The Silicone Flat Covered Keyboard is Specifically Designed to Meet the Highest Standards

Required in Healthcare and Foodservice Facilities

 

Pleasant Prairie, WI, May 15th, 2018 – CHERRY, an undisputed market leader of computer input devices, announced the newest addition to its keyboard family, the EZClean™ KC 1000. The new EZClean™ KC 1000 is a wipeable, whisper-quiet, full-size keyboard designed to meet the high standards used in the ever-growing ever-demanding healthcare and food service industries.

EZClean™ KC 1000 solves two problems. Unsealed keyboards can be difficult to clean, and in specific environments are vulnerable to germs and bacterial growth, especially in the hard to clean areas between keys. Meanwhile, entirely sealed keyboards are easier to clean but aren’t as comfortable to type with on a daily basis. CHERRY’s new EZClean™ KC 1000 solves both problems, delivering the comfort of a non-sealed keyboard that is easily cleaned.

The new member of the CHERRY family comes with a smooth silicone cover fitting over a full-size keyboard (with numeric pad) designed to withstand medical disinfectants and food preparation sanitization agents often used in health and foodservice facilities. While easy to type on, the removable thin silicone cover delivers a smooth surface that is easy to clean and provides a barrier to keep germs and bacteria out of hard to clean places.

EZClean™ KC 1000 has an innovative flat top design, allowing comfortable and whisper quiet keystrokes. Compatible with both PC and Mac, the keyboard uses a plug and play connection that simplifies setup and configuration. The EZClean™ KC 1000 comes with four hotkeys and has been tested to withstand at least 10 million activations per individual key guaranteeing longevity and making it ideal for continuous use.

“Our main goal is to meet the ever-growing needs of our business partners – no matter the industry that they are in,” said Chad Vendette, Director of Marketing at Cherry Americas. ”CHERRY’s new  EZClean KC 1000 is the long-awaited keyboard that is here to strengthen the bridge between the sealed and unsealed keyboard categories. We are very excited to see our years of R&D blossoming in such a unique and target-specific offering.”
