This is a list of different elevator fixtures that have been made by U.S. Elevator Corp.

Square US Fixtures

The buttons are white square buttons. Later examples feature a number engraved in the panel next to the button. Some examples feature a 7 segment display for the indicator. These fixtures appear to have been made by EPCO for U.S. elevator, though the key switches were made custom for U.S. elevator. These buttons are very similar to EPCO FlushLine fixtures, now discontinued.

Circle US Fixtures

These were first launched in 1979, and they are white round buttons, with numbers engraved in the panel next to the button. Later examples feature braille next to the number. The lanterns are the same as the 1970s style. Some examples feature a 7 segment display for the indicator. Some very late examples have the Soft-Touch lanterns and dot matrix indicator. These fixtures appear to have been made by Epco for U.S. elevator, though the key switches were made custom for U.S. elevator.

Vandal resistant

The vandal resistant buttons from the 1980s are metal buttons with arrows/floor numbers, which light up when you press the button.

1990s

Soft-Touch

US Soft-Touch is the predecessor of ThyssenKrupp Aurora and ThyssenKrupp Signa4. These buttons came in flush and projecting. The projecting soft touch is the same kind of button as ThyssenKrupp Aurora and ThyssenKrupp Signa4. Early examples of the Soft-Touch fixtures also had different brailles, more similar to U.S. 1980s brailles, and door open/close buttons that were different, that were domed, and did not have a clear halo. U.S. Soft-Touch buttons were black round buttons with a clear halo encased in a square frame that would light up red when touched, and looked very similar to Otis Lexan buttons. The projecting soft touch buttons are the same as Thyssenkrupp Aurora and Thyssenkrupp Signa4 but Soft-Touch also came in different sizes, came in touch sensitive and flush buttons. The lanterns and indicators have been redesigned. Some earlier examples have the old lanterns, and/or a redesigned. but analog indicator. It is unknown if these fixtures were also made by Epco for U.S. elevator. Some Thyssen Elevators in Canada have the Soft-Touch fixtures installed. It is unknown if the same has happened in the U.S.

Vandal resistant

These fixtures are round buttons with a hole in the middle, which lights up when pressed. These resemble EPCO SSL fixtures, as EPCO key switches are sometimes used for some functions when these fixtures are used.
