Company Background

Our Story

Smarter Surfaces is a world leader in providing surface solutions with different functionalities to a global range of customers. In 2009 company founder Ronan Clarke developed Smart Wall Paint, which turns any flat surface into a reusable whiteboard. This was in response to a customer's request for a room to be lined with whiteboards which was expensive, difficult and costly to ship. The subsequent success of this product led the company to continue its intensive research programme to deliver functional wallcoverings, paints and plaster to our global partners and end-users.

Experienced international marketer Denise Doran, joined Ronan to scale the business in 2013. Today, the multi award-winning and global Smarter Surfaces is a recognised innovator in the commercial wallcoverings sector.

Product Range and Collections

Smarter Surfaces has been consistently involved in extensive research and development since the creation of Smart Wall Paint. This product went on to win multiple awards including FM Office Product of the Year by the European Office Products Association, EOPA. In 2015, our Connector range, offering magnetic functionality, including both magnetic paint and plaster, was a huge success. In 2016 we launched our range of functional wallcoverings, including both Smart Whiteboard Wallcovering and Smart 2-in-1 Wallcovering (Projector & Dry Erase).

Our versatile products can be applied to a number of surfaces in commercial settings including: walls and desks, meeting rooms and offices, classrooms and even entire buildings. Each can be transformed into collaborative and productive working environments.

In 2018, Smarter Surfaces is launching its first range of functional films. Unlike our finished productions (functional wallcoverings, plaster and paints), other manufacturers can now take advantage of our dry erase and magnetic layers to incorporate into their office and school furniture, partitions, screens and more.
