Altinex, a leading manufacturer of Signal Management Solutions®, is pleased to introduce Custom Match. Custom Match marks the creation of a brand new customization process for matching the appearance of the company’s various interconnect units—such as the Tilt ‘N Plug (TNP) and Pop ‘N Plug (PNP) Series—to the color or pattern of the surface that the interconnect unit is to be installed into. The result is seamless aesthetic integration into the surface, be it a solid color or a pattern.
With a short lead time of just 10 days, Custom Match can be applied on any type of surface flush bezel. The scratch and stain resistant surface enables the interconnect box, when in the closed position, to blend seamlessly into the pattern of the surface the unit is installed into. Surface types include granite, marble, wood, concrete, soapstone, and travertine. Further, many more surfaces can be custom matched to one’s exact specification. Every Custom Match unit’s surface is sealed with a scratch resistant epoxy polymer that is impervious to spills and typical countertop contamination.
For the integrator, the Altinex Custom Match process is easy. When a small piece of the counter-top material is provided, it is used to create the final artwork that is to be placed on the bezel of the interconnect box. This ‘magic’ happens in the artwork department and, once completed, the high resolution image is applied to the surface of the bezel and color matched closely to the original sample provided by the customer.
Jack Gershfeld, President of Altinex, commented on the company’s new Custom Match offering. “With Custom Match, AV professionals can create an interconnect solution that blends seamlessly into the aesthetics of the boardroom or meeting space,” Says Gershfeld. “When units are closed, the Custom Match finished interconnect box matches the surface of the counter so well that it is difficult to notice it even being there. The process of adding any type of image pattern to the bezel enables us to custom match any surface for a flawless and, in many cases, invisible installation. When combining this capability with the UL rating for kitchen and bar counter-tops, the design possibilities are endless.”
