Site Prep: Elevator Door Penetrations

Door openings can go just around the elevator door trim or much wider.  Find out the plan for your elevator and cut penetrations accordingly.

There are a variety of ways to make door penetrations, providing benefit to the architect, interior designer, building owner and general contractor. This also gives tremendous flexibility for retrofit or new construction projects.  The elevator can be placed in a variety of locations due to this flexibility.

In addition, hall calls do not have to be placed on the modular unit itself; they can be on the building walls as well. Please see the pictures above for examples.
