RE: Hydraulic Elevator Pit Design

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

All the hydraulic elevators that I have designed are supported on the pit
slab.  There is generally a steel transfer beam at the top of the cylinder
that transfers the load to the concrete slab.

Harold Sprague
