Ceramicsteel, controlling, quality

An ongoing process 

Our detailed production process employs a continuous coil-coating method. A thin layer of cold-rolled carbon steel is carefully coated with porcelain enamel.

This fusion, achieved at high temperatures, creates a resilient and enduring bond. The chosen metal substrate, renowned for its stability and ability to withstand intense heat, further reinforces CeramicSteel's structural integrity.

Choose CeramicSteel for a fusion of art and engineering, a testament to Polyvision’s commitment to quality, durability, and beauty in every coil, sheet, or panel.

Quelles sont les différences entre les finitions des surfaces d'écriture ?

High gloss markerboard surfaces, Type H (High Gloss) and Type U (Ultra Gloss), are ideal for collaborative spaces, meeting rooms, and classrooms where frequent writing and erasing occur. Low gloss surfaces, Type L (Low Gloss) and Type S (Satin), reduce light distortion and are perfect for brightly lit rooms and can also serve as projection surfaces. Type P is a dedicated projection surface optimized for projectors but requires wet-erase for cleaning. Chalkboard surfaces, Type C, offer a low gloss matte finish that easily erases chalk and minimizes dust residue.

Pourquoi choisir Ceramicsteel ?

Polyvision's CeramicSteel stands out for its exceptional durability and performance. Unlike other writing surfaces, it boasts a glass-like finish that meets international standards by ISO, EN, EEA, CEN, and PEI. Not only is it 99% recyclable and clean air certified, but it also comes with a Forever Warranty. Our e³ CeramicSteel is specifically designed for superior writing and erasing capabilities with minimal performance deterioration over time.

What are the key features of CeramicSteel?

CeramicSteel by Polyvision combines durability with aesthetic appeal, offering a magnetic, glass-like surface that enhances collaborative spaces. It's remarkably scratch-resistant and easy to clean, maintaining its appearance even in harsh environments.

How do I know whether my board has an e³ CeramicSteel surface?

To verify, check if the surface is magnetic and try to scratch it in a hidden area with a coin or key. If it resists scratching, it's likely CeramicSteel.

Quelle est la garantie incluse ?
