They have long been standard in medicine only, but now they are more and more present in everyday office life: hygiene keyboards that are easy to disinfect. These hygienic keyboards offer dirt, bacteria and viruses significantly less attack surface and are easier to keep clean.
No matter how carefully you use your keyboard - dust and the smallest dirt particles can hardly be avoided in the spaces between the keys. The dirt also likes to get stuck inside the keyboard. Germs such as bacteria, viruses or fungi are particularly stubborn here. A superficial cleaning with a rag (or, out of the bag of tricks: with a post-it to clean the key gaps) does not achieve a really hygienic result. No wonder that an American study found a contamination rate of 97% for keyboards.
Hygiene at the workplace: Goodbye to germinator keyboard
Remedy here are fully sealed hygienic keyboards. They are available in many designs, made of glass, silicone or plastic. With numpad, touchpad, wired or wireless, in larger and smaller versions. So far, the hygienic keyboards have mainly been used in medicine, in the laboratory and in food technology, but are also suitable for hygienic text entry at the office workplace.
Easily clean the input device
Cleaning and disinfection are much easier with hygienic keyboards than with conventional office keyboards. Due to the fully sealed design, no germs get inside the keyboard. The keys are very flat so that the key gaps can actually be easily cleaned. The keyboards can also be completely immersed in water or disinfectant. Often, the input devices don't even have to be disconnected from the computer. Germs like bacteria and viruses really have no chance of getting stuck.
For use in the office, we recommend our silicone keyboards, which combine the best typing properties with easy cleaning. All of our keyboards are available from stock. Please contact us for further information and a specific offer.
