Small car space


Folding lift door SLYCMA PLYCAB for modernisation of old lift door or creation of lift in old building.


When you have to create or modernise a lift in an existing building, the dimensional limit is often the first one you face.

The PLYCAB door makes it possible to make the most of the frequently reduced car space..

Choose the glass version to create an illusion of spaciousness and reduce the feeling of being confined.


Replace your old lift doors with the PLYCAB operator upside down


This is a little-known but very practical feature in certain configurations. Our PLYCAB door can be installed upside down. Why ?

  • The upper storage space is too small
  • There is no space on the cab roof
  • The car is decorated with nice mouldings that you or the architect want to keep.
