interior is custom designed to fit the elevator it is being
installed in, based on the provided survey. The
complete interior can be installed by two qualified elevator
personnel in one day. Below is a specification on each component
of the interior. All finished materials supplied in these packages
have been designed to meet the ASME A17.1 Safety Code for Elevators
and Escalators code requirement for flame spread & smoke
All panels utilize z-clips to fasten to cab shell walls. These
clips allow for each panel to be removed at later time if
damaged or new panel is desired. Included in package is a
template story-pole for placement of mating z-clips on cab
All plastic laminate is Wilsonart® brand standard grade
matte finish plastic laminate. Panels consists of a particleboard
core faced with desired laminate selection, balanced with a
0.20 mil brown backer and edge-banded with black PVC edge banding.
Overall panel thickness is ¾”.
textured stainless steel is Rigidized® brand and
is formed from 18 gauge satin finish stainless
steel. Each panel consists of a particleboard core faced
with desired textured
stainless, and balanced with a 0.20 mil brown backer.
Textured metal is formed in a pan shape to wrap all edges
of the panel.
Overall panel thickness is ¾”.
wood veneer is A-Grade Plain Sliced veneer book matched and
balanced. Grain between panels
will be similar
and sequenced as close as possible. Panels utilize
fire-rated particleboard core. Panel edges will
contain a molding matching the panel face on
(7) & Fourteen (14)
series panels. Molding will wrap the edge of the panel and
overlap onto the face. Nine (9) series panels are edge-banded
with matching veneer edge banding. All molding & veneer
will be finished with high performance spray & wipe stain
in the selected color and two coats of clear pre-catalyzed
dull lacquer. Overall panel thickness is ¾”.
Reveals and Frieze
are the area between each panel and in the corners of the
elevator, and the frieze is the area between the top
of the panel and the canopy. Standard reveals and frieze
consist of matte black plastic laminate affixed to 1/8” luan
build up. This build-up creates a space behind panel to
house the z-clip and allow the back of the panel to sit
the reveal face. Reveals and frieze are installed directly
on cab shell surface by means of 3M™ VHB™ two-sided
tape. Optional upgrades of satin (#4) or mirrored (#8)
finish stainless steel, satin finish muntz, or contrasting
laminate are available.
(7) & Fourteen
(14) Series Reveals:
Reveal width between panels is set at 1¼”, and
corner reveals are ± 2”. The reveal between the
top of the panel and the face of the ceiling is also 1¼”.
(9) Series Reveals:
Reveal width between panels is set at ¾”, and
corner reveals are set at 5”. The reveal between the
top of the panel and the face of the ceiling is also ¾”.
Base (Toe kick)
or toe kick is the wall finish located below
panel. Standard height is 6” and is made of 18
gauge satin (#4) stainless steel affixed to 1/8” luan
build up. This build-up keeps the base flush with adjacent
reveals. Sidewall base will have ¼” x 3” vertical
slots punched into the face to allow for code compliant
ventilation. These slots will be centered in the sidewall
in the base height, unless otherwise indicated on the survey
form. The base is installed directly on cab shell surface
by means of 3M™ VHB™ two-sided tape. Optional
upgrades of mirrored (#8) finish stainless steel, satin
finish muntz or contrasting plastic laminate are available.
two styles of handrails available, a 1½” diameter
tubular or ¼” x 2” flat bar. The end of
the rail can be either returned back towards the cab shell
wall or be capped & polished. Handrail stand-offs are
mounted directly through the cab shell wall using cap toggles
contains a set screw on the bottom to allow for the rail
to be installed and removed from inside the elevator in the
of damage or refinishing.
ceiling frame is constructed from 1” x 1” x
1/8” and the intermediate supports are 1” x 1” x
1/8” aluminum tee, all the corners & intermediate
supports are welded and polished to conceal the seams. The
entire frame is lacquered to resist fingerprints and provide
a durable finish. The lay-in panels are Lexan™ Thermoclear
polycarbonate fluted lenses. Each lense is removable to allow
for access to escape hatch and light bulb replacement. The
ceiling includes two (2) 48” side mount standard fluorescent
fixtures and bulbs. The standard distance from the canopy
to the face of the ceiling is 6”. Ceiling will have
a minimum of six welded hangers for means of attaching
frame to canopy.
Halogen Downlight Ceiling
The face of the suspended ceiling will be divided into
six individual panels made from 18 gauge satin (#4) finish
steel separated by ¼” black painted reveals.
Alternative materials such as mirrored stainless steel, muntz,
plastic laminate, and wood veneer are available. The ceiling
edge is painted black. The ceiling core is ¾” Ultra-lite
MDF, balanced with a 0.20 mil brown backer. Attached to the
back of the ceiling is unistrut to provide hanger supports
for suspending ceiling from canopy.
The escape hatch will be incorporated into the ceiling face
as best as possible to conceal any seam lines. In the event
that the lines cannot be concealed, hairline seams will be
The lights are low voltage halogen downlights. Each fixture
contains a 20W safety coated bulb as required by code. Also
included is a car top mounted dimmer control box to allow for
adjustment of the lighting level.
The standard number of fixtures is six (6) and this is based
on a 2000 to 3000 LB capacity elevator. Depending upon the
elevator size and ceiling height, the actual number of fixtures
may need to be increased. If this should occur, you will be
notified upon placement of the order.
