Ausbilden des Hebebodens als Druckboden

load-bearing floor
Explanation:
I may be way off the mark here, but the Hebebodens I am familiar with are what I might call a trap door. They are not usually designed to support any real loads. If this is your case, you may consider this term.

Even if it is some sort of elevator apparatus, this term may apply.
