RE: elevator hoist beam

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
You should get the cut sheet from the contractor supplying the elevator, or
at least ask the architect to provide you with a similar cut sheet of an
elevator on a similar project.

You need to design the support system for Elevator Machine Room Floors and
hoist supports for Static and Dynamic Loads. Also, the deflection criteria
is L/1666 which can govern. Try Otis Elevator/United Technologies or another
large elevator Contractor.

Subject: elevator hoist beam

does anyone know of a good design reference for elevator hoist beams?

my superior told me to load a simple span beam with a 5 kip point load
applied at the middle.  is that about it or is there more involved?
