Offer turnkey products thanks to our back plates

 

Membrane keypads are equipped with electric switches that allow the user to activate or deactivate certain features. You must have a supporting surface when switches are used in this way: support is crucial if you want your membrane keypad to work properly.

This utilitarian component doesn’t have to take away from your product design, though. Our design teams can create back plates that are made of different materials with various finishes and surfaces that will make your membrane switch shine.

 

Back plates for all of your membrane or capacitive switches

How to choose a back plate

Choosing a back plate to integrate into your control panel is not a decision to be taken lightly – your choice will play a significant role in the quality of your user experience.

First, this component should be as flat as possible and not have any bumps. Otherwise, it could cause the membrane switch to activate and allow liquid to seep in, which would negatively affect your product’slifespan.

In terms of aesthetics, let your imagination run wild! Our design teams offer customizable shapes and finishes for an ergonomic product that stands out. Tell us about your creative vision and our experts will take care of the rest!

Aluminum back plate

As the most popular material for back plate design, aluminum offers no shortage of advantages! These rigid panels are available in a wide range of options: bare, painted, anodized or chemically treated.

Injection-molding plastic housing

These back plates are popular in the medical industry: they’re made unique by a molded cavity that comes into contact with the membrane keypad switch. What’s their main advantage? They appear to be a seamless part of the keyboard, since their colour and texture is nearly identical.

Metallic back plates

Metallic back plates for membrane switches are often used in the industrial sector . Why? They are covered in a protective material that prevents corrosion and comes in different finishes and thicknesses.

Back plates and printed circuits

Looking for the best solution for your portable or miniature equipment? Printed circuit back plates are the perfect solution, since they are more lightweight. They are frequently used in radio controller design and much, much more!
