Keyboards – a dangerous zone

keyboard problem

Have you dared to take a closer look at your keyboard? It is very simple: carefully remove a key with a biro or a paper clip – and you will be amazed to see what is going on inside…

Keyboards and mice are an ideal environment for germs and bacteria. This gives rise to potential risk situations in hygiene-sensitive areas like food production or the health sector. It therefore makes great sense to use special keyboards and mice developed for these areas so that you can achieve the following results:

  • Protect patients and personnel from any pathogens
  • Protect your employees
  • Improve the overall hygiene situation
  • Prevent any nosocomial sicknesses
  • Guarantee that infections do not spread
  • Cleanliness and hygiene at public information centres too
  • Reduce patient treatment times and downtimes by reducing the number of germs

We can provide washable keyboards and mice to meet any requirements. The spectrum ranges from a water-resistant office keyboard to a fully enclosed professional keyboard for use in extremely critical hygiene situations.

Reports from a wide range of media underline the danger that keyboards can pose as a source of contamination
