Elevator Components

Creating elevator components has been a part of our repertoire since our beginning. Our founder, Charles P. Dahlstrom, introduced the world’s first fireproof door in 1904 and began making them for elevator entrances. He then created a series of decorative metal mouldings to complement these elegant doors. 

Our metal moudlings catalog spans our history and includes more than 1,400 designs. 

Roll Forming For Elevator Components

Dahlstrom does much more than elevator entrances. Roll forming is used for a variety of elevator components, including:

  • Decking
  • Elevator track
  • Chain Guides
  • Roller Guides
  • U-Channels
  • Stiffener
  • Wire raceways

Inside the elevator cab, roll forming is used to create:

  • Decorative mouldings
  • Railings
  • Vertical or horizontal components for elevator wall panels



Dahlstrom Roll Form has created superior custom roll formed products since 1904.

Roll Forming Advantages

Elevator systems need a high volume of long, slender parts, which is roll forming’s specialty. Roll forming is a highly repeatable process. Once the tooling is in place, roll forming produces components more consistently than other metal shaping processes, even over long runs. 

Why should you consider roll forming for power distribution components?  Roll forming can fabricate parts with:

  • Huge volumes 
  • Tolerance control 
  • Complex profiles
  • Inline punching for accepting mating parts
  • Tricky hole patterns
  • Pristine finishes

Hole punching, bending, and cutting to length can easily fit into one continuous process rather than separate steps. Roll forming is a more cost-effective and productive method in all these cases.
