This is a list of Haughton as well as Schindler Haughton elevator fixtures.

1920s to 1980s

Vintage black buttons

Some Haughton elevators installed in the 1920s or possibly 1930s had black buttons with rounded edges. The hall station buttons protruded from the panel. The car station buttons had lettering next to them.

Black buttons

A lot of early elevator companies made black buttons some were the same some were different. Haughton made two types of black buttons. One type was for hall stations only, and had large buttons with rounded edges. The other type is small black buttons, and square edges. The name of this fixture line is unknown. Note that all Haughton fixture line names, except for M-Series, are only for the buttons.

Haughton L Series buttons

These buttons are round. There are four versions. The first one protrudes from the panel, and is a mushroom shaped button. The second one is flush/recessed into the panel, and is a flat button. The third one protrudes from the panel, and is a flat button. The fourth one was only used by late Schindler Haughton elevators, these but were different from the previous versions of L series because these buttons were smaller.made out of a different kind of plastic and had a somewhat transparent surface. These buttons also had several different fonts than the previous versions.

Haughton L Series vandal resistant buttons

A lot like the regular L series but the number in the middle lights up with a metal background. These buttons are very rare and have been only seen in the Schindler Haughton style panel. It is unknown if Haughton made these but Schindler Haughton have made these.

Arrow call buttons

Not much is know about these call buttons other then they were made by Haughton and they would light up green for up and red for down.


Haughton lanterns/indicators have no model name, only part numbers. Haughton made two types of lanterns. One is a normal arrow, and the other is a narrow, tall arrow. Haughton made two types of indicators. One is numbers cut into a metal plate with light bulbs behind, and the other looks very similar to Haughton L-Series buttons.

Rotodial indicator

Haughton made rotodial indicators, similar to some Otis rotodial indicators. These indicators are for hall stations only.

IEE style indicator

Haughton made an indicator like Otis's IEE indicator. This indicator has yellow numbers that light up showing the floor that the elevator is on.

LCD floor Indicator

Schindler Haughton used a floor indicator that was LCD. Schindler Haughton's LCD floor indicators came in a dark blue/dark purple and brown. The brown indicator sometimes looked purple on camera.

Also known as M-Line for later Schindler installations in the 2000s. There are two types; one is a touch-sensitive and one is a push button type. They are the same as the ones used in Europe and Asia Pacific. M-Series were found in some Schindler Haughton elevators installed in the 1980s, before ASME A17.1 started.
