When it comes to interior design, the elevator may be one of those spaces that may get overlooked. This doesn’t mean we should ignore this area! Apart from lobbies and hallways (which make up a visitor’s first impression) an elegant looking passenger elevator can help set everything else apart within a building – whether you’re an apartment complex owner or hotel manager, be it residential or commercial spaces; people rely on elevators.
If you’re looking for a way to make your space more inviting and stylish, consider installing attractive flooring in the elevator. Not only does it offer a pleasing atmosphere that will impress clients or visitors when they arrive.
Here are some options to consider for elevator flooring
Non-Slip Vinyl flooring for Elevators
Though most people spend only a little time in the elevator, due to the tight space and closed atmosphere, they’re left with lasting impressions from its overall hygiene and aesthetics. With vinyl flooring, it is easy to add contrast or colour pops that will add character into what would otherwise be seen as mundane daily travels between floors. Nowadays, more than ever before there is vinyl flooring available which not only provides durable comfort but also offers endless design possibilities through installation and available design options.
Reasons To Choose Vinyl Flooring For Elevators
1.Maintenance: Elevators are typically one of the dirtiest spaces in any building. People come with shoes or slippers that have been dirty for days on end and get into an elevator, which leads to a lot of dirt and germs. Vinyl floors are easy to be maintained with just water and mops or vacuuming them whenever it suits you most is also a good option. Vinyl floors won’t require any special care other than this simple maintenance routine that takes far less time and efforts than options like carpets.
2.Weight: The load capacity of an elevator is very important, so it is important to consider installing light weight flooring in elevators.
3.Durability: The durability of vinyl floorings makes them an excellent choice to be the perfect solution for heavy traffic areas, like elevators.
4.Anti-slip Vinyl: The anti-slip vinyl planks and strips come with the feature of not being slippery. This helps people hold onto their grounds in an elevator while it moves, which keeps them balanced during those transitions between floors
5.Sound Absorbent: Some people tend to talk loudly in an elevator, which can be very irritating to others. The sound of their conversations is often bouncing across the entire elevator room. Since most vinyl floors absorb sounds rather than letting them echo off its surface (like marble or ceramic tile), it is an ideal choice for elevators.
Epoxy Flooring for Elevators
Epoxy flooring is just as tough and long-lasting, with added benefits. Not only does it resist slippage due to wetness or temperature change – but it also dulls rapidly in low light conditions . You can enjoy its beauty without worrying about it fading over time, making it a good choice for elevator flooring.
We offer a wide variety of elevator epoxy coatings to suit your needs. Our standard and self-levelling options allow you the freedom to choose from a variety in colour choices with quartz aggregate or resin chips added for anti-slipping capabilities!
