Laminates are tried-and-true utilitarian surfaces that come in almost every color imaginable - including simulated woods. If budget is your primary concern, a standard laminate will outlast carpet or cloth wall treatments, which are more vulnerable to gouging, tearing, and nefarious odor retention. You can choose from hundreds of patterns and colors from several different laminate manufacturers such as FORMICA Brand and WILSONART
Wood veneers are not all created equal. The most resilient product is resin-hardened wood. Manufactured with natural wood veneers that are infused - not simply coated - with a protective melamine resin, resin-hardened wood provides superior scratch and abrasion resistance. If design consistency mandates the use of wood in a high-traffic vehicle, consider a pre-engineered system that allows you to specify wood for the upper panels only. Stainless steel panels are a better choice for the "impact zones" (handrail panels, lower panels, and kick plates). This robust configuration is abuse resistant, and if wood damage occurs, it will be more economical to replace smaller panels.
Stainless steel has universal appeal; it's durable, affordable, and needs little maintenance. While commodity stainless steel panels have long been an option for standard cabs, pre-engineered systems can incorporate textured or patterned stainless steel panels in various configurations - improving the visual impact without dramatically increasing the price. Although traditional satin and polished finishes may be retouched in the field, textures and patterns can effectively conceal fingerprinting, minor scratches, and other signs of use; and mechanically applied finishes actually strengthen the surface of the steel. Stainless steel is the preferred material for elevators that service cafeterias, healthcare providers, laboratories, or other venues with stringent hygiene standards. It's also sustainable - the high recycled content and long life-cycle of stainless steel make it an excellent choice for green buildings.
Brass is very
similar to Stainless steel but it requires more maintenance. Brass is a
great way to add class to an elevator interior quickly and at a moderate
