VI500 V.I.P.™ Series Solid Aluminum Lobby Panels

The Alpha Communications® VI500 V.I.P.™ series extruded aluminum (Vandal-Resistant) lobby panels are rugged, goodlooking panels for indoor or outdoor use.

Made of heavy 3/8" (9.5mm) thick solid extruded aluminum, the VI500 series is made to take abuse. VI500 panels are all custommade to your exact size and layout specifications and are designed for flush mounting. All four (4) edges are finished with a 45 degree accent bevel, to eliminate any sharp edges. Other options for the VI500 series include postal release switch (PO500I) built-in, CCD camera (CCDCAM-I), and a host of optional speaker/microphone and handset options.

All VI500 panels feature solid aluminum push-button plungers in a black anodized finish, with engraved apt. markings (right onto the face of the plungers). Where space allows, the building name/number is engraved at the top of the panel and filled with a black enamel paint. The use of Torx head screws makes it nearly impossible to tamper with the panel without the use of the special screwdriver tool.
