The Key Parts of Elevator Interiors

April 15, 2020

Whether you are planning to update your existing elevators or build new ones, there are many things you need to consider. Fortunately, elevator providers can help you with any problems when it comes to the mechanical and structural aspects of your project. If you have a specific style or design for your elevator interiors, or you have no idea what you want, they can help with that too. Let's help you get started by identifying the major parts of an elevator.




Probably the most important factor when you are updating your elevator interiors, is the panel system. When deciding on which specific system to choose, you should opt for one that has well-protected panels to prevent them from getting damaged. Materials often used are steel and glass.


Ceiling and lighting


While there are plenty of configurations and designs for the ceiling, its primary function is to provide enough lighting for the entire elevator. A sufficiently lit elevator will make your passengers feel safer, while poor lighting can cause trip hazards. So it's important to make sure you have an interior cab that is clean and safe with good lighting. LED lights would be a great option.

This part of the elevator interiors is usually in the form of stainless steel that offers good ventilation by allowing air to come out in the vents and into the cab. It is also designed to prevent damage near the floor due to the constant traffic of passengers.




A handrail is perhaps the simplest part of your cab. However, it has many significant functions to serve, the main one being support for passengers. It also prevents damage to walls when large items are being transported. In essence, it is more than just a bar that is found in most elevators, it is an essential addition to make your elevator accessible and safer for all its passengers.
