The Problem:

Hospital Acquired Infection (HAI) is of growing concern in every medical facility and is a major focus of both medical staff and hospital administrators.   Design of all systems and equipment must take cleanability and sterilization into account and typical plastic or rubber access keypads are near impossible to clean and can definitely harbor bacteria or pathogens.

The Solution:

Our EVERSWITCH touch metal access control keypads have zero moving parts and no nooks, crannies or seams where germs could hide.  Keypads are cleanable to the point of actually being submersible.  The graphics are underneath the anodization layer and are therefore extremely robust and will stand up to disinfection and sterilization.  Our access control keypads are designed to work with all major security system protocols and can be used to replace any existing keypads.  We also offer custom versions that are anti-ligature with chamfered edges.

Derived Benefits:

IP-69K rated for washdown
Readily integrates with existing security systems
Dependable, time proven keypad technology
Hyper-rugged construction excels in high-use, high-abuse areas
Cost-effective with five year warranty
