Issues with Elevator Remodeling

Your tenants WILL be inconvenienced. There are few things that are more inconvenient for tenants in your commercial building or apartment complex, or for your condo association members than remodeling an elevator.

For your tenants, it will mean WEEKS of inconvenience, including:

And all that usually happens in your most used areas!

Of course, each of those items contributes to dissatisfaction, poor customer experience, and MONEY just flowing out the door every day.

PLUS you have to wait to have an inspection completed before you can open the elevator again in many cases.

What is Rapid Resurfacing for Elevators (using 3M DiNoc)

Also called Rapid Remodeling, this is the practice of using Dinoc 3M film to RESURFACE an area instead of tearing it out and replacing it.

It’s a popular option in Europe and starting to take off here in the United States as an alternative to traditional remodeling because of all the advantages it offers.

In the case of using dinoc film for an elevator remodeling project you would resurface the interior panels with your choice of a hi-tech vinyl film instead of ripping it out and replacing.

And the results are amazing! Just review the images below for stunning examples:

How long does it take to remodel an elevator car?

A traditional elevator remodel can take 4-8 WEEKS or more depending on the size and scope of the project.

In comparison, a Dinoc vinyl film installation can be completed in as little as ONE DAY! In fact, one recent elevator project in Tampa was completed in just about 4 hours

That’s right, you can have your elevator back up and running in 4- 48 hours with no major construction, no debris, and no downtime!

Why is 3M DiNoc called a GREEN remodeling solution?

In addition to being fast, Dinoc 3M film is also a very GREEN solution. Dinoc contains NO volatile organic compounds (VOCs) making it completely safe for indoor air quality.

And because Dinoc can be applied directly over the existing surfaces there is no waste generated from this type of elevator “remodel”.

Construction and demolition waste is one of the largest sources of waste in the world. In the United States alone, construction and demolition activities generate approximately 500 million tons of waste each year.

And that’s not even counting the additional 200 million tons of waste generated by renovation projects!

All that construction and demolition waste has a major impact on the environment. When it’s landfilled, it takes up valuable space that could be used for other purposes. And when it’s incinerated, it releases harmful emissions into the air.

In addition, Dinoc is fire retardant and meets all the safety standards for elevator interiors set by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME).

How much does it cost to remodel an elevator with 3M dinoc?

The cost to remodel an elevator with Dinoc 3M film will vary depending on the size and scope of the project. But normally you’ll spend between $4,000 and $8,000 per elevator car.

You can save up to 60% on the cost of traditional remodeling.

In addition, because Dinoc can be applied directly over the existing surfaces, there is no need to remove and dispose of the old materials. That means no “dump fees”

This can save you even more money on your Dinoc elevator remodeling project!

What designs do I have to choose from?

The Dinoc 3M catalog contains over 500 different colors and textures. You can choose from a variety of wood grains, metals, stones, and even leather!
