Abstract (en)

A pressure-sensitive switch device in the form of a flat switch mat is equipped with contact elements that upon loading, switch or interrupt a current line. There are damping elements (2) between the individual adjoining switch mats (1) and/or a frame profile in the edge region of the switch mat and/or a fixed wall limitation. The damping element is designed out of a hollow profile. The damping element has a plug-in peg of homogeneous material that can be inserted between a base plate and a cover plate of the switch mat. A conventional switch strip can be inserted into the hollow profile of the damping element.
