Cabin floor

The elevator cabin floor is one of the most fundamental components of an elevator, which plays a crucial role not only in aesthetic appeal but also in safety and structural integrity. The cabin floor must be designed and built to withstand the weight of passengers and loads, remaining strong and resilient under heavy burdens.

The materials used in constructing the floor typically include metal, usually aluminum or steel, which may be covered with other materials such as tile, carpet, or plastic to provide additional beauty and sound insulation. Foam insulators on the cabin floor are used to prevent noise pollution from transmitting to other areas and also to increase passenger comfort.

The presence of reinforcements, like steel profiles with an omega-shaped cross-section or brackets that are welded to the floor sheet, is essential to enhance the floor’s resistance and strength against forces and impacts.

Furthermore, the cabin floor must be designed to be resistant to environmental factors such as humidity and temperature changes. In some cases, floors are designed to be foldable or removable to provide access to the underlying parts of the cabin for maintenance and repairs.

Overall, the elevator cabin floor should offer a combination of safety features, functionality, and aesthetic quality, and its durability and reliability should impact the overall quality of the elevator.

Features of General cabin products: cabin floor

The floor sheet of the elevator cabin plays a critical role in the quality of movement and safety during a fall. These sheets are produced in General cabins according to capacity, with thicknesses of 2 and 3 millimeters, using ST-12 sheet metal.

One of the advantages of the General cabin is the presence of two bends on the side of the sheet, which increases the sheet’s strength. To enhance resistance against deformation due to the applied weight, several reinforcements with an omega-shaped cross-section are always welded to the floor sheet. We use two bent sheets shaped like channels on both sides of the floor sheet for extra reinforcement.

Ultimately, as a firm and cohesive structure is produced, it provides adequate resistance for this cabin assembly against impacts and collisions resulting from falls.

When the depth of the cabin is significant, the floor assembly is divided into two parts, which are connected with screws and bolts.

In areas where load cells (shock absorbers) are installed, two brackets are always welded to increase the strength of the welding, which prevents the floor sheet from buckling.

Lastly, it’s interesting to know that we use insulated foam to prevent the breakage of stones and the transmission of sound.
