WetKeys Launches New Waterproof ABS Plastic Computer Keyboard that Looks and Feels Like a Traditional Keyboard to Improve Hand Hygiene Everywhere
New washable rigid plastic keyboard with improved typing performance can replace all ordinary computer keyboards in any office, government or home use to improve hand hygiene and reduce the spread of disease
WetKeys Washable Keyboards (WetKeys.com), the company that offers easy-to-sanitize, sealed computer keyboards and mice, today launched their new model of professional-grade rigid plastic keyboard specifically designed to improve typing performance yet maintain their standard of waterproof, washable and easy to disinfect computer peripherals. The KBWKABS104-BK full-size computer keyboard with 10-key number pad is the company’s first traditional-looking keyboard designed to be used by “Everyone, Everywhere” when an ordinary rigid plastic keyboard might be preferred.
“We decided to make a great keyboard that anyone would prefer to use because it feels good, works great, and is faster to type with so that you can just get on with your work without even noticing that it’s waterproof, washable and helps prevent the spread of germs,” stated David Malo, Chief Technology Officer of WetKeys. “Our entire line of waterproof computer input devices was originally created for special uses such as medical, dental, food processing and industrial or outdoor applications, but this new keyboard is a better choice for everywhere you’d need to do a lot of typing as in law firms, government offices, schools, call centers, research facilities, or even at home. Keyboards in each of these areas still need to be washed and sanitized regularly to keep users healthy.”
“Upon first using the keyboard, one notices the unusually smooth, quiet key travel action and the traditional layout; no odd key placement requiring the user to re-learn high-speed touch typing, it feels instantly familiar yet better,” said Kevin Meadows, Technical Sales Support at WetKeys. “Modern keyboards keep getting smaller, thinner and cheaper-looking, but this one maintains the ‘heft’ that makes it feel substantial and stay put on your desk – it’s obvious this keyboard will last a very long time.”
Key attributes of the KBWKABS104-BK keyboard include:
- Quiet, short travel keys for faster typing and less disruption in open office environments
- Traditional full-size layout with 10-key number pad, no need to retrain your typing style
- Fully waterproof, washable and immersible for deep cleaning to prevent the spread of germs and disease
- Chemical Resistance – allows regular use of disinfection and antibacterial agents
- Extension feet for angle adjustment to reduce repetitive motion stress
- Quick disconnect cord with included USB extension cable
- Extremely long-lasting durability designed for high traffic facilities such as universities, government offices, hospital administrative areas or anywhere intensive typing is required
The new KBWKABS104-BK keyboard pairs well with their newest waterproof mouse with touchpad scroll, model OMWK0C03-BK, which introduces an innovative touch sensitive slider bar that’s fully sealed beneath the silicone shell so that it can be washed and sanitized along with the keyboard.
Computer users in most environments prefer to use a traditional style computer keyboard and mouse, and regular disinfecting of computer keyboards can reduce risk of cross-contamination. Where most keyboards are not designed for frequent cleaning with disinfectants, WetKeys® and SaniType® keyboards are waterproof, washable and made from materials that withstand constant exposure to hospital-grade disinfectants.
The new ABS plastic rigid full-size keyboard is the perfect complement to the complete line of medical computer keyboards from WetKeys and SaniType that are essential to maintain clean and sanitary computing environments helping to prevent the spread of colds and flu. Using ordinary antimicrobial cleansers to kill germs and prevent the spread of disease in office and home or medical computing is as easy as “Spray-Wipe-Spray” with any common disinfecting spray cleaner.
