Buttons & Panels

It's easy for us to say "Just connect your own buttons, put them in a panel..." but not everyone wants to or can do that. Let us offer some help with your installation.

Illumniated if you like. Our favorites have black surrounds, clear plastic top, with a transluscent insert that we can provide in colors.

Electrically, our buttons are just like any other. Momentary contact, Normally Open, Single Pole, Single Throw. Physically they're tough, arcade-style buttons able to take a beating by thousands of fingers.

All panels are custom-made, special order. 
For a quotation, please provide size Height x Width, number and style of buttons, rounded edges or square edges, subsurface printing or no printing.  Buttons and Panels are priced separately.
We use quality acrylic plastic and precision laser cutting for exact dimensions and precise fit of the buttons. Panel Sizes up to 24"x36". The one on the left is about 10x10 which is the smallest practical size using these 1-inch buttons.

The acrylic (like Plexiglas?) is available in many colors. Let us know your color preference and we'll do our best to get it.

On the left is our Standard 10" 5-button Navigation Panel.
In the middle is a custom 12-button rack-mount panel used by a client to cue-up 3 machines during a theatre/media performance.
On the right is a custom vertical 2-button panel with subsurface lettering and rounded edges for surface mounting.

We prefer the Triangle and Round ones, but that's just our choice. We offer several styles including solid colors like you would find on arcade game machines. Please call us for details on other styles: small, square....

Button Colors
Some buttons are all solid-color plastic. The solid colored buttons are primary: red, blue, white, yellow, and green.

The Triangles, Squares, Small Round and Medium Round have clear plastic over a white piece. Frequently we'll just use colored paper or ink-jet white letters on a colored background to put under the clear plastic.
