WetKeys® Washable Keyboards Introduces New Flexible Keyboard with Touchpad
108T keyboard has been released after more than one year of heavy-duty field testing achieving reliable performance at half the cost of similar keyboards
Atlanta, GA (May 25, 2011)
WetKeys Waterproof Keyboards (www.wetkeys.com), a leading industrial keyboard manufacturer and online retailer of spill-proof and washable keyboards, announced today that its flexible silicone keyboard with touchpad (model KBWKFC108T), an industry first, has logged more than 1 year of heavy-duty field testing in food manufacturing plants and healthcare facilities achieving reliable performance at half the cost of similar keyboards.
The "108T" is a full-size silicone keyboard with a built-in touchpad and permanently sealed keyboard cover. The roll keyboard style is ultra-portable and, like all WetKeys products, completely waterproof and washable making it useable where liquids, dirt or germs would pose a problem.
"After a year's worth of data from outfitting hospitals, dental offices and major food manufacturing plants with this keyboard, we know it is a superior keyboard at the lowest possible price for its type on the market today'" explained Paul Lawrence, WetKeys' director of design and marketing. "Its fully sealed keys, touchpad and number pad meet or exceed
NEMA4x and IP68 standards to be resistant to dirt, debris and water, so it can easily withstand medical and industrial environments with repeated cleaning procedures. Moreover, its non-stick coating and low-profile keys are easier to wipe, have improved keystroke response vs. other silicone keyboard designs, and the touchpad eliminates the need for a separate mouse."
"As the economy recovers, companies like
Groupon® have thrived by offering consumers and businesses half-off deals, so we looked for ways to offer a full-size touchpad keyboard at only $59.99 - less than half the cost of a typical industrial keyboard, regularly priced above $130," stated David Malo, WetKeys' chief operating officer.
The company specializes in sealed, washable,
waterproof keyboards, mice, touchpads and related accessories that last longer than ordinary IT equipment allowing users to clean the keyboard regularly to reduce cross-contamination, healthcare-associated infections and sick days.
