The Brief

York St John University was looking for a contemporary writing solution that would blend in with the modern decor of the London Satellite campus. The wall mounted Glassboards had been previously recommended by the York St John campus.


The Solution

TB Spaces provided the London Satellite campus with a total of 13 magnetic Glassboards with a high quality, dry wipe surface. Aside from the refreshing visual and contemporary impact that YSJ University were aiming for, they also provide an excellent writing surface. These Glassboards are manufactured from hardened safety glass conforms to BS6206, reducing the risk of damage in busy public spaces and dwellings.

The Glassboards were strategically placed and wall mounted by our expert Installations teams. The aim was to maximise the writing surface area for teaching and staff areas as well as student social areas without distracting from the smart and modern aesthetic of the building.

Total of glass writing surface provided – 13 (in various size options)


The Outcome

“The glass boards we ordered were on recommendation from our York St John campus.  Library staff suggested that they would work really well in the London satellite campus.  The Boards work much better than expected.  We have a very bright and modern building the glass boards are inconspicuous and blend well into our decor.  We really didn’t want something too ‘in your face’ and the boards are smart and contemporary along with being super fit for purpose.  The fitters could not have been more helpful.  Although we had a plan of where the 13 boards we ordered should be located, we needed to be a little more creative on the day in terms of where they should be placed to work best for teaching and for staff areas and student social areas.  We had classes on during the installation and the fitters were beyond flexible and worked around our schedule flitting between 5 floors to avoid disturbing our students.  No mess and no hassle, great job.”
