Control Panel Overlays

A Control Panel Overlay is a plastic fascia which is screen printed or digitally printed on the rear of a clear plastic substrate so that the printed detail is viewed through the front face.

Self-adhesive tape is then applied to the rear of the fascia and so when the overlay is applied to the product the printed detail is encapsulated behind the plastic providing an extremely durable finish.

Industrial label overlays can incorporate a number of features such as clear window areas for viewing electronic displays, translucent & coloured led windows and high resolution graphics. Switch areas can be embossed so that mechanical switches can be activated through the overlay or holes can be punched to allow the switches and dials to be fitted within.

Selective textures can be incorporated into your design and GSM can colour match to any recognised colour specification including Pantone, BS and RAL. We can also print chrome and metallic inks to give your control panel overlay that extra dimension.

A comprehensive range of plastic materials and finishes are available for the control panel overlays and these include Lexan Polycarbonate and Autotype Polyester incorporating anti-glare, textured, brushed and gloss finishes. Also a range of adhesives are available to ensure that the right materials are specified for your particular application. With all our our processes and materials tested to ANSI specifications for UV stability we offer our products with confidence and guarantee durability.

The control panel overlay can be supplied assembled to an aluminium, steel or acrylic support panel incorporating PEM studs and stand-offs as required.

Using under-surface digital printing and laser cutting capability pre-production samples and low volume control panel overlay requirements can be produced without set-up and tooling costs, enabling designs to be modified during product development.

Control Panel Overlays are bespoke, high quality graphic fascia panels used in many different industries and applications including Electronics, Medical & Scientific Instruments, Security and Marine.
