Cab Interiors

Unfinished Cab Interiors
Would you prefer to have your carpenter finish your elevator interior on site? No problem, many of customers wish to have their elevator cab panels match their library walls or the kitchen cabinetry. In these situations, Access offers you a “blank slate” solution that will allow you customize your cab’s interiors as you see fit. We will provide you with unfinished paint-grade birch plywood and the rest is up to your and your carpenter’s imagination.

Estate Cab Interiors
The Estate series offers you an extremely popular recessed four-panel system that is available in a full range of wood finishes, feels customized and yet is much more affordable than similar competitors upgraded cabs. The quality wood backing is a rigid ½” thick, in contrast to other cabs that use ¼” panel that has a noticeable “flex” to it. Choose one of our quality factory-finishes and we will finish and lacquer the cab for you at no additional cost. You can also choose any Minwax finish and we can apply that for you as well.
Estate Limited Cab Interiors
Upgrade your cab a bit further with this “perfect” classic. A full paneled ceiling in the same wood selection is added to the classic four-panel cab design. Thicker molding is applied to the cab with a kick plate opposite the opening. An arched piece invites you into your elevator. Choose from a full range of wood selections and finishes.
Custom Paneling
On a day-in and day-out basis, your cab’s interior will define your elevator experience. Access offers you a wide range of custom panel designs, veneers and finishes that will personalize your cab and make it a seamless extension to the interior design of your home.

The luxurious old world scissor gate with its vintage Manhattan feel and/or European appeal add a special touch to your elevator and bring the personality and design of a bygone era into your home. These gates are available in black iron, brass and stainless steel, and come brushed, polished, oil rubbed or in any other finish a metal shop can do or that you can think of.

Configuration Drawings

Frequently the size and dimension of your car is determines by the space into which it will be built. There is no such thing as a “custom” car size — in every case, we will size and fit the largest possible cab into the desired space as possible, at no additional cost to you. While we have to adhere to National Code, which restricts private residence elevator cabs to a maximum of 15 square feet, there is frequently more than one way to achieve this size.
