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

These buttons are round black buttons that do not light up.

Smaller black buttons

These buttons are round black buttons that do not light up.

Large white buttons

These buttons are large white buttons that have no ring around them, and light up.


1950s GAL indicators consist of a panel with numbers cut in it, with light bulbs behind the numbers, like most indicators of the time. It is possible that indicators were not originally options. It is unknown if lanterns were an option.


There are 2 types of panels. Jet Plus, now known as Jet II (basic fixtures shipped within 4 weeks), and B-Series (custom fixtures). Different buttons can be mounted on these panels.

As of May 2020, GAL is no longer manufacturing their own fixtures, so that means the Jet II and B-Series fixtures have been discontinued. They now have a partnership with MAD Elevator, the North American division of DMG S.p.A of Italy, to distribute their fixtures through Vantage Elevator Solutions. They are still selling replacement parts though.

Jet II round buttons

There were 3 types of round GAL Jet II fixtures made.

  • RWB (white button, black ring)
  • RBW (black button, white ring)
  • RWW (white button, white ring)
