Options for Custom Legend Plates for Varying Applications and Requirements

When it comes to custom legend plates for switches, push buttons, and any type of control panel, there are so many options available to suit different environments and requirements.

Here are some common features and customization options you can consider.

1. Hole Placement: Legend plates can be designed to fit specific switch or push-button sizes, such as 22mm or 30mm toggle switches. The hole placement ensures a proper fit for your equipment and helps to keep environmental hazards from getting behind the plate and damaging the adhesive or the equipment underneath.

2. Engraving: Laser engraving is typically the best choice for legend plates as it provides durable and long-lasting markings that keep their clarity and readability for the long run. Engraved plates are typically made from materials like stainless steel, aluminum or plastic, and the engraving process creates permanent text and symbols that won’t wear off like standard printing can.

3. Coloring: Legend plates can be colored to enhance visibility and aesthetics, typically when using anodized aluminum or printed plastic plates. You can choose from a range of standard colors or even request custom colors to match your specific requirements depending on the material your application requires.

4. UV Printing: Alternatively, legend plates can be printed using methods like UV printing on plastic and even some metals. This allows for detailed and colorful designs, including bold graphics and icons.

5. Materials: Legend plates are commonly made from durable materials such as stainless steel, aluminum, or high-quality plastic. The choice of material depends on factors like the environment, level of durability required, and cost considerations.

6. Protective Coatings: In environments where legend plates may be exposed to harsh conditions, you can opt for additional protective coatings. These coatings can provide resistance to chemicals, UV radiation, or abrasion, ensuring the longevity of the legend plates.

7. Customization: With Nap Tags, you have the option to fully customize legend plates to your exact specifications. This includes the ability to create the exact size, shape, text, symbols, and other design elements you need.
