Bank teller custom keyboards and keypads

Banking custom keyboardWe have established ourselves as a market leader in Europe for the design and manufacture of custom keyboards in the retail banking sector with our emphasis on compact, robust and ergonomic design.


The integration of other data capture devices in these keyboards reduces counter top clutter and cabling. As a result they have also become popular in other sectors with similarly limited desk space, such as airports and airlines. Standard options include MSRs, cheque and smart card readers, pointing devices and biometric log-on functionality.


Keyboard considerations


Counter Space

The majority of the applications we satisfy have a pressure on the amount of space available to the keyboard. As a result we have become expert at providing compact designs, with full function keyboards as small as 27cm by 14cm.


Integrated Functionality

The integration of various data capture devices into the keyboard provides reduced cabling, less counter-top clutter and simpler installation and maintenance overhead.

A number of devices can be integrated in the the keyboard including: magnetic swipe readers (MSR), pointing devices, such as touchpads and smart card and biometric log-on capability. OCR (optical character recognition) and MICR (magnetic ink character recognition) options are available to read E-13B compatible documents.


Ergonomics and Operator Efficiency

The increase in legislation and sensitivity to operator health and safety has raised the priority of good keyboard design. By working alongside many blue-chip multi-national banks, we are familiar with the latest international requirements for health and safety. Care in selecting key and legend colour combinations can significantly assist users with a visual disorder or those visually impaired. In addition, the use of coloured keys improves accuracy and the speed of data entry.


More on key colours and implications for the visual disorder



Significant investments are made by our customers in their brand, and their brand image can be carried through to the keyboard as simply as adding the corporate logo or as far as matching the keyboard housing and keytops to the corporate colours.



Reliability is built in to all products as standard. This begins with the use of high quality key switches that are designed to withstand 50 million operations. Contact is made half way along the key switch's 4mm travel, providing a high quality and responsive feel to the operator. All keyboards are built around a robust steel frame providing a strong back-bone to every design.
