Whenever I goto Home Depot, I see their paint department using a regular old keyboard with paint all over it. My bet is that they have to replace the keyboard every other month. For dirty jobs like that where you will get a lot of dirt or paint on the keyboard, iKey’s Membrane Keyboard will fit perfect as it’s rugged and also comes with a nice rugged touchpad.
The new DT-5K-MEM-TP is an industrial membrane keyboard built to withstand the harshest of environments. Modeled after iKey’s popular 5K product line, this keyboard is manufactured with a hardcoated, textured polyester film that is more rugged than industrial silicone rubber keypads. The mechanical, snap-dome keys provide excellent tactile feedback. The integrated Synaptics touchpad is completely sealed under an extra layer of PVC membrane, which extends the life of the product. Since this keyboard lacks the crevices found between the keys of a regular keyboard, it is extremely durable and easy to clean. The DT-5K-MEM-TP is NEMA 4X certified, which means it can withstand directed hose water, disinfectants, environmental contaminants and heavy industrial use.
