    Quality Control Panel Overlays: For Long-Lasting High Performance

    A control panel overlay is a plastic fascia which is silkscreen printed or digitally printed on the rear of a clear plastic substrate, allowing the printed detail to be viewed through the front face.

    Self-adhesive tape is applied to the rear of the fascia. When the graphic overlay is applied to the product, the printed detail is encapsulated behind the plastic providing an extremely durable finish, helping to extend the life-span of your equipment.

    Partnering With a Range of Industries

    Our overlays are completely bespoke, providing customers with high-quality graphic fascia panels used across multiple industries and applications, including (but not limited to):

    A Multitude of Features

    Our industrial label overlays can incorporate a number of features to suit a variety of functions.

    This can include clear window areas for viewing electronic displays, high resolution graphics and translucent and coloured LED windows. 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 also be incorporated into your design — our team can colour match to any recognised colour specification, including Pantone, BS and RAL. We can also print chrome and metallic inks to give your overlay that extra dimension and premium finish. 

    A Wide Range of Materials and Finishes

    Choose from many plastic materials and finishes for your overlays, tailored to your specific product requirements. This can include Lexan Polycarbonate and Autotype Polyester — we can also incorporate anti-glare, textured, brushed and gloss finishes. 

    To ensure your overlay is secure and stands the test of time, we also provide a range of adhesives. With all of our processes and materials tested to ANSI specifications for UV stability, have confidence in the industry-leading durability and resilience of our products.

    These products can be supplied assembled to aluminium, steel or acrylic support panels, incorporating PEM studs and stand-offs as required.

    Our experts use under-surface digital printing and laser cutting capabilities in pre-production samples, meaning low volume overlay requirements can be produced without any set-up or tooling costs. This enables designs to be modified throughout the product development process.
