Custom Elevator Doors
Adding an elevator to your home or commercial building is a big decision, and if you’re installing it in an existing structure, your new mobility system should complement its surroundings. When you create a custom elevator, you’ll be able to plan out the motif and details that best suit your space, from choosing the materials used to designing custom elevator doors. At Artisan Elevators, we’ll guide you through the process of selecting the ideal doors that will make your elevator blend in perfectly or make a statement, depending on your preference.
When you buy a home or commercial elevator, you not only want to purchase the right type to accommodate your needs, but you also want the right style to complement your decor. This is important whether you’re looking for a luxury home elevator or an attractive elevator for a business. While it’s natural to put a lot of thought into the interior of the elevator, it’s important not to skimp on the details when it comes to creating a distinctive look for the exterior.
When designing a custom elevator, doors may not be the primary focus, but they’re the component lift users will see first, so it’s important that they make a good first impression. Depending on the type of elevator that you choose, you’ll have the option of wood, glass, or metal doors. While wood and metal afford you and your passengers privacy as they travel to other floors, glass allows for an uninterrupted view and is a good choice for home elevators. When making your door choices, keep in mind that they must fit not only the look of the room but the design and location of the elevator shaft as well. You can also choose how you want the door or doors to open: We offer our consumers single, opposite, or adjacent opening doors that either slide or fold open. With single doors, you have the option of single slide right-hand doors or single slide left-hand.
Of course, before you consider details such as the design of your elevator’s doors and the aesthetic touches that will make it unique, you’ll need to decide on the basics, like which type of operating mechanism would be best for your elevator and the space it will occupy. It’s important to consider these factors together, as certain types of elevators will need additional space for a machine room, while others, such as vacuum elevators, do not. Whichever elevator type you choose, it must meet local building codes for the size of your home or building. Before customizing your doors, you’ll also need to determine the style and shape of elevator that will look best in your home. Elevators are available in rounded or angular shapes (such as square or rectangular), and we can create a bespoke elevator in just about any shape you can imagine.
When you’re ready to create your ideal elevator, our designers will be there to help you every step of the way, from deciding on a shape and style to customizing the doors, control panel, and trim. Whether you prefer a sleek, modern design or a vintage-style lift with ornate metalwork and leather trim, we can make your vision a reality.
