Markerboards complement design
of new Athletic Academic Center
Markerboards created for this newly constructed academic center reflect the attractive design of the
learning environment. The boards were designed using satin anodized aluminum with a high profile
trim. The trim profile offers a writing surface that’s recessed from the aluminum trim surface, creating
a shadow box type design. The marker writing surface is a porcelain enameled steel laminated to a
half-inch MDF substrate.
These factory-built boards were shipped in two sections and joined on the job site to produce
24 linear feet (and 96 square feet) of writing surface.

Easel and tackboard blend into executive conference room
A Marsh Basket Easel was customized to reflect the new décor of an executive conference room that
had been remodeled by Seaman Corporation. The easel’s frame and basket, used to store presentation
accessories, were fabricated with steel using a Black Tuxedo powder coating finish. The 33 by 48-inch
board features a porcelain on steel magnetic writing surface on both sides. The board is framed with
solid maple hardwood, with a stain and varnish to match the room’s décor. Magnetic hook accessories
provide for the use of flip charts. The stand-alone unit is equipped with high quality castors to allow
easy movement around the room. Two of the castors lock to keep the unit in place.
The Tackboard, created for the same room, has a vinyl-covered surface designed to make it easy
to use push pins for presentations. The 15-ounce Class A Type II vinyl covering is from Koroseal’s
Corkstone pattern series. The board was framed with solid maple hardwood, also stained and
varnished to match the easel and room décor.
