“You can select the language, layout and even the color of the characters.”
We currently provide the following keyboard layouts: English (US), English (UK), French, German, Italian and Spanish. Please contact us if you require a different layout.
The letters are engraved and painted by hand. If you have any special requests regarding the color or font of the letters, simply let us know. We will happily customize your keyboard for you.
The design of the common QWERTY configuration was originally intended to slow down the typing process and prevent traditional typewriters from becoming jammed.
Although alternative layouts have since been developed, we have decided to stick with QWERTY because most people are familiar with this design.
“Maximum typing comfort thanks to a specially defined keystrokes.”
Gebr. Hentschel keyboards guarantee maximum typing comfort, thanks to their flat keys and clearly defined keystrokes.
During the development phase, we drew inspiration from the style of keystrokes offered by the very latest lightweight laptops. So now you can enjoy that same silky smooth feel when you’re working on your desktop computer, too.
The keys react immediately when you gently press down on the dedicated pressure points.
The short key travel – the distance a key has to travel downwards before being recognized by the keyboard – minimizes strain on the fingers and wrists, saving you energy and enabling you to type incredibly quickly.
“The flat design puts less strain on your muscles.”
While you type, the heels of your hands rest comfortably on the lower part of the keyboard. This reduces any strain on your arms and shoulder muscles.
The ergonomic keyboard lies flat on the desk, meaning your hands, wrists and lower arms form a continuous straight line. Soft rubber feet keep the keyboard securely positioned on your desk.
The most ergonomic position for typing is actually to have your fingertips below the height of your wrists.
Our flat design is a good compromise between aesthetics and functionality/ergonomics.
“Special rubber components minimize any typing noise.”
Our keyboards all feature a sheet of specialized rubber between the keys and the circuit board that provides maximum sound reduction.
The moving parts are also encased in rubber to further minimize noise emissions. Those rubber sockets are all applied manually.
“Connect to any sort of device. Now and for years to come.”
Gebr. Hentschel keyboards are suitable for use with Mac and PC computers.
Our products are designed to accompany you for life. If the electronics industry introduces new ports and connectors in the future (e.g. USB 4.0), we will be happy to adjust your keyboard accordingly.
The core functionality and layout of computer keyboards have not changed for decades – and are unlikely to change for decades to come.
The electronic components in our keyboards can be replaced and upgraded as required.
