      Smart 3-in-1 Wallcovering creates a surface that is magnetic, whiteboard and suitable for use with projectors. Its low sheen finish reduces hotspots, making it the ideal solution for interactive presentations.

      Such surfaces are typically used for brainstorming, planning, meetings, presentations, demonstrations, videos, classroom based activities and more.
      For best results, we recommend using quality whiteboard markers and accessories. We also recommend cleaning the surface daily with a Smart Sponge or microfibre cloth.
