards directly onto a suitable wall. This gives a very modern finish that enables large area’s to become multifunctional whiteboard surfaces.
