Logitech has launched a washable computer keyboard, responding to hospitality businesses’ needs for computer equipment that can stand up to the rigours of a busy work environment.

Product details:

The K310 Washable Keyboard has been manufactured in a way that enables it to resist dust and allow it to be submerged in up to 11 inches of water or hand-washed in the kitchen sink without causing any damage. The keyboard is easy to clean and dry and it is also designed for a comfortable typing experience with a familiar layout and thin profile.

Drainage holes at the back of the keyboard allow for easy drying while key characters are laser printed and UV coated to help ensure the letters don’t fade in the wash. Plus, the keys can last up to five million keystrokes, meaning this keyboard can take a washing, as well as a pounding.

USP:

Durable yet comfortable, this full-size keyboard is suitable for any workplace, but because it can withstand water can be used in a busy commercial kitchen. It comes complete with F-keys and a number pad, and is compatible with Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7.

It also has 12 'hot keys' for instant access to the Internet, e-mail, play, volume and more. The keyboard also does not need software for setup, simply pull the device straight out of the box, plug it in and type away.

Price:

The K310’s suggested retail price is £34.99

Availability:

The Logitech Washable Keyboard K310 is expected to be available across Europe at the beginning of October 2012. For more information please visit www.logitech.com​.

Why you should buy it:

 “We’ve all experienced that moment of distraction – followed by panic, when a cup of coffee or a soda spills all over your keyboard,” said Sophie Le Guen, senior director of mice and keyboards at Logitech. “Because life and its messes will happen, regardless of how careful you are, Logitech designed the Logitech Washable Keyboard K310 to look and function like new, even over time.”
