Many people come to our website after searching ‘magnet school’ and it's easy to understand why. Small magnets are a fantastic tool for the education sector. Although care must be taken in relation to small children handling magnets.

Horseshoe magnets provide an iconic first encounter of magnets for younger children. However, it is with small strong magnets that the fun really begins. They provide a fun and engaging way to learn and play.

Electromagnetic devices create a magnetic field using an electrical current and they have revolutionised the world of technology since their invention. Housed inside every power tool or white good is a direct current motor. Powered by an electrically-abled magnetic field. These motors convert a current of electricity into mechanical power (force and movement). This may be something we take for granted today however this revolution in technology was brought about by the humble magnet.

Can I use any small magnet as a fridge magnet?

Yes, pretty much any small magnet can be used to create a fridge magnet. The key consideration is the ‘pull force’ or the strength of the magnet. Many of our customers wish to make fridge magnets out of small handmade creations. These look fantastic, however, it's important to remember that magnets that are adhered to a smooth vertical surface of thin steel won’t achieve the ‘pull force’ list on the product page.
The term pull force relates to the amount of weight a magnet can lift when adhered directly to 10mm thick steel. This thickness of the steel allows for full saturation of the magnetic field which is not possible on the thin steel of a fridge. It is also important to consider if you will be using the magnet to secure other items such as paperwork. This will create a gap between the magnet and the steel which in turn diminishes the magnetic hold.
For more information regarding the pull force or any other technical information please refer to our FAQ and Knowledge Base articles.

The Pull Force listed for each magnet is based on lifting 10mm thick steel from a horizontal surface. Magnets on a vertical surface (of 10mm thick steel) are generally able to hold around only 30% of the pull force listed in the product description. This is due to the effects of gravity and the lack of friction between the surface and the shiny magnet. Read More
