Air switches, also known as pneumatic switches, are activated by a puff of air allowing the electrics to be kept at a safe distance from the user.
Our range includes; Air Switches, Bellows and Push Button Switches.

Air Switches have been part of our product range for many years. Many of their applications are in wet environments; using an air switch means that the electrics are not near the switch itself, this makes it safe for the user to activate the switch with wet hands/feet.
The switch will send a puff or sip of air down some PVC tubing which will activate the electric circuit.
Air Switch Applications
Some of the most common applications which use air switches are
Spa Jacuzzi controls - to switch the bubbles on/off; the user will be in the pool so it’s important that the switch is not electrical
Toilet flushes - you may have seen a Herga air switch on a public toilet to activate the flush.
Gymnasium/ health club shower systems - our push button switches have been selected for use in shower systems in gymnasiums. They are used to switch the water on.
