How do I clean my dry-erase whiteboard? Chevron Icon

Cleaning your whiteboard can be done in a few easy steps. Learn more about how to clean and maintain your whiteboard.

How do I remove stains from my dry-erase whiteboard? Chevron Icon

Most stains can be removed with a whiteboard cleaning spray. However, there are some instances where a stain cannot be removed, often when the ink was left on the board for an excessive amount of time. This will vary depending on the surface type of the board.

If you have a light-use board, consistent erasing and cleaning will help maintain the surface and extend the life of the board. Quartet offers a variety of accessories to help you care for your whiteboard including high-quality erasers to quickly and easily wipe the surface clean, along with board cleaner sprays and board wipes to remove ink and dirt.

Learn more about how to clean and maintain your whiteboard.

What is the difference between Nano-Clean and porcelain dry-erase whiteboards? Chevron Icon

Nano-Clean and porcelain refer to the surface of the board. A porcelain board has a porcelain enamel surface, which is fused to steel-backing at high temperatures. A Nano-Clean board is a painted steel board that has been treated with a proprietary coating to help improve staining and ghosting. In both cases, the surfaces provide exceptional dry-erase performance. However, the porcelain option will be more durable and resist scratches and dents.

Can I purchase additional/replacement mounting hardware for my dry-erase whiteboard or bulletin board? Chevron Icon

We offer replacement hardware on many of our popular whiteboards. However, hardware may not be available for discontinued or older product lines. Please check with our Customer Service Team for availability at 1-844-715-3694.

Is mounting hardware included with dry-erase whiteboards? Chevron Icon

Yes, mounting hardware for standard dry-wall installation comes with all whiteboards.

Are markers included with dry-erase whiteboards? Chevron Icon

Yes, all dry-erase boards will come with a Quartet dry-erase marker.

Are erasers included with dry-erase whiteboards? Chevron Icon

No, unless specifically identified on the product page.

Are all dry-erase whiteboards the same? Chevron Icon

No, while they may look similar, the surface material and composition of the board will greatly impact the overall performance. Generally, there are three main surface types of whiteboards: porcelain, painted steel, and melamine. The frequency of cleanings, erasability, and the longevity of the product will vary by surface type. 

What size whiteboard should I buy? Chevron Icon

This is entirely based on your preference. Think about the room the board will be placed in and the available space within that room. We recommend measuring out the open area and placing a tape outline of the board to help you visualize the size. The most common board sizes are 2' x 1 1/2', 3' x 2', 4' x 3', 6' x 4', and 8' x 4'.

What is the difference between a small board and a large board? Chevron Icon

At Quartet, we classify glass boards 4' x 3' or larger and whiteboards 5' x 3' and larger as large boards. Anything smaller is considered a small board. This is important as all of our large boards ship via LTL, while our small boards ship via standard ground, express, or overnight.

Can permanent marker be removed from my dry-erase board? Chevron Icon

Yes, a high-quality whiteboard surface can be restored. Draw over the permanent marker with a black dry-erase marker. Wait a few minutes and erase with a whiteboard eraser. The permanent marker ink binds with the dry-erase ink, which lets you erase the permanent marker. After erasing, clean the board using a Quartet cleaning solution. 

How do I mount or install my dry-erase whiteboard? Chevron Icon

Product-specific mounting hardware and instructions are included with every Quartet whiteboard. You can also visit our Installation Guide page for detailed installation instructions for your product. 

Can whiteboards be mounted vertically instead of horizontally? Chevron Icon

It depends on the board, but most of our whiteboards have flexible mounting. This lets you install them either horizontally or vertically. Unless there is a tray that dictates that the board must be mounted horizontally, the board can be installed either way.

Refer to the instruction sheet included with your board if you aren’t sure or contact our Customer Service Team with any questions.

Where can I purchase a Quartet whiteboard and whiteboard accessories? Chevron Icon

Quartet products are available at most office supply stores, through office supply dealers, online retailers and directly through the brand site at Quartet.com.

How do I mount or install my glass dry-erase board? Chevron Icon

Product-specific mounting hardware and instructions are included with every Quartet board. You can also visit our Installation Guide page for detailed installation instructions for your product.

What types of surfaces can I mount my glass dry-erase board onto? Chevron Icon

Our mounting hardware is designed for dry-wall surfaces. The mounting hardware is not intended to mount to brick, cinder block, concrete or wood surfaces. While boards can be mounted to those surfaces with the correct hardware, we do not offer that hardware at this time.

What are the best markers for glass dry-erase boards? Chevron Icon

We recommend using our Premium Glass Board Dry-Erase Markers, which are specifically designed for use on glass boards.

What is the difference between Brilliance and Infinity Glass Boards? Chevron Icon

Brilliance Glass Boards are made from a premium glass, which has undergone additional processing to remove most of the iron content in the glass. Visually, this means the Brilliance Glass Boards will have a bright white appearance, which improves the overall contrast with marker ink. Infinity glass boards do not undergo the same treatment and are made with standard tempered glass.

What magnets work best on magnetic glass boards? Chevron Icon

Only rare-earth magnets will work on magnetic glass boards. Due to the thickness of the glass, standard magnets are generally not strong enough to hold their position.

Do glass boards contain hazardous material? Chevron Icon

No, our glass boards do not contain hazardous materials.

Some of our markers, like the Premium Glass or EnduraGlide markers, contain alcohol in the ink, and are deemed “hazardous” per US regulations for that inclusion.

How far off the wall are glass boards when mounted? Chevron Icon

The distance from the wall to the very front of the board surface is usually 1". This may vary depending on the type of the glass board.

How thick are glass boards? Chevron Icon

Our glass boards are 4 mm thick, which is the ideal thickness to blend strength and durability, while minimizing overall product weight.

Can I order replacement mounting hardware for my glass board? Chevron Icon

Yes, you can purchase replacement hardware for Infinity and Brilliance Glass Boards from Quartet.com. We offer six different colors and multiple sizes, depending on the size of your board.

We offer replacement hardware on many of our other popular glass boards. However, hardware may not be available for discontinued or older product lines. Please check with our Customer Service Team for availability at 1-844-715-3694.

Can glass boards be mounted vertically instead of horizontally? Chevron Icon

It depends on the board. Infinity and Brilliance boards can be hung vertically and horizontally, while InvisaMount boards must be installed horizontally.

Refer to the instruction sheet included with your board if you aren’t sure or contact our Customer Service Team with any questions.

Can you project onto glass boards? Chevron Icon

Due to the reflective nature of glass, we don’t recommend it, as there may be a glare across the image.

Can I order custom board sizes? Chevron Icon

At this time, we do not offer custom sizing on our boards.

Can I order a board with a custom decal or graphic? Chevron Icon

At this time, we do not offer custom boards. However, you can purchase the Quartet Infinity Customizable Glass Dry-Erase Board and insert your own background or graphics, which can be created at a local design or print shop. We also offer a variety of common templates you can use.

Can I cut my glass board into different sizes? Chevron Icon

No, do not cut your board. If you attempt to cut glass after it has been tempered, it will break and will not be usable.

Do glass boards shatter easily? Chevron Icon

No, our glass boards are made with tempered glass, which make them up to four times stronger than normal glass.

Our glass boards are made from glass conforming to ASTM C1036 & C1048 standards. The glass is tempered, tested, and certified to ANSI Z97.1 & 16CFR1201C11 (impact testing) industry standards

Do you offer installation services? Chevron Icon

Customers are responsible for mounting or installing their boards. You can find installation instructions here.

Yes, other glass board markers are compatible with our glass boards. However, Quartet Glass Board Markers are designed and optimized to work the best with our board surfaces.

What is the difference between fine tip, bullet tip, and chisel tip markers? Chevron Icon

Fine tip dry-erase markers create thin, precise lines. They are a great choice for defined writing and detailed drawings.

Bullet tip dry-erase markers create thick, broad lines. This helps make writing more easily seen read by others, both up close and from a distance.

Chisel tip dry-erase markers can create either thick or think lines. The multipurpose point lets you customize your written message to fit your needs.
