This is a guide to the different fixtures that have been made by Evans Lifts.

1919 to 1930s

These fixtures consist of black buttons, and the hall stations have a very old style to them. In the 1930s, the car station buttons were made to protrude less, and have more rounded edges.

1940s to 1960s

These fixtures consist of redesigned black buttons. Usually the hall stations will have an orange in use light.


These fixtures consist of square black buttons. The hall stations will have an orange in use light for elevators with controllers that only remember 1 call.

1980s to mid 1990s

After Evans was bought out by Otis, they used Dewhurst fixtures. They use the US81 square buttons without illuminating halo, and these buttons were arranged vertically on a thin car operating panel. On some elevators, there is a small LED dot-matrix floor indicator above the buttons.
