Have you considered adding a magnetic surface to your workspace? Whether it’s an office or classroom, having a magnetic surface in your space can really change the way you work.

But with so many products available, how do you know which one to choose? The answer really depends on your needs and what product  best fits them. So, in order to make your choice easier, we have included all of the products that could be of interest to you below.

Keep reading and see which option is the best one to create your magnetic surfaces with.

Create A Magnetic Surface With Magnetic Paint

The first magnetic product we’ll be talking about is Magnetic Paint.

With this product you can create a magnetic surface in any size you choose. It has 50% magnetite content, with each tin including the required 3 coats for your size area.

This means your wall will have a medium magnetic strength. You can, of course, increase this if you want by adding additional coats of Magnetic Paint.

This paint is also an extremely cost-effective product meaning that you can create a high-quality magnetic surface on a budget.

Once your magnetic surfaces are prepared, why not topcoat with any paint, digital print or wallpaper of your choice for a great looking surface that also gives you magnetic performance.
