Customised touch foil for glass

Touch foils use projected capacitive (PCAP) technology to convert glass surfaces into touch screens. A PCAP foil is laminated to the back of a glass surface and can detect when a finger touches the front of the glass. Mount an LCD screen behind the glass to create a unique, interactive display.

As the originators of the TouchfoilTM product, VisualPlanet specialises in bespoke, large format touch sensors. PCAP touch foils are ideal for retail displays, interactive digital signage, touch screen wayfinding and more.

Interactive windows are ideal for increasing customer engagement and boosting sales. VisualPlanet’s multi-touch foil can be used by multiple people at the same time, so you can create the most engaging experience possible. PCAP displays work when users are wearing gloves, so people can use it in all weather.

VisualPlanet’s PCAP foils are extensively tested in wet weather and work in hot and cold environments. The foil works through glass up to 10 millimetres thick, allowing you to create vandal-proof touch screens for public areas.

VisualPlanet provides a two-year warranty and excellent technical support. Your foil will have a long, reliable life and maximise your return on investment.

Touch foil for glass is ideal for a variety of interactive solutions:

  • Interactive kiosks
  • Outdoor touch screens
