These are black lozenge-shaped buttons with label on the center. Originally these were black buttons without illumination lamp. The call button station has a lozenge-shaped green lamp above the call button (often labelled as "LIFT COMING").

Floor indicators

Express Lift Series 1 buttons would also work as illuminating lamps for floor position indicators for most elevators installed in the 1960s. These lamps have green illuminating numbers.



Normal buttons

In the 1970s, the buttons were slightly updated, but the floor buttons were still not equipped with illumination lamp, except for the call buttons. Also during this era, call buttons are now available in two buttons instead of one.

This buttons are grey lozenge buttons with two small red lamp illumination on both side of the buttons.

Floor indicators

In the 1970s, Express Lift were using floor counters with illuminating numbers and arrows that resembles an Otis display.

IEE indicator

IEE indicators in Express Lift elevators would work exactly the same as Otis's IEE indicators. IEE indicators on Express Lift have rectangular glass display with illuminating numbers located behind the glass display. These indicators are extremely rare.



Oval buttons

These buttons are white glass lozenge shape with conventional bulb. Sometime in the mid-1990s, the buttons have red stripe on the top.

Square buttons

These buttons are rounded square shape that looks just like the oval buttons. They were introduced in the mid-1980s.

Floor indicators

Some early elevators in the 1980s were still using floor counter with illuminating numbers and arrows. Sometime in the mid-1980s, they introduced digital segments and LED dot-matrix floor indicators.



From the late 1980s to late 1990s, Express Lift uses stainless steel lozenge-shaped with red stripe below the button, or rounded-square buttons with illuminating halo.

Floor indicators

Floor indicators were long horizontal lozenge-shaped floor counter with LED dot-matrix display, some older ones simply uses square display with digital segments.

Generic fixtures

In some elevators, Dewhurst buttons are also used during in the 1980s[1]-1990s[2], normally the US81 series. Express Lift elevators installed under the Lift Upgrading Programme in Singapore during the 1990s were also using Dewhurst fixtures; mainly the US100 buttons and ULS47H LED floor indicators.


  • It is possible for second generation vandal-resistant buttons to be mounted on a 1970s Bennie Lifts car operating panel.
