New Sophisticated and User-Friendly Range of Innovative Cover Plates and Switches Receives Remarkable Reception in US and Europe
New Bedford, Mass. - Imtra, a leading manufacturer of advanced LED Solutions, announced today the successful introduction of its new line of ultra-thin profile cover plates and switches, the Vimar Eikon Evo Switching System. Shown for the first time in the U.S. at the 2012 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, the streamlined and attractive controls for vessel lighting, ventilation and entertainment, as well as other appliances and onboard accessories garnered serious interest from designers, boat builders and the media. The Eikon Evo line elevates on-board switching to the highest standards in style, mechanical design and function. Since the Eikon Evo debut, specification requests and advanced orders for 2013 have exceeded expectations.
"Eikon Evo cover plates and switches are designed to stand out and be noticed - and based on the response we've seen from their introduction this fall - they have," said Colby Chevalier, lighting sales director, Imtra. "We are thrilled with the overwhelming interest we've seen from designers, builders and yacht owners, alike. The Evo line coordinates perfectly with the very latest interior design trends, and combines innovations that are exceptionally convenient and easy to control."
An ideal solution for discerning boat owners and captains, the Vimar Eikon Evo switches have a stylish square, symmetrical and flat profile, that projects only millimeters from the wall. Featuring elegant geometries, the switching system offers optional aesthetic details that house the controls including a distinctive chrome plated frame. Cover plate sizes are available to accommodate 2-module, 3-module, 4-module and 7-module switch configurations. Special combination plates are also available for vertical or horizontal mountings that accommodate two to four modules. The Vimar Eikon Evo Switching System from Imtra is backed by a three-year warranty.
The Vimar Eikon Evo product line is available from marine retailers, lighting specialty stores, boatyards and marine retrofitters throughout the United States and Canada, as well as online at www.imtra.com. Pricing is based on material selection and type of control devices. A typical Eikon Evo 3-module aluminum cover plate with frame, box and three switches has a suggested retail price of approximately $79.00.
