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.

External Waterproof break glass Gas Shut Off Button

SSP No: 15281

RRP £50.00 (£60.00 inc vat)

NOW £43.50 (£52.20 inc vat)

This popular waterproof break glass shut off button is specifically designed for use outside, or within harsh environments such as oil rigs, ships, factories and wash down areas.

This emergency over-ride exit is unique in that it 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 and turn the key to reactivate the unit.

How does it work?
The break button utilises a unique rigid plastic operating element and an over-centre spring mechanism. Upon impact, the unit immediately activates the over-ride or cut off mechanism. Once activated a warning indicator drops into view so the building's owner/operator can quickly identify which call point was activated. It can then be reset with the turn of plastic key (supplied with unit).

What does IP67 mean?
IP67 equipment generally relates to the connectivity market. An IP67 rating means this button is 100% protected against solid objects like dust and sand, and it has been tested to work for at least 30 minutes while under 15cm to 1m of water.

Electrical Arrangement
This call point incorporates two independent single pole changeover switches providing double pole changeover contacts. Easily accessed through the installer terminals as illustrated.

Current Rating (Series 02-04 & 11): 3 Amps 125 - 250V AC
Low Current Rating* (All Series):  1-100 mA 5 - 12V DC / 0.1 Amps 125 - 250V AC


  • IP67 rated for external use
  • Double pole changeover switch arrangement 
  • Includes back box and wall plate
  • Glass appearance maintains operator deterrence
  • Positive activation that mimics the feel of breaking glass
  • Visible warning flag confirms activation
  • Simple key to reset operating element - no broken glass
