FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions

Which magnets are suitable for whiteboards and whiteboard sheets?

Table of Contents
Below we will show you a selection of different magnets you can use on the following surfaces:

Office magnets

Not every office magnet from the supermagnete assortment will adhere to whiteboards and whiteboard sheets. Below, we explain why this is the case and show you which office magnets you can use for which surface.

For whiteboards

Many of our office magnets are suitable for use on whiteboards. The whiteboards in our assortment are made of plastic-coated sheet steel, and the office magnets will stick perfectly to this completely ferromagnetic surface.

For whiteboard sheets

Not all of the magnets that stick to whiteboards can also be used on whiteboard sheets. That’s because of the nature of the sheets. Here, iron particles are bound in plastic – hence, they are not entirely made of iron. Magnets with a low adhesive force or a lot of weight, therefore, adhere insufficiently to whiteboard sheets.

Magnetic tapes, magnetic sheets & magnetic frames

You can use magnetic sheets and magnetic tape to cut out your own signs or symbols to use on a whiteboard or whiteboard sheet (for a brainstorming session perhaps).
With the magnetic frames in A4 and A5 formats in 4 different colours, you can customise and protect schedules, statistics or notes displayed on a whiteboard.

Raw magnets

If you like simplicity, we recommend discreet neodymium magnets (spheres, cubes or rods). These magnets are easy to grasp and can be repositioned without much effort. They work particularly well if you want to attach thin documents to whiteboards and whiteboard sheets.

Coated neodymium magnets

The following applies to all neodymium magnets: Do not slide the magnets around on the whiteboard or blackboard without backing, as this may cause scratches.
We recommend using plastic-coated or rubberised neodymium magnets, which protect whiteboards and whiteboard sheets from scratches:

Other accessories

We also carry many whiteboard accessories in our online shop, such as magnetic symbols, magnetic board cleaner, and magnetic pen holders.
