Traction Elevators

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
On a recent 8 story project, I was surprised to find out that Otis is eliminating machine beams and requiring us to provide a 10, 12 or 14" slab (based upon the elevator capacity) designed to sustain their concentrated loads. Is this the latest trend...eliminating machine beams?
