3.What did we get right? Quick delivery, super fast. Good pricing but high quality product.
4.What could we improve? My only improvement would be to show the sliders vs screw holes on the signs pre buy, to make it clearer which to pick.
Finally, out of 5 what would you rate us? Signs are excellent thank you, really pleased with them. Definitely a 5 from us!

1) What made you choose to buy these products from SSP Direct? I was looking for a large and sturdy plug cover for a plug near the floor that kept getting hit, and ended up finding your site through Google Images.
2) What did you think of the product? The product is very well made, It's sturdy and protects the socket very well. It drills directly into the wall and not just clips onto the socket like other products, which is much more secure. The edges are rounded and the whole front panel is curved so anyone who does catch it will not be injured. The internal depth is almost 11cm, so this is perfect for those with plug timers or other similar devices. Since I wanted to remove the plug without taking the whole cover off the wall I simply removed one of the fins from the backplate (As you can see in the attached image), however this is not the intended use for the product so I have absolutely no complaints.
3) What did we get right? Ordering process was quick and simple and delivery was impeccable. I ordered the product in the afternoon and it arrived the morning of the next day. That's faster than most other companies!
4) What could we improve? While installing the cover is pretty self explanatory for the most part, I would have said maybe include some simple instructions, however now I see that there is actually some on the website by clicking 'More info' and even a video. Very nice!
5) Is there anybody that you have dealt with that deserves a special mention in our team meeting? As I ordered online through the website I didn't actually have to deal with anyone.
I would rate both the product and the service 5 / 5. I would definitely recommend SSP and should the need arise for similar products SSP Direct will be the first place I go to.

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
