what we do
General Product Categories
ADA Graphic Processes
Vomar Products offers three processes for raised copy and braille which meet ADA standards: The Inlaid Process, The Overlay Process, and The Applied Process. These three innovations offer many advantages over existing methods, such as photopolymer and applied copy processes, and can be combined with any product in our catalog. Utilizing large format digital printing offers many new exciting graphic applications when combined with these processes.
The Inlaid Process
The raised letters and braille are inlaid into laser cut openings on a matte finish background with .030” exposed above background (per ADA Standard). Components are inlaid into any color background, bonded to the substrate and cannot be easily removed or vandalized.
The overlay process
The overlay process uses a durable matte finish plastic material, formed under heat and pressure to create raised copy and braille. This integral material overlay provides ADA standards and vandal protection for the raised copy and braille, background colors, and graphic images.
the applied process
ADA compliant raised letters are applied and attached to any plaque surface with our proprietary heat and pressure bonding process, creating an irremovable and vandal resistant product. The braille is inlaid with our standard inlay process and is compliant with ADA standards.
The Transportation Grade Process
Vomar Products manufactures a wide range of dimensional letters utilizing fabricated and solid cut-out methods in either illuminated or non-illuminated configurations. We use the complete gamut of materials such as aluminum, stainless steel, bronze, solid acrylic and other materials as appropriate for interior or exterior applications. These products are combined with our architectural graphic projects to achieve a turn-key process integrating the design intent of the designer and proven fabrication methods.
Our powerful digital imaging printing technology has enabled Vomar to produce full color images of any size for interior and exterior applications. We are able to print full color images and white on substrates of aluminum, stainless steel, acrylic and a wide variety of typical digital printing surfaces.
