1.I chose to buy from SSP as, when sourcing the Visitor Book, your site was one of the main ones to come up. I also liked the choice of different sizes, prices, orientation (eg portrait or landscape) etc of what you could provide.
2.Having received the book and backboard I ordered, I am very pleased with the quality and professional look of these products. Unfortunately, as this is something new being introduced to our Reception, I have not had the go-ahead from management to start using these yet.
3.The ordering process was simple, clear and straight-forward and the order arrived exactly when expected and was securely packaged.
4.I cannot see any areas necessary for improvement in your service and would be very happy to use you again.
5.I did not deal with a particular individual, it was all done online.
Rating: 5/5

1.We have plenty of Tamtorque clamps but needed some more power bits, I did a Google search, browsed through a few results, one wouldn’t sell bits without selling the clamps, but we have plenty already, so I continued the search and you had a good price and very good customer reviews.
2.The product is as expected, exactly what we needed.
3. Price is good, no hassle, easy to order, reviews clear to see.
4. I didn’t get a confirmation email after ordering, which I kept meaning to double check but never got round to. I was about to check when I received the email saying the order was out for delivery, but it was about a week later. So maybe an automated email at the ordering stage – I did check my junk folder but still didn’t see one.

SSP Dual Touch-Free Press to exit button with timer and Door Release Break Glass Unit

SSP No: 12745

RRP £36.75 (£44.10 inc vat)

NOW £35.90 (£43.08 inc vat)

The SSP touch-free infra-red switch is designed primarily for use in hospitals, doctors surgeries, food production plants and any other buildings where high levels of hygiene must be maintained. This dual unit also has a secondary ‘break glass’ function to permanently release the door in the event of an emergency. This reduces installation time, wiring complexity and gives the client the tidiest possible finish.


Bacteria and germs can easily be spread by more than one person touching the same object. This is certainly the case for exit door buttons which are regularly used to gain entry into controlled areas of the building. However, with SSP’s touch free button, the operator simply needs to be wave his or her hand in front of the unit. Using infra-red technology the switch mechanism will be activated. If configured correctly this will release the door for a pre-determined length of time to allow the operator to pass through it (set between 0.5 and 20 seconds).

Set the distance range:
This infra-red touch button can sense movement up to 1metre away. The sensitivity/range can be adjusted as requested by the installer

Set the integral timer
Once a hand is waved in front of the unit this button can be set to release the door for the number of seconds that you require. For example, if the button is some distance from the door, once activated the release mechanism can set to keep the door unlocked for, say, 5 seconds to allow the person time to open the door.

Seen in the dark
Even in a darkened corridor, this switch discretely lights up so it can be easily located

Power: Can be run off either a 12 Volt or 24 Volt DC supply
Size: 85mm high x 85mm wide x 28mm deep
Load: (Max) 220VAC
Voltage:  < 30volts DC/AC
Timer: 0.5 - 20 Seconds



The lower half of this unit mimics the feel of breaking glass without the owner having to go to the cost and trouble of replacing the glass once it has been depressed. Being 100% re-usable, all the owner/operator has to do is simply insert plastic key provided into the front to reactivate the unit.

You can easily tell when button is activated
Invariably when this break glass unit is activated it permanently unlocks a door until the unit is reset. To draw the attention of the a responsible person, an LED light will flash, a yellow line will appear on the unit and a buzzer will sound (buzzer can be set not to activate if this is a step too far for you or your client). To reset, simply use the key provided. Spare keys are available from the link below.

Prevent accidental activation
To prevent accidental activation of the unit and to deter malicious activation of the button, Door Release section comes with its own protective cover. This can be removed if you would prefer.

Voltage: 12vdc @ 15mA / 24vdc @10mA (Selectable)
Load: up to 4 Amp
Double Pole voltage free contacts


Reliable and durable
Button the touch free button and break glass have been tested to exceed 1 million separate uses

Size: 90mm wide x 160mm high x 42mm deep
Material: Plastic dome, steel plate, plastic back box

Delivery: 2 days on average
