Elevators are built into many residential and commercial buildings and are probably the most-used feature of some. Hundreds or even thousands of people use the elevator every day but often overlook the elevator interiors. Many don’t know that the materials used can have a huge impact on a passenger’s experience.
Here are some of the benefits of different interior materials:
Including a mirror in an elevator can give passengers a quick chance to straighten themselves up prior to an interview, meeting, or a presentation. It’s a small detail that can make a world of a difference to someone and potentially change the outcome of someone’s day. In addition to this, mirrors can also make the space inside the elevator look brighter and larger., they are easy to clean, and can make any elevator look classy.
If permitted, having glass elevator interiors can be aesthetically appealing and will look great in any building. It offers your passengers a view while also easing the negative feeling of tight spaces. It’s also eco-friendly and helps you save on your electricity bill as they provide lots of natural sunlight during the day. If you're thinking about which option is best for your dollar and is environmentally friendly, then a glass interior would be best.
While the inside of your elevator can be made from almost any material, it would be beneficial to opt for a material that is fire-resistant and complies with weight limitations as well as cost efficient. One example would be stainless steel that offers unparalleled versatility and durability, while allowing you to achieve the design you desire. Stainless steel is resistant to rust, warp and stain compared to fabric or veneer materials. Ultimately, it tends to go with the designer's taste for the authentic appeal of an elevator interior.
Regardless of which material is used, with the right maintenance and regular service, any elevator can be the leading design feature of any building.
