Flipchart Easels

These products largely resemble whiteboards and are typically supported by a tripod. A flip chart pad is very often fitted onto a clasp or upper bracket, such charts are very often used for presentations. We have a great selection of flipcharts from top brands such as Nobo with savings of over 50% off RRP. We also have a great choice of flipchart pads available at discount prices.

Category Guide

At the end of the day these presentation products are little more than a board to support a pad of paper that is then written or drawn on, but, whilst not a particularly complex product, there’s more to them than you might think.

To help you choose the right flipchart for your requirements we’ve put together this handy guide to key features available.

Portability

If you take your flipchart easel with you to present at different venues then consider the weight and portability of your easel. These weigh around 10kg whilst other portable easels can weigh around 20kg. Make sure also that the legs are collapsible or telescopic to reduce the size you need to carry around with you.

Board Surface

All of these products can double up as dry wipe whiteboards. Most flipchart will accommodate an A1 pad measuring 841 x 594mm The main differences in boards are whether they are magnetic or not. Magnetic boards offer greater flexibility in use as you can use magnets to secure charts or diagrams to the board or magnetic ‘workflow’ shaped magnets to assist with presentations. All flipchart easels from Nobo come with a 5 year guarantee on the board surface.

Accessories

Ideally you should look for an integrated pen tray which will close to hold the pens and eraser whilst be transported. Make sure you use drywipe markers and not permanent markers as they will ruin your board.

Stability and mobility

The simplest and cheapest flipchart easels have three legs, 2 at the front and a stabilising leg at the back. In most easels, the legs are extendable to allow the user to accurately set the board height for presentations. At the top end of the range, there are easels with mobile bases such as the Nobo Barracuda which has five castors at the base allowing it to be easily moved around.

Flexibility & Usability

Some of the top of the range easels come with numerous extras such as telescopic side extending arms allowing users to display additional sheets of paper to each side of the main board. Others such as the Nobo Piranha have removable rulers allowing users to write and draw in straight lines.

We have flipchart easels from 5 Star and from the market leader, Nobo. Both offer budget simple tripod easels as well as multi-functional mobile easels on castors and with all the extras. If you’re unsure of which product to buy then please give the Office Allsorts team a ring on 0115 9455833.
