Braille Lines

Standardization and serial production are the reasons why our Braille line are cost effective and can be shipped short-term, sometimes immediately.

We offer four different standard lines with flat or concave tactile caps and with an interaction button (optional at Flat20 with two or none, at the P20 line also none – see downloads). The lines are not only assembled and tested but also equipped with a central electronic connection, and if requested with a metal tray for safe fastening in your device.

Prices and delivery time for larger quantities are given on request.
