Gemini, manufacturer of the Duets® line of premium plastic engraving material, has introduced Duets Accents™ a line of colorful, cell-cast acrylic sheet material that can be used for engraving, decorative accent or as a dimensional design component in wayfinding, ADA, and architectural signage. The single-ply material features an array of contemporary colors in transparent, translucent and opaque color choices.
“Duets Accents is a versatile material designed for use as a primary signage substrate, or for the creation of decorative accents or colorful dimensional backers for interior or exterior signage,” said Ron Gatz, Duets by Gemini Product Manager. The translucent and opaque color selections feature a non-glare, matte finish on one side and gloss finish on the other, while the transparent tinted colors feature a gloss finish on both sides that mimics the look of color-tinted glass. This material provides the appearance of colored glass with half the weight and vastly improved durability and safety against breakage.
“The wide range of colors, dual finishes, and material versatility let you design unique signs that match contemporary architectural aesthetics,” added Gatz. “Duets Accents can easily be paired with Duets Tactiles™ to create distinctive tactile signs, and dramatic dimensional effects can be achieved layering Duets Accents with mounting standoffs.”
All Duets Accents color choices are available in 1/8” (3mm) thickness, with selected colors also offered in 1/4” (6mm) for ADA-compliant signs. The material is laser and rotary compatible and comes in full sheets of 24”x 49” (610mm x 1244mm). The product is UV stable, equally suited for indoor or outdoor use.
Duets by Gemini engraving material and ADA substrate are available nationwide from the industry’s leading network of independent engraving material providers. To learn more about Duets Accents, find the distributor near you, or to request a free 6”x 6” production sample, visit DuetsByGemini.com.
