Emergency Shutoff Button and Facility Safety


The Emergency Power Off (EPO) button from STI is used as a safety measure to quickly disconnect power to equipment, or entire facility, in the event of an emergency. With over 1 million operations, rely on STI's Stopper Station push buttons.

STI's easy-to-use EPO Stopper Station push button allows a user to perform a calm, effective and confident action when needed. In the event of a disaster, it helps limit damage and makes it safer for rescue personnel to attend to the emergency.

The multipurpose push button is available in red, green, yellow, white, blue or orange. Its unique curved design helps stop accidental activation while allowing legitimate activations. Offered with emergency power off or customized labeling (in virtually any language). Switch options include: Turn-to-Reset, Key-to-Reset, Key-to-Activate, Momentary or Weatherproof Momentary.

Optional illumination allows users to easily find the STI Stopper Station push button in a dark corridor. Choose to illuminate as a status light (always on) or select a color change when activated (i.e. glows green then red when activated).

Several tough polycarbonate protective covers with or without siren are available. Buttons are listed to UL and cUL standards, ADA Compliant.
