Tough switches for harsh environments

Vandal resistant switches

External switches and keypads are essential parts of many systems in use by the public and by business – from door operation on public transport to access control systems. Using inferior quality switches can result in accidental or deliberate damage, rendering your system unusable until a replacement is fitted, and costing your business time and money.

Sealed switches for damage-proofed systems

At Acal BFi we work with a range of leading manufacturers to offer you a complete range of switches, panels and technologies to ensure that your system runs perfectly every time. Using a variety of methods and meeting key standards, you can be confident that our switches meet your needs.

  • Vandal-resistant – stainless steel and quality front-panel sealing make switches far less vulnerable to deliberate damage.
  • Ingress-protected – rated from IP66 to IP69K, our toughest switches protect your system in the harshest of conditions.
  • Illumination – we are able to provide sealed, illuminated switches for designs where switches need to be differentiated or for low-light conditions.
  • Durable materials – we supply switches in a range of materials, so whatever your application we will have a hard-wearing switch that fits your specification.

Switches from leading brands

We source our switches from some of the world’s leading innovators in this area, including ITW, Schurter, Bulgin and IGT Industries. Excellent working relationships with these manufacturers mean that we can supply you with sample products and demonstration kits as well as expert engineering support, and liaise between you and the manufacturer so that you can find the exact solution for your needs.

We can also offer bespoke design and integration with complete assemblies, along with panel fitting with gasket mounting to protect your assembly. Working with you, we can source, store, label and deliver these switches to you in line with your production cycle, helping you to be as efficient as possible.
