Understanding Gasket Mounted Structure: Top Keyboards With Gasket Mounted Structure In February 2023

Lately, all the new releases in the Mechanical Keyboard category have a common highlighted feature, Gasket Mounted Structure Design. But do you know what is Gasket Mounted Structure? What does gasket mean? And most importantly why has it become an important feature in the latest-generation Mechanical Keyboards? Well, today we are here to bring you a guide on the topic of Gasket Mounted Structure Design. We will surely answer all the above-mentioned questions related to this feature, and we will also list some of the latest top-selling products that feature a Gasket-Mounted Structure Design!! So what are we waiting for?? Let’s begin with the most common question that goes around.

What is Gasket Mounted Structure Design?

As we all know a mechanical keyboard consists of several different components including a mounting plate, multiple padding foam layers, hot-swappable sockets, etc. Mounting structure design actually refers to the way the keyboard plate or the PCB is placed in the said keyboard. Mainly for Gasket Mounted Structure design, the keyboard plate is fixed between the top cover and bottom plate with the help of a gasket material(Usually soft poron pieces). This structure gives the keyboard a more cushioned feel because the keyboard plate doesn’t come in contact with other metal parts of the keyboard.

How Does a Gasket-Mounted Structure Help?

A Gasket mounted keyboard will have a more cushiony, soft feel upon key press. Since the keyboard plate is practically suspended between the bottom and top covers, every keypress will give a soft feel on the keyboard and also won’t apply much pressure on the plate either. The keypress is more silent, and more comfortable on a Gasket Mounted keyboard compared to a regular screw-mounted design. In regular screw-mounted design, the keyboard plate is screwed on either the bottom or the top cover using metallic screws. This applies pressure on the plate which also reduces its durability. Gasket Mounted design provides a softer, smoother, more comfortable typing experience and at the same time is more durable as well.

Can we have some problems with Gasket Mounted Structures?

In terms of typing feedback, acoustics, and overall typing experience, a Gasket mounted keyboard is always better. The only con or disadvantage of a Gasket Mounted design would be its cost of implementation. Usually, Gasket mounted keyboards are a tad bit pricier than regular keyboards. The difference is not much and is probably worth it when it comes to overall typing experience with the keyboard.

Now that you have understood the meaning behind “Gasket Mounted Structure”, let’s go ahead and we will showcase some of the top-selling keyboards with Gasket Mounted Structure as one of the main features.
