Want to know more about Aluminum Clipboards

Most aluminum clipboards consist of anodized aluminum

Anodized aluminum is a durable, corrosion-resistant, electrochemically processed surface. The finish on anodized aluminum clipboards, consisting of stylish silver, gold, or black, becomes part of the board itself, so the finish doesn’t crack or peel. For added styling, the aluminum surface may feature a brushed or polished topping.

Medical professionals rely on aluminum clipboards

The traditional, iconic use of metal clipboards comes from the medical profession, with practitioners using them to hold charts and to jot down notes for patient care and treatment. Many of the hard writing surfaces are "over-bed" style, with a 1.25-inch offset bracket that hangs over the rails of patient beds or on clip holders at the ends of the beds. These aluminum clipboards are lightweight, and more importantly, are easy to clean and sterilize for use in medical offices or hospitals.

Field clipboards made of aluminum are for on-the-go professionals

Many professionals require writing platforms with secure clips for attaching papers and documents as they move from one working venue to another. Professionals need a way to write notes or refer to documents in the field and to keep them securely in place as they prepare the documents. These people include EMT and law enforcement professionals, teachers and coaches, contractors and surveyors, and municipal and utility workers. Students and others who attend lectures and meetings also find metal clipboards essential for venues without tabletops.

Metal clipboards hold different amounts of paper documents

Clipboards made of aluminum have one of two types of holding clips. One is a low-profile clip that holds up to 50 sheets of paper and provides a sleek writing plane. The other is a high-capacity clip holding twice that amount. Each clip consists of tension-mounted springs that are easy to maneuver in order to slide papers on and off the board, while also providing the holding power to keep documents intact, even in the most awkward positions. Medical and field clipboards are available in standard chart, document, and paper sizes, including 8.5 x 12 inches and 9 x 13 inches.

Aluminum clipboards are convenient and portable

Some students and professionals use storage clipboards as "mini desks" with inner compartments for holding paper and writing implements and outer layers with clips for writing surfaces. Others also have to carry books, large supplies, and bulkier items in backpacks, totes, or carrying cases, so they need narrower metal clipboards for greater convenience. These portable clipboards also come in memo-size models to save even more space in carrying bags.
