#5 - Instructions & Templates for Printing Data Cards



'HOW TO' TIP #1 - LAYOUT A BOARD DESIGN
Laying Out a Board Design

1. Sketch It
Start with a rough sketch of your board idea - it does not need to be a work of art. If you see one of our systems is similar (yet different), use it as a guide and modify as desired. Include symbols, logos, colors, etc. See
Customization Ideas for examples of what some other
customers have created.

2. Size It
Usually the board size is determined by the number of rows or columns needed for your        application and/or the size of magnets (or card holders) desired, or the amount of data to be entered on the board. For example, if you need 11 columns of 4" wide magnets, then your board needs to be at least 44" wide. Remember to allow 1" height and width for the frame - nominal dimensions of a 3'x4' board has 35"x47" available whiteboard space.

3. Fax It
Send your sketch via fax to us and we'll get back to you (usually within 24 hours) with a firm price to custom make your board. For estimation purposes, you may figure about $0.50 per foot for epoxy paint lining or per character of lettering.

4. Accessorize It
See Whiteboard Supplies and Other Magnetic Accessories for products such as:
                   · Write-on-Wipe-off Magnets & Damp-Erase Pens
                   · Magnetic Card Holders & Datacards
                   · Magnetic Symbols, Indicators, Letter & Number & Date Sets
                   · Dry-Erase Markers, Eraser, Whiteboard Cleaner

'HOW TO' TIP #2 - CLEANING A WHITEBOARD
Our magnetic panels have a heat fused, dry-erase surface. Although highly durable, these
surfaces can be degraded by excessive cleaning pressure, wrong cleaning materials, or
caustic cleaning agents found in some cleaning solutions. The surface is compatible for
use with both dry-erase markers and damp-erase pens.


Whiteboard Cleaning Instructions
        Read below or print a pdf sheet

Please follow these guidelines for spot cleaning and full board conditioning to maximize
board surface life.


Recommended Cleaning Solutions

Magnetic Concepts P/N # 90436 Whiteboard Cleaner
EXPO Whiteboard Care
Isopropyl Alcohol
Windex Glass Cleaner

Water

The above products are non-corrosive, non-abrasive, non-toxic and earth-safe in
formulation; but use in moderation and do not the saturate board surface. Any type of
abrasive surface cleaner (such as Comet, Zudd, Barkeeper's Friend, etc.) will obviously
cause degradation and should not be used. Also, never use solvents including acetone,
paint thinner or cleaner, nail polish remover, etc.

Cleaning Off Dry-Erase Markings


1. Lightly erase the surface first with a clean, untreated facial tissue, soft microfiber cloth,
or a Dry-Erase Eraser. Use only the flat surface of the eraser or the flat part of your hand to apply any pressure. Do not use the eraser edge or a fingertip when wiping as this may result in high pressure that could damage the board surface or graphics.
     Note: Dry-Erase Erasers that are used on a daily basis can build-up marker residue
     and may not clean properly. Our Eraser, Part # 90435, can be cleaned by rinsing
     under running water and gently rubbing the surface to remove any residue. Be sure
     to let dry completely (ex: overnight) before re-using.
Do not use abrasive paper wipers (such as brown hand towels), sponges, dirty wipes, or
rough rags which may scratch or degrade the board surface.

2. If residue remains, spray the residue lightly with one of the cleaning solutions above
and clean again with the wiper using the flat part of the hand. Do not apply concentrated pressure to remove residue. Stubborn dry-erase marker stains can sometimes be removed
by writing directly over the stain with a dry-erase marker and then lightly wiping with a soft wiper.

Cleaning Off Damp-Erase Markings

1. Use a water-dampened soft cloth or tissue to erase damp erase marks. Repeat with
clean wipes as needed, but without the use of excessive pressure.

2. Do not use a dry-erase eraser to remove damp-erase markings.


Damp-erase markers contain water-soluble inks which do not use the harsh solvents
found in dry-erase markers and are preferred for applications with either daily full board erasure and cleaning or for applications where the ink will not be erased for long periods
of time.


'HOW TO' TIP #3 - DETERMINING SIGN LETTERING SIZE

Sign Distance Chart

Match readability distance (feet) with the letter/number character height (inches).
          Character Size    Estimated Range
                    2"                         16'
                    3"                         24'               
                    4"                         32'
                    6"                         48'
                  10"                         80'
                  14"                       112'

NOTE: We recommend testing one sign with your order because lighting, display height,
and obstructions are unique to every facility.


'HOW TO' TIP #4 - ASSEMBLING AND MOUNTING

Whiteboard Mounting Instructions     Read below or print a pdf sheet

Wall Anchor Kit

Contains: two self-drilling anchors, two #8 x 1-1/4" screws, four self-adhesive bumps
Contact
Customer Service if an additional kit is needed.

Important Note: We do not warrant that these fasteners will be appropriate for your wall construction. It is your responsibility to determine the appropriate fastener for mounting.

These high quality wall anchors are intended for use in gypsum (dry-wall) type walls and are rated up to 135 lbs. shear force each. Our boards weigh about 3 lbs per square foot. If you have different wall construction or are uncertain whether these fasteners are appropriate, please consult with your maintenance department or a local hardware store to determine the best fastener and correct installation procedure.

Hanging Instructions

1. Your board is equipped with hidden wall hanger receptacles in the upper corners of the back side of the board. Determine the distance between the center holes of these hangers and mark the mounting locations on the wall to insert your anchors.

2. Using a #2 Phillips screwdriver, press the anchor into the dry-wall and turn clockwise until
it is seated flush against the wall.

3. Insert the screws into the anchors, screw in until about 1/4" clearance remains between
the anchor and the screw head.

4. Place the adhesive rubber bumps on the four corners on back of the board frame. These help prevent marking on the wall.

5. Mount the board onto the screw heads such that they are locked into the hangers. Test
the mounting to verify the board is securely locked into place and cannot become dislodged.

A line drawing of the unit and assembly parts is illustrated on the pdf sheet.

Hanging the Cabinet Unit

1. Rubber bumpers are shipped loose to prevent shearing during shipment and unpacking. Install on back of cabinet with truss head screws (provided) into the pre-drilled holes using a Phillips head screwdriver.

2. Chalk a horizontal line on the wall parallel to floor at desired height. Measure from the top
of the mounting bar to the floor.

3. Drill holes through lower portion of mounting bar (use correct diameter according to wall condition) and mount with screws (provided) and rawl plugs as required.

4. Lift cabinet unit above mounting bar, hold unit flush against wall, and slide downward until unit is resting on mounting bar. Let bottom of unit with rubber bumpers rest against wall.

5. With unit in place on wall, place bottom retaining clip tightly to wall and side of unit with finger pressure at the center of the unit, mark a pencil line on wall at bottom of angle.
Remove unit from the wall and install angle to wall using one 1" truss head screw through
the angle and into wall. Replace unit on top mounting bar with bottom resting on angle and secure angle to sill with one 1/2" truss head screw.

6.
For the adjustable door catches (top and bottom), the screws in each end may be
tightened or loosened to change desired tension.

NOTE: A 1" truss head screw is provided for attaching angle clip to wall.  If your wall
construction requires a different fastener, you are responsible for furnishing the
appropriate hardware.

.


Lift-Out Panel Mounting     Read below or print a pdf sheet

A line drawing of the unit and assembly parts is illustrated on the pdf sheet.

1. Align bottom track in desired position on wall with taller side of track against the wall.
Drill holes in track spaced across the track to accommodate your wall construction
(aligned with studs).  Mount to wall by screwing into studs or by using toggler or moly
type drywall mounts.

2.
Set panel board in bottom track and align top track with shorter side of track against
the wall and allow 3/4" space above the panel (Necessary to enable lift-out of the panel
above the bottom track lip). Drill holes and mount as with bottom track.

3. Insert panel into top track first, then set down to rest in bottom track.



Sliding Track Center Installation     Read below or print a pdf sheet

A line drawing of the unit and assembly parts is illustrated on the pdf sheet.

1. We have partially assembled the unit to ease on-site assembly. Layout all parts - print
the Parts Layout Identification pdf sheet
if needed. Mounting steps are:
      (A) Mount fixed back panel to wall
      (B) Mount hanging clips to wall studs
      (C) Mount back panel jamb trim and frame to clips
      (D) Attach frame to clips

2. Mount the fixed panel to the wall using egg-sized globs of adhesive spaced approximately 16" on centers. You will need to temporarily fasten or hold the panel to the wall until the adhesive dries by using temporary screws at the edges of the panel. If the location of this
unit is not intended to be permanent, you may wish to mount the panel to the wall with
heavy duty nails at the panel edges instead of using the adhesive. Confirm panel is level before holding in place.

3. Mount the top and bottom 2" mounting clips to the wall on 12" centers using fasteners appropriate for your wall construction. Note the clearances show between the top and
bottom edges of the fixed back panel and the clips. Be sure the clips are level.

4. Tighten nuts on roller assemblies at top of the sliding panels (if not already tight).

5. Position the frame assembly over the clips, drill 9/64" diameter holes through the frame
into the clips and screw (with screws provided) the frame into place. Note the sliding panels
can be removed from the front by loosening the roller nuts and sliding the panel out of the
roller assemblies. Push the panel up to allow tilting the base for removal. Reverse the
process for re-installation.


Sliding Track Roller Orientation     Read below and print a pdf sheet

Print out the pdf copy which illustrates a line drawing of the unit and roller alignment.

1. Enclosed with your package are six rollers.  These are what the panels slide upon.
Position the rollers as shown in the diagram on the pdf sheet.

2. The rollers should be positioned such that the openings face each other.  They slide
onto the ends of the top frame piece, at the ends, prior to affixing the panels.


Hanging Large Boards with L-Brackets     Read below or print a pdf sheet

1. Read and understand all instructions before installing board.

2. Hang board by corner brackets (attached to board) using the wall anchors and screws
provided.

3. Draw line along the bottom of the board. This will be the guide for attaching the
L-brackets.

4. Remove board from wall.

5. Attach L-brackets to wall making sure the brackets are aligned on the guide line in the
full down position. If the board is to be mounted to a stud, it is best to mount the brackets
directly into the studs. On walls without studs, place one clip 6" in from each end of the
board and evenly space the others between them.  Use the screw anchors provided to affix.

6. Place board back onto wall using the L-brackets for support.

7. There is a screw hole in the short leg of each L-bracket.  Hold the board firmly to wall
and mark the frame at each screw hole.  Drill 1/16" holes into the frame and then screw
the self-tapping screws through the L-brackets inot the frame to hold the board in place.


Large Wall Panel System Installation     Read below or print a pdf sheet

1. Lay out desired location and height for your wall system, and determine location of wall studs.

2. Determine location of bottom edge of board. Draw a level line on the wall at that height,
the length of the board system.

3. Attach L-brackets along line, positioned between studs, using drywall anchors and 1 ¼” screws. Make sure the 1” side of L-bracket is against wall.

4. Place board on L –brackets. This will balance the board on the wall.

5. Place bottom piece of frame over board and brackets. Drill 1/8” holes through frame along the center channel, into studs. Secure frame and board to wall, using 2-½” screws. IMPORTANT: If chalk tray is ordered, drill holes ¼” above center channel, on bottom frame piece only.

6. Continue attaching frame pieces, using process above, in order: Left, Top, Right.

7. On multiple board systems, the H-bar is simply slipped between the panels. You may
wish to apply some RTV sealer in the H-bar joints to prevent water or cleaners from leaking behind H-bar.

3. Before beginning assembly, read all assembly and mounting instructions.  Call with
any questions.

4. The most critical step in the installation process is mounting the scanner/printer unit.
If stress is applied to the sides of the unit box causing it to twist s;ightly, it will affect the
long mirror assembly inside and the board printer may not print properly or not at all.  The
main cause of stress on the box is overtightening or misalignment of the wing bolts on
the box sides which attach the unit to the wall mount brackets (or floor stand).  Upon
testing the printer unit, if you have partial or poor print quality, loosen the wing bolts and
see if that corrects the problem.

5. Wall Mount Units: It is critical to use the mounting template to place the wall brackets
onto your flat wall.  If the mounts are misaligned, the unit may twist and move the internal
mirror optics out of aligh causing partial or poor printing.  Usew inged toggle bolts to most
dry wall mounting applications (1/8"x2" size for most walls).  If printing is poor, loosen
wing bolts on the sides to check if that corrects the problem.
