Case Study: Zipwake Marine Electronics
Zipwake is a new Swedish marine brand fully committed to the enhancement of ride comfort and dynamics of performance boats. They approached Panel Graphic requesting an optical protection display window that would enable full sunlight readability on their smart ride controller.
Optiguard MarineAR™ Cast Acrylic was chosen due to its excellent salt water resistance, and high performance. The anti-reflection coating on the material is applied to both sides and enables full readability – even in the brightest direct sunlight.
The part has a machined rebate and black printed surround on the reverse side. All parts are supplied with Panel Graphic Qwik Peel™ tabs to aid fast and simple removal of surface protection foil, allowing clean and speedy assembly of components.
“Thank you for constantly improving your products and procedures. We feel that your company is one of the best we have worked with, very professional.

“Of all my instruments on the flybridge, Zipwake has the best viewability of all of them”.
…Exactly the target!” Niclas Olofsson Product Manager, Zipwake
