Membrane Switches

Membrane Switches and Membrane Switch Panels are input devices that allow user interface with equipment hardware. 

At Hallmark Nameplate, we are proud to offer custom Membrane Switches, Keypads, and Panels featuring robust construction which is completely sealed from the outside environment. We manufacture membrane switches in both tactile and non-tactile variations, which support a wide variety of designs and applications.

Membrane switches are non-standard; each membrane switch is specially configured for your product specifications. Industries we serve include medical equipment, computer peripherals, and the military and aerospace industries. This allows a user interface with equipment while protecting the machinery from contaminants, environmental hazards, and debris.
