JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Sept. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Seal Shield LLC, today introduced the SILVER SEAL FLEX(TM) Keyboard, the world's first keyboard that is fully submersible, dishwasher safe, antimicrobial and glows in the dark. Recent studies have shown computer keyboards to be a major source of cross contamination infections. According to Dr. Charles Gerba, University of Arizona, "the average keyboard harbors 400 times more bacteria than the average toilet seat." The SILVER SEAL FLEX(TM) Keyboards have been created to help reduce the risk of worldwide cross contaminations, including Norovirus and the "superbug," MRSA. SILVER SEAL FLEX(TM) is made from soft silicon for a comfortable typing experience. It is completely flexible and can be rolled up or folded, making it ideal for mobile applications. The SILVER SEAL FLEX(TM) keyboard combines SEAL SHIELD(TM) waterproof technology (Patent Pending) and Silver Seal Antimicrobial protection, making the SILVER SEAL FLEX(TM) the only silicon keyboard to be fully submersible, Dishwasher Safe and Antimcirobial. Unlike many antibacterial products, SILVER SEAL FLEX(TM) utilizes all natural, pure silver ions which are embedded in the silicon to create a safe, effective, inorganic, antimicrobial solution. The combination of SILVER SEAL(TM) silicon and SEAL SHIELD(TM) washable technology results in the highest level of cross contamination protection available in an input device today. The SILVER SEAL FLEX(TM) is also the first keyboard to utilize the company's new SEAL GLOW(TM) backlight and Quick Connect(TM) features. SEAL GLOW(TM) backlight can be turned on in low light or no light environments, allowing this portable keyboard to be used anywhere, any time. Quick Connect(TM) allows the keyboard to be easily washed without the user having to disconnect the cable from the computer. Quick Connect consists of a 6 inch keyboard cable connected to a separate 8 foot USB patch cable. Users can easily move the keyboard between multiple computers and customize cable lengths to support their applications. "The new SILVER SEAL FLEX(TM) Keyboard represents a combination of the best infection control technologies. Never before have so many features been included in a single input device," states Scott Filion, Seal Shield Vice President of Business Development. According to Filion, "There are many silicon keyboards on the market, but only SILVER SEAL FLEX(TM) Keyboards are dishwasher safe, antimicrobial, and backlit." The SILVER SEAL FLEX(TM) Keyboard sells for $49.99 MSRP. SEAL SHIELD infection control solutions are distributed internationally by CDW, CDWG, Corporate Express, DELL, Insight and other reseller partners.
