In high-rise buildings, elevators are one of the most used parts of the building. Their design can make a bold statement for visitors. When passengers are riding in an elevator, they have plenty of opportunity to explore the design and material of its interior. You want to make sure your elevator interiors are well-designed, practical, and adhere to all required elevator regulations.
Here are some helpful tips to create the elevator interiors you want:
#1. Know your design.
Regardless of how complex the design is, share it with your elevator fabricator early on. Let them know all the details of your vision as clearly as possibly. This way, they can give you recommendations for materials and technology that would best suit your design.
#2. Know your elevator must-haves.
When it comes to designing your elevator interiors, you must meet the standards of your local regulations. If you are in the United States, you must adhere to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). If you are in Ontario, you must adhere to the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA). You must also be aware of fire safety, weight limitations, and other regulations that you should discuss with your fabricator.
#3. Know your limitations.
Take a look at recent trends in design and architecture. In doing so, keep in mind factors like maintenance costs and material durability. You want your space to look be professional, stylish, and functional. Be realistic about the limitations of your dream design.
#4. Never hesitate to ask.
A good elevator fabricator will be there to answer your questions about your elevator interiors. Don’t hesitate to ask questions, as it will bring you one step closer to the product you desire.
