Industrial Keyboards – Metal / Vandal Proof

Metal keyboards are used in areas requiring protection against vandalism. This especially applies to places where information terminals or info points are freely accessible to the public. As they are mostly unsupervised and available 24 hours a day, these so-called self-service kiosk systems are exposed to the great danger of mechanical impacts due to vandalism.

The advantage of metal keyboards used as data input devices in public space is that they are serviceable for a long period of time. Being equipped with a metal front panel and metal key caps, they do not only resist mechanical impacts occurring on the surface. As the bottom side of the key caps are provided with a lip, they cannot be levered out.

Moreover, the majority of the models provide an increased IP-protection level which additionally protects the keyboard against dust and liquids.  This way, e.g. beverages which have been spilled over the keyboard, or dirt which reaches the device, cannot damage the electronic system of the keyboard.

Application areas of Metal keyboards:

  • Kiosk systems
  • Self-service machines
  • Service terminals in public spaces
  • Points-of-Sale
  • Heavy industry
