Non Magnetic Whiteboard Wall Covering (Metallic Finish)
This versatile and easy to use product offers the perfect solution where a large whiteboard material is required to cover a large surface area.
Supplied on a roll, and attached to the wall using adhesive, the surface allows you to write on / wipe off with dry wipe marker pens like a standard whiteboard, but is easy to install floor to ceiling, or across a room horizontally as shown below:
Surface type: High sheen, dry erase marker surface with a protective Teflon coating in a white finish
Installation is as easy as applying a standard commercial wallcovering. It can be hung horizontally or vertically, to allow for optimum writing area as required. Pen trays and end caps can be used for a professional finish.
The whiteboard wall should be installed using the WWC Adhesive.
- Install using WWC Adhesive
- For writing, we highly recommend the use of high quality dry erase marker pens. To avoid residual marks, we also advise regular cleaning with whiteboard cleaner
- Do not use ballpoint pens or other sharp pointed writing instruments on the Whiteboard Wall Covering
- Use non-abrasive cleaners
- Permanent markings may be removed with alcohol or by writing over the markings with a dry erase marker pen, then wipe clean

Preparation is essential for a good quality installation. Any wall imperfections will be noticeable after the product is installed and a good smooth wall surface is critical for a uniform appearance. Side or window lit surfaces will increase the visibility of any wall imperfections. Therefore, all wall surfaces should be inspected carefully before installation to ensure suitability.
- Brush off all dirt and loose material with a stiff bristle brush.
- Remove all old backing paper from the wall surface. Ensure hanging surface is smooth, clean, dry in depth, of a uniform colour and in a sound condition.
- The surface should be free from contaminants such as dirt, dust, grease, mildew, ink stains etc - any of these can prevent adhesion taking place. Wash with a detergent solution, rinse off with clean water and allow to dry.
- Mould and Algae should be treated with a fungicidal wash and use in accordance with the pack instructions and allow to dry.
- Fill cracks, holes or defects flush with a proprietary filler in accordance with the manufacturer's instructions.
- Ensure floors are swept clean to avoid dirt gathering at skirting level.
- Ensure that you are installing under adequate lighting conditions.
- Site temperature should not be below 12°C (55°F). Avoid excessive heat until adhesive is fully dried
Plasterboard: Prime surface with WWC Primer in accordance with instructions and allow to dry before hanging. (File any nail heads, screws, etc. and coat with light coloured oil-based metal primer prior to primer if needed. All holes should be filled and smoothed.)
Porous surface (plaster, cement render, etc): Ensure old plaster stable and free of mould. Ensure new plaster dry in depth. Seal with WWC Primer.
Non-porous surface (glass, gloss paint, etc): Abrade surface to provide a key. Wash and dry thoroughly. Use WWC Adhesive.
Emulsion paint: Abrade surface to provide a good key. Wash and dry thoroughly. Apply one coat of WWC Primer.
Existing vinyl: Ensure substrate is completely sealed (ie no blown joints, shrinkage etc). Remove all grease, dirt, dust etc - a brush will help in loosening dirt from the crevices of the embossing. Rinse and allow to dry. Hang wallcoverings using WWC Adhesive.
- For best results, install horizontally to minimize noticeable seams.
- Measure the length of the wall to be covered starting and finishing into an internal angle and cut the wall covering to length, reversing each alternate length.
- Measure the height of the sections, and add a tolerance of say, 10cm to each figure. Cut and hang in sequence, numbering the top of each length to ensure the wall covering is reversed.
- Use full widths only. Do not in-fill over doors and windows out of sequence.
- Avoid positioning seams/joints in the main writing area.
- Using a brush and roller, apply the adhesive to the bottom section of the wall first.
- Using a hard plastic spatula, after first smoothing the spatula edges, hang the cut length of wall covering with the pre-trimmed edge uppermost aligned to the lower chalk line.
- Take care not to scratch or crease the wall covering. Do not use metal, sharp or rough-edged tools to smooth the wall covering to the wall.
- Repeat this process with the full-width piece of wall covering, applied to the centre section of the wall and aligned to the upper chalk line ensuring there is a minimum 5cm overlap.
- Using a Joint Cutter and a spirit level or straight edge as a guide, trim the two sections of wall covering horizontally or vertically.
- Remove the waste pieces and make the joint taking care not to get adhesive on the face of the wall covering.
- Repeat this process for the top section, again ensuring there is a minimum 5cm overlap and make the joint in the same manner.
- Hang 3 lengths, leave for an hour then inspect. Please contact us if in any doubt as to whiteboard wall coverings appearance. We cannot accept any claims for more than 3 lengths once the material has been cut.
- Continue to check each drop for shading as you proceed.
- With overlap and trim material, overlap by approx. 5cm and trim down the middle. Always use a sharp blade to double-cut or trim material.
- If not carrying out a full wall installation, the wall covering should be framed for best appearance and to help edges remain tight to the wall surface.
- Use wall covering spatula in up and down direction only. Horizontal smoothing may stretch the wall covering.
- Trim the ceiling skirting and sidelines using a snap blade knife and the plastic spatula as a guide.
- Avoid getting adhesive on the surface of any wall covering as complete removal may not be possible.
- Before using the wall covering surface, clean surface thoroughly with clean water and a soft cloth, then dry the surface using a soft dry lint-free cloth. Be sure to remove any residual adhesive that may have been left during installation. Avoid scratching to remove any adhesive residue as this will damage the surface.
