Vandal proof touch screen for public locations

VisualPlanet provides PCAP touch screen solutions for public places. A PCAP overlay can be laminated to the back of any glass pane to turn it into a touch sensitive surface.

PCAP overlays have a number of benefits:

  • Robust: PCAP overlays work through glass up to 10-millimetres thick to protect the LCD screen from damage. Your touch screen has reduced downtime, requires less maintenance and provides the maximum return on investment.
  • Reliable: VisualPlanet’s interactive foils work in hot, cold and wet weather. The touch screen operates reliably in harsh environments all year round to maximise utilisation of the display. PCAP overlays are suitable for use with enclosures rated up to IP68.
  • Bespoke: VisualPlanet manufactures PCAP overlays in a range of sizes and shapes. Choose the best size for you, from a 15-inch overlay for an ATM machine to large format overlays for digital signage.
  • Engaging: As well as being rugged and reliable, touch overlays allow you to create attractive digital displays. VisualPlanet’s multi-touch foil responds to 32 touches at the same time. Interactive screens increase customer engagement and provide new revenue streams for your business.
