RE: Elevator load factor.

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
IBC 2006 section 1607.8.1 tells you to increase the loads by 100%. This
would give you a 3.2 load factor.

Subject: Elevator load factor.

I'm looking for the loading factor (LRFD) for elevator sheave beams. I
seem to recall a specific factor higher than 1.6, but can't remember
where I've read it. Does anyone have a load factor or a reference?
Thanks.
