Bakelite Plinths are a black plastic plinth dating back to the early 1900’s. Named after its inventor, Belgian born scientist Dr. Leo Baekeland, it has become widely used around the world. Since its invention, it has been associated with the awards industry amongst others.
It forms the basis of our standard black plinths.
Many of our Bakelite plinths can be upgraded to a solid Mahogany model. A Mahogany Plinth adds stature to any award. When fitted with the optional plinth band the plinth becomes an additional area for engraving.
This is a nickel or silver-plated band that fits snugly around the Plinth. Not only is this visually attractive but it also provides an excellent, replaceable engraving area. It is common for the plinth band to be replaced when it is full of engraving or the award is presented to a new winner.
The plinth band is often used as an extra area for engraving. It is common to use it on annual awards, where the winners’ names are placed yearly. These are often in columns and when full, a new column is started until the band is full. This can be carried out on plinth bands or on a larger sized base engraving plate.
