Stainless Steel Push Plate Switches

Defining the standard in push plate switches

Larco's push plate switch products have long set the standard for looks, durability, budget and compatibility. Larco products offer superior form and function in all types of environments, resisting extreme weather and vandalism to provide a long-lasting door activation solution.

Larco stainless steel push plate switches are available in a wide variety of sizes and shapes, with standard and custom engravings. Choose from radio controlled and hardwired switches. Accessories and mounting boxes are also available.

6" or 4-1/2" round or square plates. Jamb style switches are 1-3/4" x 4-1/2".

Although the standard Larco push plate switch is suitable for outdoor use, push plate switches treated with a weather-resistant material are available for extremely wet applications. Add "W" in front of your part number.

Standard Engravings
Push plate switches are available with the standard engravings shown below. Right and left arrows and other custom engravings can be added to any push plate switch.

Sales Literature

Case Study

“Not only is your copper wall switch very aesthetically pleasing, it is very easy to install. I’ve received so many compliments from our staff and physicians in regards to not only how nice they look, but also the fact these switches are part of our campaign to help fight against bacteria that cause hospital-acquired infections. Their ability to combat bacteria 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, falls right in line with our culture of bringing forth the idea of ‘patient safety first’.”

Ed Harrich – Director of Surgical Services at Pullman Regional Hospital
