A company in Middletown, Connecticut wanted to extend the capability of their popular multi-room audio system to allow keypad control from outdoor locations. To make the keypad weatherproof, they required a transparent seal that would permit reading the legends on the buttons, facilitate through-seal operation and be easily integrated into their keypad design and be mounted to a standard outdoor electrical box.
APM designed a single-piece, crystal-clear, precision-molded silicone rubber seal that nests neatly into a perimeter groove of the keypad's front plate assembly. This pliable, UV-tolerant seal permits easy viewing of the keypad legends, operation of each button through the seal, tolerance to weather/dust, and molded-in recesses for the mounting screws.
