Smart Magnetic Wallcovering creates a magnetic surface.

Magnetic surfaces are typically used for planning, project management, meetings, presenting information at a glance, and for information that is updated regularly e.g. sales charts, project updates, schedules and rotas.

For best results, we recommend using neodymium or rare earth magnets only.

Q: Can Smart Magnetic Wallpaper be applied on any surface?
A: Smart Magnetic Wallpaper is designed to be applied to any reasonably smooth surface. It can also be applied to curved surfaces.
Ensure any loose material from previous coatings or wallcoverings have been removed.

Q: What should I use to apply Smart Magnetic Wallpaper?
A: You must use a heavy-duty ready mixed wallpaper adhesive. Use a roller to apply the adhesive to the wall. Apply two good coats. Additional adhesive may be required at the edges.

Q: What direction should I hang the wallcovering?
A: Smart Magnetic Wallpaper can be hung horizontally or vertically, depending on your preference. If you only wish to cover a portion of the wall, we recommend hanging horizontally, beginning half a metre off the floor.
