How to Pick an Elevator Cab for Your Needs

It can be tough deciding which type of elevator cab you need for your business. There are several considerations that come into play. You need help sifting through all the information, so you don’t get overwhelmed. When trying to pick an elevator cab, whether for your small doctor’s office, apartment building or high rise, you must thoroughly consider all the options you have before making a decision.

Elevator Cab Options

Consider this: our Mowrey ME 200 and ME 225 cabs are made with durable materials and put together by highly trained, experienced technicians. We give you options, giving you access to a variety of heights, flooring options, ceiling styles, and wall-surface materials. On top of basic cab construction, you can select from upgrade options that put control and convenience in your hands.

Some upgrades for elevator cabs include:

  • Customized wall panels
  • Steel construction featuring enamel finish
  • Glass backs
  • Stainless steel doors
  • Nickel silver sills

Budget and Goals

Choosing the right elevator cab option is not something to be taken lightly. You have to do your homework first, determining what your budget is, what your goals are and what the intended usage is. You can select which materials and accents you want for each component of the cab, such as:

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

Going the Extra Mile

When it comes to interior features, you can boost the functionality and appearance of your cab with items like:

  • Stainless steel trim
  • Mirrors
  • Edging
  • Gorgeous finishes
  • Wood paneling
  • Hands-free phones
  • Hall lanterns
  • Customized fixture buttons
  • Metal, textured entry way walls
  • Stainless steel pot-lights

If you have a limited budget, though, that’s OK. You will function just as well with standard cab options if you own a small apartment building or residential home. You may want all the bells and whistles if you are a property manager of a luxury building, such as a high-end hotel. In this case, why not add some tile and natural stone for a classier look?

The end goal is to have a comfortable, safe interior where your employees, guests and tenants can have the most positive experience possible while on your property.

Ultimately, the model you go with will vary on the size and load capacity of your elevator.  You’ll also want to consider intended usage, potential safety risks, desired drive system, and your budget.
