BRAUMS proudly traded in Queensland as KVM Traffic for many years. It was decided in July 2021 to retire the KVM Traffic name and trade solely as BRAUMS Pty Ltd and align with the rest of the business across Australia. The name change does not affect any products or services. BRAUMS still has a QLD team ready to provide great service. BRAUMS still has a QLD warehouse stocked to the gills.
Best of all BRAUMS still has the same ABN, same bank account, same ownership and same address.
There are currently two models available; the Touch-Less Pedestrian Push Button and the Touch-Less Pedestrian Push Button with LED Wait Indicator. The LED Wait Indicator model offers all the features as the standard model with an additional LED indicator to reassure pedestrians that their call has been registered.
