Keyboard Enters Healthcare And Food Service Markets

CHERRY’s latest keyboard, the EZClean KC 1000, is a wipeable, whisper-quiet, full-size keyboard designed to meet the high standards used in the growing healthcare and food service industries. 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 daily.


The EZClean KC 1000 solves both problems, delivering the comfort of a non-sealed keyboard that is easily cleaned. It 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.
