This is a guide to some fixtures of C.J. Anderson & Company.

Late 1920s? to present

Standard fixtures

It is unknown when C.J. Anderson first made elevator fixtures, but it might have not been since they were founded, and they did make elevator fixtures in the late 1920s. In the past, C.J. Anderson labeled their fixtures Series 1-6 in the late 1920s?-1930s, which is still used today for their classic antique fixtures. C.J. Anderson does not use design names since the 1930s. Rather they base the fixture's name off of the description of the device, such as HHR being a series HH button (1" diameter black button with white halo) and "R" being round. From the 1950s to the 1980s, C.J. Anderson has been making several types of buttons, which included the HNR, NNR, HHR and NHR round buttons, along with the HNS, NNS, HHS, & NHS square buttons. From the 1980s to the present, C.J Anderson has also made their VX series vandal resistant buttons, including VXS, VXB, and VX-EX, and the VX fixtures are now the standard for C.J. Anderson's elevator fixture lineup.

  • HNR: 3/4" diameter illuminating white button
  • NNR: 3/4" diameter non-illuminating black button
  • HHR: 1" diameter black button with white halo (was very popular, and resembled Otis Lexan buttons)
  • NHR: 1" diameter white button with black halo (custom made, and was similar to the HHR, but with reverse color scheme)

Classic Antique fixtures

C.J. Anderson has been making classic antique fixtures since the 1980s, and are available in six ornate designs. These fixtures are solid cast, made out of brass, bronze, or aluminum. These fixtures were based off of the 1910s C.J. Anderson fixtures. C.J. Anderson also refurnishes these and other vintage fixtures.

Series 1

Classic Antique faceplates that are solid cast rectangular faceplates with rounded top and bottom designs, and are very popular, as well as being available in standard and painted finishes.

Series 2 - Architectural Historic

These fixtures look similar to the Series-1, but have an egg-and-dart beaded border, deeper profile rounded top and bottom designs, and bear a close resemblance to the antique Otis architectural fixtures of the 1900s to the 1930s, which is why these fixtures are very popular.

Series 3 - Victorian Gothic

These fixtures have rectangular faceplates with cloverleaf border and trefoil corner accents, which makes them ideal for historic and residential elevators in buildings from the Victorian time period.

Series 4 - Neoclassic Revival

These fixtures have rectangular faceplates with column border, and are used widely in financial, government, residential, and historic buildings.

Series 5 - Natural Accents

These rectangular fixtures have a unique rope border that can be made versatile enough to accommodate a wide variety of panel inserts and button designs, making them ideal for ADA compliant retrofits.

Series 6 - Classic Vintage

These fixtures are rectangular faceplates that are solid cast rectangular faceplates with layered straight corners and smooth border that compliments both Art Deco and modern architecture.
