Glass options for dishwashers
Decorative cover panels in dishwashers are an increasingly popular feature, combining sleek looks with new design possibilities. Other options include insulation glass units or glass control panels to incorporate numerous user-friendly functions and technical properties for a powerful combination of durability, control, safety, and design flexibility.
Glass plays a highly useful role in dishwashers, performing better than plastic in protecting capacitive switches and touch controls on the inside of the dishwasher door from water, heat and chemical damage. We can also incorporate printed control guides and touch-sensitive features, as well as knobs, frames and hinges into our glass products. Moreover, we have developed an innovative insulation glass unit that allows a perfect view into the dishwasher at the end of the cleaning cycle.
- Multicolor printing, including conductive printing for capacitive sensors for touch control panels and semi-transparent colors for special lighting effects.
- Wide choice of customized design options to complement wider product families.
- ‘Dead-front’ or ‘Shy Tech’ effects possible.
- Strong resistance properties to ensure long-term reliability.
- Precise processing to accommodate knobs, frames, hinges and design features.
