With a click of a button, we can log in to apps; we can have groceries delivered to our doorstep and can navigate to the very top of a building. Every day we communicate with devices, giving them signals through the touch of our fingertips. While digital buttons have certainly increased in the past decade, conventional controls are still used for many appliances, such as for elevators.
Most of us remember the pure and simple joy of pressing the elevator button as a child and the feeling of movement as it brought us to the next floor. Even today, most of us prefer conventional push-buttons over a digital screen in an elevator.
A large elevator manufacturer from Switzerland hired us to create a push-button with the correct haptics in accordance with their required design specifications. Our silicones have a wide range on the silicone durometer, which allows us to design buttons that aren’t only appealing in design but meet all your needs regarding haptics.
Get in touch with us today so we can provide you with more information on our wide durometer portfolio and how you can achieve the perfect haptics for your elastic parts.
