If you need to use your elevator for part time service and fulltime passenger duties, a convertible ceiling is the answer for you. When used for passengers, a convertible ceiling looks like a conventional ceiling. When the elevator is needed for service, the rear half of the ceiling can be slid up and above the front half to reveal a top hat. All this can be done in seconds by one person without tools. It can then be returned to passenger use just as easily.
Many of ECR’s ceiling models are available in convertible configurations. Some examples are provided here. (Some limitations may apply)
