VIP™ Series Stainless Steel and Brass Directory Units

The Alpha Communications® VIP™ Series Stainless Steel (Vandal-Resistant) directory units are designed to mount right on the surface of the wall. They are also available in a solid Polished Brass finish (add suffix 'BR' to model number). Made of heavy-gauge brushed stainless steel (or polished brass), the (VIP0XXD) VIP™ directories hold up to 10, 22, 32, 36, 44, 56 or 72 engraved (or blank) directory strips, protected by a polycarbonate window. For installations requiring more than 72 names, simply mount additional directory units side-by-side (or order custom-size directory units).

Installation is quick, easy, attractive and requires no back box. Name insertion and maintenance requires the use of a 'Star' type screwdriver tip. The use of 'Star' head screws makes it nearly impossible to open the directory without the use of the special tool (included with each directory unit).

The engraved strips are held in place by an extruded aluminum track, with a 'stop' on the bottom to prevent names from falling out, once installed onto the wall. The VIP™ directory units can be used in conjunction with lobby entry intercom panels, or as a stand-alone directory installation.
