Alongside each plastic pushbutton is a name holder, made of BLACK flame retardant polycarbonate plastic with a transparent flame retardant polycarbonate plastic cover. Names can easily be inserted using paper tabs (supplied) or optional engraved plastic nameplates (model#AMNP). AM642 panels are available in a flush or surface configuration. Add the suffix \’S\’ to the model number for the surface version. Flush models require a flush back box (model #OH600 or#OH601). Surface models do not require any back box or housing.
