How Are Chameleon Whiteboards Constructed?

Chameleon Whiteboards are manufactured with the following components:

  • Magnetic white board
  • Wood or Anodized metal framing
  • UV, Mar resistant plexiglass hinged cover
  • Magnetic Locks to keep the Plexiglass closed.  Threaded locks and Secure locks are also available.

  • Full color PVC graphic inserts
  • Holds up to three graphic inserts
  • Plexiglass with hinge can be replaced if needed

Are we supposed to write on the Acrylic or on the Insert itself?  Do I have to change the insert for every patient?

Chameleon Corporation specifically designed the Chameleon Whiteboard with a Dry Erase Plexiglass and Interchangeable Inserts to:

  • Our purposeful construction allows clients to write on the Plexiglass (not on the Insert) as the Plexiglass erases perfectly clean and does not stain, shadow or ghost
  • The Inserts do not need to be changed for every new patient.   Our Interchangeable Inserts are only swapped or replaced when there is a communication need change such as an alternate language or any other reason calling for a change in the pre-printed insert content.

Why Plexiglass and PVC Graphic Inserts; couldn’t you use glass, plastic as well as cardboard or paper inserts?

We could use less than premium components but have chosen not to for the following reasons:

  • Plexiglass is the most durable of glass and plastic and is less susceptible to breaking, shattering or other damage
  • Plexiglass will last for 10 to 20 years where plastic will need to be replaced every 1 to 2 years
  • PVC inserts are durable, will not fade or discolor over time and most importantly can be cleaned if exposed to infectious disease or other elements requiring cleaning.

How Should We Clean Our Chameleon Whiteboards? Can we write on the Plexiglass with Permanent Markers?  What happens if someone does?

Chameleon Whiteboards offer a variety of cleaning options.  The most common cleaning options are:

  • Wipe with a soft, clean lint free cloth or non abrasive disinfected wipes
  • Dry Eraser
  • Clean Water with a non abrasive wipes

*If using spray do not directly spray on the plexiglass or framing. If needed spray the cloth and then use the cloth to clean cover and frame.

You can write on the Chameleon Whiteboards with a Permanent Marker but it is not recommended as a best practice?  To remove permanent marker from the Chameleon Dry Erase Acrylic:

  • Use a Clorox Wipe to remove the permanent marker or
  • Removal of permanent marker is recommended by tracing over the permanent ink with a dry erase marker and then erasing as normal. This may take several attempts to completely erase.

Does Chameleon Corporation offer accessories such as markers and erasers?  Does the color of Marker make a difference?

Yes, Chameleon Corporation is proud to offer the following accessories:

  • Dry Erase Pens
  • A Magnetic Dry Eraser with pen holders to house the pens
  • Rolling / Locking Stands for surgery boards or other areas where wall space is limited
  • Porcelain Side Boards
  • Corkboard Side Boards

After evaluating several different types of marker inks and colors, we have found that a dark black ink is the most easily seen marker color choice for use on the boards and it is also the easiest color to clean from the boards.   To this aim, we highly recommend only the use of black markers.
