Do you really understand the meaning of the elevator floor buttons?
The rise of high-rise buildings, ubiquitous elevators, has become an important symbol of the city. I don't know if you are overwhelmed by the letter instructions on floors P, LG and M when you take the elevator. So what floor are these letters on?
Let's take an inventory today.
In fact, it starts with the explanation of English words.
Elevators represent different words in British English and American English. Elevator is more common in the United States than Lift in the British.
The application of elevator abbreviation in China is generally as follows.
Basement first floor（B1）
Basement second floor（B2）
But the number of the floors is not all the same in the world.
Basement first floor
The word B in B1 stands for basement/ˈbeɪsmənt/
b1:basement first floor
b2:basement second floor
b3:basement third floor
Similar buttons that begin with P represent several floors of the ground.
P stands for parking, which is often used in hotels or hotels.
For example: Park first floor（P1）
Park second floor（P2）
Note that the separate unnumbered P, Penthouse, may be the so-called "top floor" (attic). In foreign countries, RF (Roof floor) is also used to represent the top level.
floor G and L
First floor、 lobby.
In the United States, the first floor is often represented by G or L.
That is, G (Ground) or L (Lobby) represent the location of the lobby.
That is, the first floor or the first floor of the ground.
In China, some buildings also use G to represent the hall.
In foreign countries, LL (Level lobby), that is, the bottom floor, the ground floor, will also be used to represent the first floor.
the first underground floor
Is the lower floor of the ground, which can be understood as the first floor of the ground or the first floor of the basement.
Then LG2 is the second underground floor.

Many places where 13 are used are replaced by M(M is the thirteenth in the alphabet).
There are no 13 floors in many building elevators in China, only M-level
In China, many people avoid 4, 13, 14, 18 floors, facing these "unlucky" Numbers, now many developers use "transfer" method, with D, E, F and other letters to replace, or directly over the two Numbers, 3 floors above is 5 floors, 12 floors above is 15 floors.
