Minimalist and robust by design, DARDO is the reference pushbutton
for lifts installed in more demanding environments, including high-traffic buildings and/or prone to vandalism.

A CLOSER LOOK
Its minimalist look should not be misleading: DARDO is a button designed for demanding, heavy-duty applications. With its extremely robust body and proven activation mechanism, DARDO fully complies with EN81-71 Class 1 European guidelines for the design of lift components installed in environments prone to vandalism.
DARDO was successfully tested in our laboratories for impact, water flow and fire resistance.
GREAT CONTRAST, BETTER VISIBILITY
The EN81-70:2018 norm requires that luminance contrast between adjacent surfaces shall be evaluated in numerical light reflectance value (LRV).
The black metal ring added around the DARDO frontal mount button provides enhanced luminance contrast to the surrounding faceplate.
When mounted on a stainless steel faceplate, the flush version of the DARDO achieves the correct LRV with its dark pressel.
The frontal mount version of the DARDO can be inserted in squared-shaped 36,4mm cut-outs. The metal collar is part of the button body and ensures optimal solidity.
DARDO most stylish version fits into square-shaped 33,6mm cut-outs. The pushbutton is back-mounted with studs and is beautifully flush with the faceplate.
Upon activation, both the raised symbol and the halo of the pushbutton light up in red or blue. White illumination is also available on request for some pushbuttons.
By default, all DMG buttons are available primarily with this basic illumination pattern.
The DMG Twin-lighting solution was introduced as a way to improve button visibility in darker cabins.
Twin lighting means that both the button halo and the symbol are permanently illuminated in WHITE when no call is active.
Upon activation, the halo and symbol illumination color changes from white to RED or BLUE.
Like all our pushbuttons, the Dardo can be matched to different contact modules:
Screw terminals contact module
The screw terminals contact module is good for all types of modernizations. It requires a conventional wiring during installation.
It is suited for installations where no acoustic call acknowledgment is required.
Screw terminals contact module
call acoustic acknowledge module
If an acoustic call acknowledge is required (compliance to EN81-70), the screw terminals contact module con be supplied with a separated small module generating an acoustic signal.
It requires conventional wiring during installation. This solution is suited for both car and floor applications.
Best solution for pre-wired fixtures allowing an easy and fast “plug&play” connection.
A JST cable must be added to connect the push-buttons.
Each DMG product goes through countless and meticulous tests to guarantee the best product on the market.
Our buttons have an average life of 5,000,000 activations, following one of our tests.
Choosing DMG means preferring high QUALITY and more excellent SAFETY.
