Elevator | Lift Bank Layouts

Elevators, or lifts, should be specified and arranged around a series of design factors that include: occupancy type, speed and quantity of traffic, total vertical distance to be traveled, and the desired time and speed of travel. When deciding on an appropriate layout and location for your elevator banks, it is advised to locate lifts near the building’s primary entrance in relation to the main path of circulation, and to also remain easily accessed by every floor. Groups of elevators, or banks, are typically controlled by a single call button and operating system, but individual elevators may be designed to operate independently of the group in special circumstances.

When specifying an elevator system, consult the lift manufacturer for detailed recommendations for sizes, controls, layouts, and installation requirements. Likewise, consult appropriate building codes for structural and mechanical requirements for the elevator shafts, fire separations, ventilation, and soundproofing.

Single car elevators are common lifts used in small to medium sized commercial applications. Best used for smaller structures, a single car elevator system can come in a variety of car sizes to meet desired human, furniture, and equipment loads. Single car elevator banks are generally used in buildings without high peak daily traffic or volume demands.

The dimensions and sizes listed here are for preliminary design layout planning only. For detailed sizing, capacities, and support requirements, consult directly with the manufacturer.
