Screw-On Chalk-to-Marker Retro Fit Boards


Category Details

Retro-fitting your existing chalkboards to whiteboards has never been easier. We designed the Magnawhite Retro-fit system to be simple to install and provide the most professional fit and finish possible while keeping prices affordable. It starts with a measurement of your existing chalkboard that you would like to convert to a whiteboard. We take it from there. School Fix will send you a quote on your project within 24 hours.

Retro Fit Boards are made with an extruded 7/8” thick aluminum frame surrounding a bright & vibrant writing surface with a galvanized backer sheet. Between the writing surface and backing sheet is a corrugated core, providing you with no flex. Boards longer than 10 feet require a Cover Bar that will allow any length to be installed. We ship Magnawhite Retro-fits to your doorstep, ready for installation! In-stock sizes & custom cut sizes ship to you in 48 Hours.

Installation is manageable enough for one person to handle. We provide self-drilling screws that secure right into your old chalkboard frame. No glue is required because the rigid galvanized backing sheet eliminates any flex that glue would ordinarily reduce. Another great feature is that there is no need to remove and dispose of your old chalkboards. Magnawhite Retro-fit uses the chalkboard as a secure backing to mount to.
