Abstract. The article presents our own research regarding reduction of the elevator cabin acoustic emission by the selection of an optimum method for the cabin construction stiffening. The elevator cabin structural panels with a width three times bigger than the standard one have been taken as a reference in the study. Numerical calculations have been performed. They constituted the basis for the methodology preparation as well as the method for the cabin panels stiffening. Measurements of the cabin panels acoustic emission as a result of determined impact have been used for optimization of the cabin construction increasing comfort while taking an elevator via the panels isolation with omega type stiffening elements.

Keywords: vibroisolations, sound measuring, elevator cabin, cabin panels, comfortable.
