A by-word for vandal-resistance for years

Vandal-resistant turned stainless steel pushbutton with illuminated target

PANZER at a glance

Robust look, minimalist design
Rock-solid design, tested for vandal-proof requirements of EN81-71 Class 2 (more..)
Pressel AISI 303 turned stainless steel (standard or PVD-coated finishes)
Frontal mounting (no studs), fastening by jam-nut

Its minimalist look should not be misleading: PANZER is a button designed for demanding, heavy-duty applications.
With its extremely robust body and proven activation mechanism, PANZER fully complies with EN81-71 Class 2 European guidelines to design lift components installed in environments prone to vandalism.
PANZER was successfully tested in our laboratories for impact, water flow and fire resistance.
See our resistance test.


The EN81-70:2018 norm requires that luminance contrast between adjacent surfaces be evaluated in numerical light reflectance value (LRV).
The black metal tag added around the PANZER frontal mount button provides enhanced luminance contrast to the surrounding faceplate.


The frontal mount version of the PANZER can be inserted in round-shaped 30mm cut-outs, fastening by the jam-nut ring on 0,8 mm to 3 mm faceplates.
Avalaible adaptation ring for cut-outs Ø 35mm.


Shape & Tags available

Can be matched to stainless steel tags with tactile Braille, to Caesar retro-illuminated stamped metal surrounds or to Brutus electro-coloured stainless steel surrounds.


Upon activation, the central led lights up in red or blue.
LED-illumination of target 12 or 24V AC/DC


Like all our pushbuttons, the Panzer can be matched to different contact modules:

Wire terminals contact module

Single Lighting

Good for all types of modernizations. Requires conventional wiring during installation.
If EN81-70 Beep is required, the additional PCB0BEEP module shall be added to the car panel and at each floor. Alternatively, the P8+BEEP contact module is suggested especially at floors.

JST connector
contact module

Best solution for pre-wired fixtures within the Pitagora 4.0 electric system.
A JST cable must be added to connect the push-button to the Pitagora 4.0 boards in the car (C40.COP14) and at each floor (C40.BDU).

contact module

Good for all types of modernizations requiring BEEP and new installations compliant to EN81-70.
Requires conventional wiring during installation.
The embedded beep device features +/-2dB BEEP signal when button is pressed.
