Can whiteboards be recycled? Adapt and re-use your whiteboard furniture.

Whiteboards are difficult to recyle due to their multiple components, which need to be split before they can be processed. This is true of any type of dry wipe board, including magnetic receptive glass whiteboards.

The whiteboard furniture we produce is designed to give many years’ use. As we understand that business needs change, we encourage clients to repurpose and re-use the furniture they have previously purchased from us. Adapting your furniture for re-use is a more sustainable approach that avoids products ending up in landfill, as well as offering a cost saving on buying new.

We undertook a project to recycle products we supplied a few years ago to a long-term client. They have offices in multiple locations, so we worked with them on a plan to relocate some items and re-size them to fit the new space.

Space constraints and cost also dictated the recycling of what was already in place. The client had some of our standard sized ThinkingWall Dividers. They had added soundproofed pods to use for private calls to the ends of the Dividers that made them extend into walkways, compromising escape routes.

We took some of the existing Dividers and created two new reduced size units from each. This still gave them a good size to allow for a decent writable surface and to ensure a better fit into the available space. We were able to repurpose the writing surface, and just add new custom printed ends and wheels. This provided a cost effecctive solution.

The cost saving was extended to another office where they had increased the fit out space. As luck would have it in one block they needed exactly the same sized configuration, which allowed for economy of scale.

The client was able to demonstrate that they were meeting targets for sustainability, as well as reducing expenditure by recycling and adapting.

Logovisual really understood our brief and made some great suggestions to make our designs come to life. They helped us bring a child’s game from a small tin to a life size piece of experiential, for us to take in to store at John Lewis. Everyone loved it. Thank you guys.

As a product, they really provide a varied functionality to aid in our brainstorming and project works. These mobile whiteboards have really been an excellent investment and are immensely popular with our staff.

ZOE HARRIS, CBRE GLOBAL INVESTORS

Logovisual had as I believed to be the simplest and hassle free job on the project, install of white boards. They were in and out within 3 hours, a job well done!

THE PROJECT TEAM, OVERBURY PLC

The product itself is superbly built and easy to manoeuvre around with the attached wheels. From the office team’s communication before our event to the delivery team’s installation and pickup I found everyone to be really helpful and very professional going out of their way to meet our deadlines. I would certainly recommend logovisual.

SHAUN O’HARA, SAATCHI & SAATCHI WELLNESS

We were looking for a new “canvas” to share information and encourage joint thinking. The Thinking Wall turned out to be the perfect solution. There’s room to be expansive and for things to have real impact. The service we received right from our first enquiry, to installation (very fast, very painless) has been excellent.

STEPHEN CROWE, SCOTTISH FUNDING COUNCIL

We were pleased with the high level of customer service, our order was dealt with quickly and efficiently and we are thrilled with the finished product. The custom whiteboards that are exactly as we had envisaged them.
