KAPOK 88 - the ‘go to’ people for padded protective drapes

23 May 2018

Increasing the life span of your elevator and maintaining customer experience.

Whether you manage a large complex, organize specialist relocations, co-ordinate daily bulky deliveries or are accountable for building services, protecting the image of your properties and its assets such as the elevators goes without saying because first impressions truly count.

An elevator which frankly lets the side down due to scratches, dents or broken mirrors is I imagine not an image you want to purvey to your customers; neither is being faced with a repair that can easily cost into the thousands.

With more than a billion elevator journeys being made over the world every day, transporting goods, people & furniture multiple times a day the chances of accidental damage dare I say is high and with technology developments in elevator interiors such user interfaces to inform, entertain and engage the riders attention the need to protect that investment becomes ever more.

KAPOK 88 - Padded protective drapes provide a quality solution with a quick turnaround. They offer extra protection to customer’s property and investment avoiding costly repairs and operational downtime.

“A family business, KAPOK 88 started serving the UK Elevator Industry with our padded protective drapes in the 80’s, which has developed and expanded to Europe and the Middle East in 2007.

Our product range has developed now to include a modular drape system as well as the tailor made solution. Also our customers can benefit from a greater choice of drape fixings, temporary floor protection, and e-li handrails all of which compliment and protect the elevator interior”. Richard B. Annable, Managing Director
