Front membranes – for protection and visual design

Front membranes are used primarily to protect the surface of devices, machines and plant. They resist dirt, scratches and abrasion , so they extend the operating life. Now enquire about your individual front membrane and protect your devices for the long-lasting operation!

A summary of the advantages of a front membrane at a glance:

  • We supply starting from a batch size of 50 units
  • Wide range of design options with one or more colours
  • High-quality materials and workmanship
  • Marking of machines
  • Reliable protection against dirt and water
  • Protection against abrasion ensures a longer operating life

High-quality operating membrane in daily use

With BOPLA you achieve effective protection of the surface structure of your plant and machinery by means of the cover with the front membrane or operating membrane. In addition to their protective effect, they can also be essential as a visual design element for the products you use.

The material used for the membranes is scratch-resistant and of high quality, so it ensures reliable protection even under the most difficult circumstances or against chemical influences. In addition, they resist water and other dirt and impurities. When devices need fast and frequent disinfection, front membranes offer an important advantage because the surface finish can be cleaned quickly and the cleaning agent does not affect the device.

As a rule, the material used for the front membranes consists of polyester membrane, but can also be made of polycarbonate. We also use a high-quality adhesive. A high-performance adhesive or transfer adhesive can be used for special applications. On request the print is applied by means of the silk screen or digital process. We print the operating membranes with your design or according to your specifications. For digital or silk screen printing we use a “mirror-inverted” method and print the inside of the front membrane. This protects the design or the marking of the front against dust and other influences .

What our customers say:

F.X. MEILLER Fahrzeug- und Maschinenfabrik GmbH & Co. KG / brehmermechatronics, Germany

BOPLA has helped us to implement MEILLER-related specifications and has given us excellent advice and support with regard to enclosure size, choice of seal and keypad design. For our next projects, too, we will make use of BOPLA’s enclosures and keypads.

Zitat FSP
FSP Prüfgeräte & Prüfadapter e.K., Essen / Germany, lamp testing equipment

As long ago as 2001, together with BOPLA we developed the first front panels with membrane keys. We supplied the design, and BOPLA then took over implementation completely. We say that one advantage is the enclosures’ long product cycles – this helps us to save on costs, because there’s no need for us to keep manufacturing front panels for new enclosures.
