To help you choose the right flipchart easel 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. Lightweight flipchart easels 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 of the easel you need to carry around with you.Board Surface
All our flipchart easels can double up as dry wipe whiteboards. Most flipchart easels will accommodate an A1 flipchart 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

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.
