Most engraved stainless steel wall plates are often recommended for use in food processing plants, dairies, chemical plants, and other industrial, institutional, and commercial applications where corrosive atmospheres exist as they are made from an alloy that has superior resistance to corrosion. Stainless steel device covers can be engraved up to 5 gangs high and 10 gangs wide.
After the stainless steel device covers are engraved, they are re-packaged in protective film, together with their finish-matching screws and we take special care when shipping engraved steel wallplates as they can scratch and dent if not carefully packaged.
Types of Engraved Stainless Steel Device Covers
We engrave many types of stainless steel device covers and box covers, including switch plates, single and duplex receptacles, Decora, GFI, and more.
How We Engrave Stainless Outlet and Switchplate Covers
Laser engraving stainless steel device covers, wallplates, outlet covers, or receptacle covers, requires a marking agent that’s applied to the stainless steel to be engraved. The laser then hits the the steel and results in permanent black markings. When engraving multi-gang stainless steel plates, the area over each gang available for a line of text.
What We Watch Our for When Engraving Device Covers
Attention is required when engraving stainless steel device covers because the mounting holes take up more area than is usually perceived. Engraving on the curved portion of the device cover results in a marking that is less readable and therefore less desirable. Modifications to the font, size or kerning of the characters can ensure that the markings are easily readable.
