When most people are in an elevator, they’re usually on autopilot, drifting off into space or thinking about their next meal. You can use this time to your advantage and impress your visitors with a beautifully remodeled elevator cab interior. A few signs that it’s time for an upgrade is if your elevator cab is damaged, has outdated features and needs a technology update.
It’s all in the little details and it’s important that your elevator represents your building or organization in the best way possible. And a renovated elevator cab can do just that!
Whether you’re doing some light remodeling or a full elevator makeover, there are a few things to consider.
This guide will walk you through everything you need to know about elevator cab interior remodeling.
Most elevator equipment lasts more than 15 years, but cabs can experience more wear and tear during their lifetime. This means it’s important to take note of when you need an upgrade.
There are a few key elements to look for when deciding whether to remodel your elevator cab interior:
When you start noticing these, that’s a good indication that it’s time for an upgrade.
When you’re contemplating a cab remodel, it’s important to factor in the smaller details. The more specific you are with measurements, finishes and materials, the more cost-effective and efficient the whole process will be.
When working with an elevator specialist, take into account these things:
Cladding is a process where a layer of metal is added to the surface of elevator interiors to cover scratches and dents. This gives a brand new finish to the existing stainless steel features within your cab.
Whether you are purchasing a self install kit from us or we complete the installation for you it is important that we have precise measurements to ensure the fit and finish is exact. This helps save time, money and effort and ensures your elevator remodelling goes smoothly.
There are situations where you may not need to clad over your existing finishes. Although we cannot remove dents from the existing stainless steel we can refinish and remove superficial scratches to give it that refreshed appearance, almost like brand new.
Just like any mechanical aspect of an elevator, it’s important to adhere to the current elevator safety code (B-44: Safety Code for Elevator and Escalators) when it comes to your cab interior design too. A few safety and code items you should ask about are:
For your elevator cab, you have two options: partial remodel or a full remodel. A few things to keep in mind are your budget and what parts need to be updated.
A partial remodel is a great option if you’re working within a budget and you only need a few upgrades. If your panels are scratched or dented or your ceiling light fixtures need to be replaced, then a partial remodel is a good choice.
If your elevator cab interior is dated, dysfunctional and has a lot of damage, a full remodel is the way to go. A full remodel includes brand new panels, flooring, ceilings and lights, handrails and buttons.
With standard interiors, you can browse a set collection of elevator packages and choose one that fits your building and vision. Select from a wide range of high-grade materials including plastic laminates, stainless steel and finishing options.
Make sure to review our standard elevator interiors brochure for more insight on our packages.
If you have a unique vision for your elevator interior in mind, you can work with an elevator design specialist who will walk you through all the materials you’ll need. You can create a custom elevator cab and select the floors, ceilings, handrails and panels. A custom elevator interior package gives you more creative control.
Our Cab Design Studio tool lets you choose your elevator interior configuration, apply materials and finishes and request budget pricing.
This is the fun part where you can pick and choose your elevator cab parts for your remodel. Before you start designing, you need to know the parts that make up your elevator, from the ground up.
Panels in an elevator are like the paint on the walls. You can choose from different colours, finishes and materials including laminate, stainless steel and mirrors.
A well-lit elevator interior and brighter ceiling can make visitors feel more comfortable and safe inside the cab. It adds to the general atmosphere and makes your elevator look cleaner.
Elevator flooring can be forgotten, but it ties the whole cab together. It’s important your floors are sturdy and level so your passengers can ride with ease.
Handrails are a key part in elevator cab design. Not only do they support visitors but they help prevent large items, including luggage, packages and backpacks, from damaging the panels. They are available in a range of sizes and are made from brushed stainless as well as coloured stainless steel.
Planning your budget allows you to decide your needs versus your wants. It helps narrow down the available options to the most feasible ones for your project. If you are looking to cut costs, try pre-manufactured standard packages instead of custom options.
Done right, remodeling your elevator cab interior is a great investment that will last a long time, add value to your building and improve the atmosphere for your guests.
When you’re considering an elevator cab interior remodel, make sure you have a clear budget and determine which parts of your cab need an upgrade. Cab remodels bring your elevators up to code compliance, can improve safety features and technology and give the interior a fresh look.
Now that you understand the remodeling process, you can take your elevator interior design to the next level. Our specialists at K-Elevator are here to bring your vision to life and elevate the passenger experience.
