What types of plastic front panels does Gravic offer?
Gravic offers a wide choice of front panels so that you can ensure the correct finish for your products while preserving their properties. Our flexible or rigid front panel cutouts ensure your devices are protected, while guiding users (by adding iconography for example) and contributing to your brand image (screen printing of your logos, colours, etc.).
Once your front panel is ready for use, Gravic provides you with a wide choice of rigid front panel decoration. These are designed to be resistant to liquids and scratches while remaining highly customisable, making them a complete solution for the creation of your front panels: design, cutting, screen printing.
What are the specifications of Gravic’s front and rear panels?
In order to find the front or back panel that best suits your criteria, Gravic offers a wide range of specifications to its customers that take into account the particularities of their products. In addition to the choice of material (polycarbonate or polyester front panel, metallic back plate, etc.), you can adjust the finish to obtain the desired visual effect: gloss, grained, matte or satin. The rigidity of your front panel will be linked to the material chosen as well as to its thickness: if you do not know whether a flexible or rigid front panel is best suited to your product, our experts are available to help you with your choice.
Visual and tactile functions are also available for the vinyl, Plexiglas and polycarbonate front panels: smoked coating for LEDs or backlighting, embossing for push buttons, anti-fingerprint coating, etc. We can thus offer high quality and fully functional front panels such as, for example, automotive dashboards and counters.
