This is a list of different elevator fixtures that have been made by Elevator Products Corporation, or commonly known as EPCO.

Lexan Button Series

CircleLine CL

Formerly known as CL Circleline, these fixtures consist of a white button with a black number. The button lights up when pressed. These fixtures are different from Adams Survival fixtures. Possibly in the 1990's, these fixtures were redesigned, using a slightly different insert, and LEDs instead of light bulbs. Very few, possibly very early examples of the older version fixtures have green for up, and red for down for the hall stations. Around 2011, they removed the "CL" from the name.

There is also a third insert variant with a different font, which is most likely still made for replacement buttons for existing elevators.
