This is a list of Hyundai elevator fixtures.


Square or barrel buttons

In the 1980s until in the early 1990s, a lot of Hyundai elevators used either square or barrel shaped buttons with a protruding metallic square frame and a red illuminating number or symbol in the middle of the button.

Round buttons

A very rare button variation. These are white buttons which lights up entirely and has a black frame. These buttons resembles a bit like the buttons used by Mitsubishi and Westinghouse (in the United States) elevators in the 1980s.

Floor indicators

Hyundai mostly used floor indicators with digital segments displays. For the exterior floor indicator there are two triangle shaped hall lanterns. If the hall station has a floor indicator, there would be two small triangle shaped arrows above the floor indicator. There was also an analogue-style hall floor counter (which resembles 1970s-1980s Mitsubishi analogue floor counter), but this is very rare.

These are barrel-shaped buttons made of glass with a silver halo and red illuminating number or symbol on the center.

Type 30

Type 30 buttons are metal barrel-shaped buttons with red illuminating number or symbol on the center. They can have braille on the buttons. Nowadays, these buttons are still offered, although rarely found.

Floor indicators

Since in the 1990s, most Hyundai elevators were using floor indicators with LED dot matrix display. Digital segment displays are very rarely used. On most floor indicators there is an AUTO, FULL and OUT OF SERVICE lamp. The AUTO word is always displayed when the elevator is operational.

Generic buttons

Some older elevators were using STEP EB210 series square buttons with red illuminating halo. Also, as mentioned before, some newer Hyundai elevators are using STEP EB960 under the name Type 21.

Other fixtures

Fixtures used on American Hyundai elevators

Hyundai elevators installed in the United States have two types of buttons; one is round white which resembles round Innovation Universal buttons, and one is a round solid metal with a red dot on the center but they are only being used on the hall station (it is unknown of those buttons are also used on the car station). Floor indicators are simple rectangular floor counter with red LED dot-matrix display.


In 1990s to early 2000s, Hyundai elevators installed have two stage chimes for upwards and one stage chimes for downwards. The chimes have two versions with varying pitches. The high-pitched chime is prevalent in elevators before early 2000s while a modified version of the chime is prevalent in elevators around 2000 to 2005. The modified version is available even in the newer versions of Hyundai elevators, although rare. Some elevators can only have one stage or two stage chimes in both upward and downward, or the chimes are shuffled unlike the default installation.

In Hyundai elevators installed around 2005, a four-stage chime is used. Although the chime is known to be used in elevators installed between 2006 and 2011, the chime was actually first used in Hyundai elevators that use Shanghai STEP fixtures. It is very similar to older SIGMA and Shanghai Mitsubishi chimes, though high-pitched.

In 2011 to present, Hyundai elevators have two versions of chimes. First is the new four-stage chime, a chime that sounds like being played in a piano. It is a departure from the high-pitched chime played in elevators from 2005 to 2011. The four-staged chime is played in both upward and downward travel. The second is a new two-stage chime more prevalent in elevators with large information texts in indicator (passenger, maximum load, etc). Like the first one, it is played in both upward and downward travel.

In 2016 to present, some Hyundai elevators installed by Shanghai Hyundai (outsourced) have very different chimes. The upwards chime is one-stage while the downwards chime is two-stage, reminiscent of Sigma elevators.

In South Korea, there are two standard versions of chimes available, a two-stage chime and a four-stage chime. It is played in both upward and downward. The old-generation chime available in Hyundai elevators installed w/in 1990s are available although it is rare. The South Korean chimes are available as a custom installation in other countries.
