Elevator Interiors: Impressions Matter
Elevator Interiors: Impressions Matter
August 10, 2017

In business circles, first impressions leave lasting imprints. Almost 100% of the time, people who walk into your building will use the elevators. Therefore, the choice of elevator interiors must seek to enhance the experience of your clients and walk-in visitors. The individual interior components such as the interior panels, floors, ceilings, handrails, lighting, and mirrors, when professionally and aesthetically combined improve the atmosphere of the elevator car thereby enhancing the mood of the users.
 

Elevator interiors communicate your business culture strongly and therefore careful consideration should be given to the choice of material, designs, manufacturers, and craftsmen who work on your elevators.
 

These interiors are made using different metals and alloys depending on the purpose of building and client specifications. Custom finishes are available at request. For an outdated interior, it is possible to redesign and remodel thereby recreating old interiors to stylish and modern ones.
 

Let’s take a look at the materials that offer optimal functionality for elevator interiors.
 

  • Ceilings

Ceilings normally hold the lighting fixtures in elevators. Ceiling frame types are the best because they are light and are easy to add lighting features to. Aluminum frames are economical and easy to work with. One can add light diffusers to maximize lighting.
 

  • Wall panels

Since elevator users constantly contact elevator walls, it is best to use a metal or alloy that is durable, does not stain and gives elegant smooth finishes.
 

  • Mirrors

Mirrors are added to elevator walls to create an illusion of space and to reflect light. A mirror on one wall will do wonders in enhancing the interior look.
 

  • Handrails

These fixtures are probably the most used interior components. Therefore, when choosing the material to use, one must consider a metal or alloy that is not easily scratched such as satin stainless steel, mirror stainless steel, satin bronze, and mirror bronze.
 

  • Floors

Floors are prone to damage caused by impact. Therefore, the metallic surface used for the floor must not be easily damaged. It should also be non-porous for easy cleaning. Stainless steel and its alloys are a good choice.
