Touch Foil technology has transformed the street-level marketing space. It meets today’s consumers where they are and how they understand. Touch Foils give the customer/consumer the ability to control a “larger than life” interactive experience at street-level where they can not only experience it themselves but have others watch and learn along with them.
Multitouch foils have a micro-wire grid pattern in between layers of film. When applied to a non-conductive surface, the foil will pick up touch input through that surface. Typical applications are a storefront window or a piece of acrylic for display. This gives you the ability to create street-level, interactive retail window displays.
Leave a lasting impression on consumers with a memorable, interactive and engaging experience that can be in-store or even on the storefront itself.
At ProFoils we have produced some of the world’s largest interactive Touch Foils for the world’s largest companies’ product launches, tradeshow displays and learning centers. Touch Foils are incorporated as a way to bring something new and different from the normal digital signage applications.
Multitouch foils can be used with many display devices and applications.
Indoor and outdoor kiosks become an interactive kiosk with all the electronics safely behind the face of the kiosk glass, leaving no exposed technology to the elements or users.
Rear Projection Films are a perfect fit for Touch Foil applications. The Rear Projection Film applies directly to the rear side of the Touch Foil you have applied to your surface. Now you have a floating, interactive surface on almost any window, drawing the attention of walk by traffic to your window to learn about you and your services, give you their contact information and even purchase items directly from you existing glass windows.
Tradeshow displays have been a popular use for Touch Foils. The one thing needed in your tradeshow booth, when everything else at the show is begging for the consumer’s attention, is something that stops that person at your booth. Touch Foils give you the ability to turn traditional, digital signage into interactive displays with floating interactive images on a single piece of glass that seem to “just appear” with the ability to touch.
The wonder of where it gets the image and how it works through the glass….adds to the experience the consumer notices and they will actually remember — even in a space filled with attention grabbing gimmicks and free giveaways.
We can even remove glare and reflection from the user’s side of the glass, giving them a smooth, glare-free, easy-glide, interactive digital experience with our Anti Glare films.
Rear Projection Film makes amazing, one of a kind video displays on glass or acrylic. Integrating a touch foil will provide a thru-glass touch screen experience, right on your existing glass.

When you need an interactive, touch experience outdoors, often the only solution that has reliability, accuracy and ability to withstand the elements is a ProFoil. Touch Foils are used all over the world in Outdoor Kiosks, both large and small to provide a touch screen to outdoor displays.

For the Samsung S9 Launch in NYC, Samsung wanted something different for their flagship store — something unique and engaging to showcase the features and the power of the phone itself.
ProFoils created two custom-size Touch Foils for the project, both of which were very large. The touch screen provided the user the ability to experience the new S9 phone thru the glass. Learn more at the Samsung S9 Project Page.
When using ultra-high brightness monitors (up to 7000 nits) you need to consider how to provide touch screen interaction without the display causing interference. ProFoils have been successfully tested in many applications with High Bright Monitors.
The image to your right shows one of two touch foils integrated with 5000 nit monitors behind glass at the Wells Fargo Corporate Office and Museum in Philadelphia, PA.
Sometimes you want a touch screen when there is no need for a digital display. You may just need the ability to sense touch or gestures thru glass or acrylic for data logging or interactive triggers.
In the image to your left you will see how the Disney Imagineers used ProFoils to create a touch wall that engaged visitors during their time in line. This wall in Epcot, Orlando Florida had touch foils map touch points to the light panels to offer an engaging experience without digital displays.
Touch tables using Mutitouch Foils are able to provide a seamless, glass top surface with no need for touch frame bezels around the edges. This makes the surface spill proof and offers a sleeker, more “custom” look. This is often a better solution for touch tables than using a Touch Frame.
We have built touch tables as large as 90″ Diagonal as seen on the show Idiotest dual touch tables pictured on the right.

Touch Foils come rolled in a tube so shipping is cost effective. Everything you need to install comes with it along with a disk with drivers, USB cable and installation guides.
Touch Foil technology is amazing in that all of the components are installed safely behind the glass, acrylic, or other surface while allowing people to engage the screen through the surface by touching the surface itself from the other side. Touch Foil is approximately the thickness of a piece of cardstock paper, and although it is commonly referred to as touch foil, it is more appropriately called a touch film as it closely resembles a film rather than a foil.
An Interactive Touch Foil is almost completely transparent in color and can be installed with a holographic rear-projection film for use as a holographic touch screen on glass. Touch Foil technology is connected to the computer with a standard USB cable. Once you have installed the touch screen film on the glass or plexiglass, simply connect the board of the Touch Foil to the computer with the supplied cable.Learn More
