elevators

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I'm doing preliminary design work on a 5-story structure.  It will have a
traction (cable) elevator, which hasn't been designed yet.

Does anyone have any rules-of-thumb for preliminary elevator loads so I can
get rough sizes?  Maybe something based on square feet of elevator floor and
total number of floors?
