University of Cape Town Library

The Brief

To supply and install white writing boards with no frames and no visible fixings, with a surface coating guaranteed not to ghost-write. As the boards were intended for use by students, the surface had to be graffiti proof and vandal resistant.

The Solution

Vitraclad Vitreous Enameled steel, heavy gauge cladding panels were supplied and installed by our in-house installation teams. The panels were constructed with return flanges and installed with a purpose designed, hidden support structure, allowing for the fitting of computer monitors, onto the face of the Vitraclad panels. A 5 mm shadow-line join connect the panels.

Due to the extreme surface hardness of vitreous enamel, these boards are scratch- and scuff resistant. They are guaranteed not to develop hairline cracks, which would cause the dry-wipe marker-pen ink to leach into the surface (ghost-writing). Even spray-paints and permanent marker ink can easily be cleaned off the boards without causing damage to the writing surface.

The writing-surface is conditionally guaranteed for 20 years.
