Elevator Cab OptionsFor instance, our Mowrey ME 200 and ME 225 cabs are manufactured with durable materials and fabricated by highly trained technicians within a 350,000-square-foot manufacturing facility. You can choose from a variety of heights, ceiling styles, flooring options and wall-surface materials. In addition to basic cab construction, we offer upgrade options that put even more control and convenience at your fingertips.

Some of those upgrade options include customized wall panels, steel construction with enamel finish, glass backs, stainless steel doors, nickel silver sills, and customized flooring.

When considering which elevator cab options are best for your needs, you must first outline what your purpose is, what your goals are and what your budget is. In general, you can choose which materials and accents you want for every component of the cab, such as:

  • Ceilings
  • Fixtures
  • Handrails
  • Glass observation panels
  • Mirrors
  • Doors
  • Call send features
  • Remote diagnostics
  • Frames
  • Front return
  • Sills
  • Flooring
  • Top
  • Walls

Interior features may bump up the functionality and appearance of your cab thanks to things like stainless steel trim, mirrors, edging, elaborate finishes, wood paneling, hands-free telephone, hall lanterns, custom fixture buttons, textured metal entrance walls, stainless steel pot lights and more.

Limited budgets can do just fine with standard cab options, such as small apartment buildings and residential homes, whereas property managers of luxury buildings can afford to add on those extra special touches that enhance the functionality and appearance of the elevator cab experience. For example, high-end hotels can benefit from the addition of tile and natural stone to lend a classy, elegant look to the cab.

Just keep in mind that a comfortable, safe interior allows your employees, guests and tenants to have a positive experience while visiting you or working in your building. Safety and functionality are number one concerns, although custom colors and accents that complement your existing d├ęcor are also pluses.

The model you choose will depend on the elevator’s size and load capacity, intended usage, potential safety risks, drive system, and your budget.
