  • 10. GeneralAn elevator system with its hoistway, machine room, and waiting lobbies is a major element ina building and requires special design consideration. Preengineered or custom-made elevatorsystems can be constructed to meet virtually all vertical transportation needs for passenger,freight, or service.In all cases, design of an elevator system must be carefully considered throughout all stagesof the building design process. During initial stages, the elevator handling capacity and qualityof service desired determines the size, speed, number, type, and location of elevatorsystems. Proper selection depends on type of tenancy, number of occupants, and the buildingdesign (number of floors, floor heights, building circulation, etc.). Elevator Arrangementlocates the elevator within the building plan to provide efficient and accessible service. Eachelevator system, once selected, requires Operational Spaces, hoistway pit and machineroom, and Passenger Spaces, lobby, and elevator car.Proper planning and contact with representatives of the elevator industry and local codeofficials are essential to each of these design areas.The two most common systems, the Hydraulic Elevator and the Electric Elevator, are shownin the drawings "Hydraulic Elevator" and "Electric Elevator." The systems are distinguishedmainly by their hoisting mechanisms.The Hydraulic Elevator uses an oil hydraulic driving machine to raise and lower the elevatorcar and its load. A hydraulic pump unit is one in which the energy is applied by means of aliquid under pressure in a cylinder equipped with a plunger or piston. The car is supported atthe pit floor (hoistway base). Lower speeds and the piston length restrict the use of thissystem to approximately 55 ft. It generally requires the least initial installation expense, butmore power is used during operation because of the greater loads imposed on the drivingmachine.An Electric Elevator is a power elevator where the energy is applied by means of an electricdriving machine. In the electric driving machine the energy is applied by an electric motor. Itincludes the motor, brake, and the driving sheave or drum together with its connectinggearing, if any. Medium to high speeds and virtually limitless rise allow this elevator to servehigh-rise, medium-rise, and low-rise buildings.
  • 11. Machine Room (Electric Elevators)Normally located directly over the top of the hoistway — it could also be below at side or rear— the machine room is designed to contain elevator hoisting machine and electronic controlequipment. Adequate ventilation, soundproofing, and structural support for the elevator mustbe considered. Requires self-closing, self-locking access door. Local codes may require thatno other electrical or mechanical equipment, not associated with the elevator, be installed inthe machine room.Elevator CarGuided by vertical guide rails on each side of the car, the elevator car conveys passenger orfreight between floors. It consists of a car constructed within a supporting platform and frame.Design of the car focuses on the finished ceiling, walls, floor, and doors with lighting,ventilation, and elevator signal equipment.The car and frame of a hydraulic elevator system are supported by a piston or cylinder.The car and frame of an electric elevator system are supported by the hoist machine. Theelevator and its counterweight are connected via steel ropes.HoistwayThe hoistway is a vertical shaft for the travel of one or more elevators. It includes the pit andterminates at the underside of the overhang machinery space floor for electric elevators, or atthe underside of the roof over the hoistway of a hydraulic elevator. Access to the elevator carand hoistway is normally through hoistway doors located at each floor serviced by theelevator system. Hoistway design is determined by the characteristics of the elevator systemselected and by requirements of the applicable code for fire separation, ventilation,soundproofing, or nonstructural elements.LobbyElevator waiting areas are designed to allow free circulation of passengers, rapid access toelevator cars, and clear visibility of elevator signals. All elevator lobbies must be enclosedwith the exception of the designated main building entry level.AccessibilityPassenger elevators on accessible routes should comply with requirements of ANSI 117.1and ADAAG.Machine Room (Hydraulic Elevator)Normally located near the base of the hoistway, the machine room contains hydraulic pumpunit and electronic controls. Provisions of adequate ventilation and soundproofing must beconsidered. Requires self-closing, self-locking access door. Local codes may require that noother electrical or mechanical equipment, not associated with the elevator, be installed in themachine room.
  • 12. Residential ElevatorsTypical car sizes, A x B: 36 in. x 36 in., 42 in. x 42 in., 36 in. x 48 in.12 sq ft platform maximum size allowed by National Elevator Code for residential elevators,ANSI A17.1. This platform size does not meet the National Handicapped Access Code, ANSIA117.1, for use by an unassisted wheelchair-bound person.Load capacity of drum-type machine is 450 lb. Speed is 30 ft per minute.Load capacity of traction machine is 700 lb. Speed is 36 ft per minute.Elevators operate on 220/230 volt, single phase power supply. A disconnect switch must beprovided within sight of the machine. A 110V, single phase power supply is required forlighting of machine area of hoistway.Enclosures are recommended for all hoistways. Fire rating of hoistway enclosure and accessdoors must be consistent with the fire rating of the building construction. See local codes.Notes1. Dimensions may vary among manufacturers and according to the system selected.Elevators carrying greater loads or operating at higher speeds require more clearanceoverhead and in pit areas.2. Elevator cars may have higher interior clearance if desired, which increases overheadclearance required in the hoistway.3. Guide rails usually are provided by the manufacturer in 5 ft sections. Some manufacturerssupply rails that can span from floor structure to floor structure. If the existing structurecannot support the guide rails, manufacturers can provide a self-supporting tower thattransmits the load to its base. Increased horizontal clearance in the hoistway is required.If a third guide rail is required, it is supplied in 3 ft 4 in. sections.4. Dimensions given are appropriate for most applications. For exact dimensions required inspecific circumstances, consult manufacturers.5. Elevator cars can be provided with openings on two sides; guide rails must be locatedaccordingly. Consult manufacturers.DumbwaitersTypical car sizes, A x B: 24 in. x 24 in., 30 in. x 30 in., 36 in. x 36 in., 30 in. x 48 in. Smallersizes available.9 sq ft platform maximum size allowed by National Elevator Code for dumbwaiters, ANSIA17.1.48 in. high car is maximum allowed by National Elevator Code for dumbwaiters, ANSI A17.1.Load capacity for drum-type machines is 500 lb. Speed is 50 ft per minute.Drum-type machines are not recommended for installations with total travel of more than 36ft–40 ft. Maximum total travel 50 ft.Load capacity of traction machines is 500 lb. Speeds to 500 ft per minute are available.Dumbwaiters require 3 phase electrical power. For exact voltage consult manufacturer.

The entire doormay slide up and down; however, required clearances will vary. Swing hoistway doorsalso are available. Consult manufacturers.
  • 14. Elevator Selection—HospitalThe accompanying diagram illustrates elevator selection parameters in the context of ahospital layout. Actual calculations relating these parameters are complex. Consultation withan elevator industry representative or consulting elevator engineer is recommended.1. BUILDING HEIGHT: Floor-to-floor height and number of floors.2. BUILDING POPULATION: Total number of building occupants and expected visitors andtheir expected distribution throughout the building.3. BUILDING USE ANALYSIS: Location of offices, patients rooms, service areas, andancillary spaces conducive to mass assembly. Primary public circulation areas andprimary staff circulation areas should be identified.4. WAITING AREA: Peak loading and waiting time are two important concepts in providingthe quality of elevator service expected by hospital visitors and staff. Different standardsare applied according to building use. Consult an elevator engineer.5. LOCATION OF MAJOR ENTRANCES6. ELEVATOR SYSTEMS: A large selection of elevator capacities, speed, controls, andtype are available. In this case, passenger and service elevators are shown. An elevatorwith a front and rear entrance serves as a passenger elevator during peak visiting hours.The wide variety of elevator alternatives should be discussed with an elevator engineer toselect the system most suitable for each individual situation.SERVICE REQUIREMENTS: Elevators must have sufficient capacity and speed to meetbuilding service requirements. In this case, the elevator must accommodate a 24 x 76 in.ambulance type stretcher with attendants. Check local requirements.For patient service in hospitals, to accommodate beds with their attachments, use 5000 lbelevators; platforms 6 ft wide x 9 ft 6 in. deep, doors at least 4 ft wide (4 ft 6 in. width ispreferred).CODE AND REGULATIONS: Recommendations and code restrictions regarding accessibility,fire safety, elevator controls, and so on, may affect elevator selection. Consult with anelevator industry representative or consulting elevator engineer. As a minimum, comply withthe ANSI A17.1 for Elevators, Dumbwaiters, Escalators and Moving Walks.NOTE: Elevators should not be considered as emergency exits.Elevator Systems In Buildings Other ThanPrivate HomesSelection of elevator systems increases in complexity with the size and complexity of theproject. Even though the vertical transportation needs of low-rise residential and commercialprojects may be simply met, all the parameters listed below should be considered andanalyzed with a consulting elevator engineer to ensure proper selection.Building PopulationThe elevator selection process must begin with a thorough analysis of how people will occupythe building.1. TOTAL POPULATION AND DENSITY: The total number of occupants and visitors andtheir distribution by floors within a building.
  • 15. 2. PEAK LOADING: Periods when elevators carry the highest traffic loads. For example,peak loading in office buildings coincides with rush hours and/or lunch periods, whilepeak loading in hospitals may occur during visiting hours.3. WAITING TIME: The length of time a passenger is expected to wait for the next elevatorto arrive. These demands vary according to building use and building occupantexpectations. A person willing to wait 50–70 sec in an apartment building may be willingto wait only 20–25 sec in an office building.4. DEMAND FOR QUALITY: Sophistication of controls and elevator capacity may be variedto cater to the expected taste of passengers. Large elevator cars and the smooth, longlife operation of a gearless elevator may convey an image of luxury even if a smallelevator having a less sophisticated system would be technically sufficient.Building CharacteristicsPhysical building characteristics are considered together with population characteristics todetermine size, speed, type, and location of elevator systems.1. HEIGHT: The distance of elevator travel (from lowest terminal to top terminal), number offloors, and floor height.2. BUILDING USE ANALYSIS: Location of building entrance areas of heavy use such ascafeteria, restaurant, auditorium, and service areas must be identified. Typically, abuilding should be planned to ensure that no prospective passengers must walk morethan 200 ft to reach an elevator.Elevator Systems And RegulationsThe parameters previously described outline the environment in which the elevator operates.Local code regulations and ANSI A17.1 requirements provide further elevator guidelines.Available elevator systems are analyzed to ensure that suitable speed, capacity, controls, andnumber of cars are selected.
  • 16. NotesMedium -and high-rise buildings utilize ELECTRIC GEARED TRACTION and ELECTRICGEARLESS TRACTION elevator systems. The main difference between the two systems liesin the hoisting machinery. General design considerations involving hoistway, machine room,and elevator planning are similar.ELECTRIC GEARLESS TRACTION ELEVATOR systems are available in preengineeredunits with speeds of 500 to 1200 fpm. Systems with greater speeds are also available.

Gearless elevators, when used in conjunction with appropriate electronic controls, offer theadvantages of a long life and smoothness of ride.ELECTRIC GEARED TRACTION ELEVATOR systems are designed to operate within therange of 100 to 350 fpm, which restricts their use to medium-rise buildings.Both geared and gearless drive units are governed by electronic CONTROLS, whichcoordinate car leveling, passenger calls, collective operation of elevators, door operation, caracceleration and deceleration, and safety applications. A broad range of control systems areavailable to meet individual building requirements.STRUCTURAL REQUIREMENTS call for the total weight of the elevator system to besupported by the MACHINE BEAMS and transmitted to the building (or hoistway) structure.Consult with elevator consultants and structural engineers.If the elevator machine is to be supported solely by the machine room floor slab, the floor slabshall be designed in accordance with the requirements of ANSI A17.1.Check local codes for required fire enclosures.
  • 18. General NotesLow-rise buildings may use either oil hydraulic or electric elevator systems. Elevator selection,arrangement, and design of lobby and cars are similar in both cases. The primary differencesbetween the two systems are in their operational requirements. The hydraulic elevator systemis described below; the electric elevator system on the next page.The major architectural considerations of the hydraulic elevator are the machine room,normally located at the base, and the hoistway serving as a fire protected, ventilated

Adequate structure must be provided at the base of thehoistway to bear the load of the elevator car and its supporting piston or cylinder.Generally speaking, oil hydraulic elevators are used in applications requiring limited verticaltravel usage and low speed.
  • 20. GeneralWheelchair lifts are suitable for retrofits of buildings that are not barrier free. Bridges areavailable from manufacturers for installation over stairs. Recommended speed:10 to 19 fpm.Capacity: 500 to 750 lb.Lifts operate on standard household current and are suitable for interior or exteriorapplications.
  • 21. Inclined stair lifts can be adapted to straight run and spiral stairs. Standard types run alongguide rails or tubes fastened to solid wall, stairs, or floor structure. Power units may be placedat the top or bottom of the lift run or in the lift chassis, depending on the manufacturer. Someinclined lift systems fold up out of the way for daily stair use.Where stair width necessitates a more compact lift, as in residential use, chair lifts areavailable for straight run or spiral stairs. However, many inclined stair lifts come with standardfold-down seats.Recommended speed, 20 to 25 fpm on straight runs, 10 fpm on curved sections. Capacity,500 lb. Typical platform size, 30 x 40 in. Check local code capacities.
  • 22. GeneralAn Area of Rescue Assistance (ARA) is defined in the Americans with Disabilities ActAccessibility Guidelines (ADAAG) as "an area, which has direct access to an exit, wherepeople who are unable to use stairs may remain temporarily in safety to await furtherinstructions or assistance during emergency evacuation." ARAs are also known as "Area forEvacuation Assistance" in the Uniform Building Code and as "Area of Refuge" in NFPA 101and CABO/ANSI A117.1—1992. Note the exception in ADAAG section 4.1.3(9) for facilitieshaving a supervised automatic sprinkler system. ADAAG does not require ARAs in alterationsor existing facilities.These seven case studies provide examples of several ways to configure the ARA to meetADAAG and UBC requirements. They provide a starting point for designing facilities andmeeting the requirements of building officials. Verify design for compliance with local andstate building codes.The ADA requires that the design of ARAs satisfy the building official having jurisdiction overthe project. The ARA provisions in ADAAG were modeled after similar requirements in the1991 edition of the UBC. The order of case studies corresponds to the seven options underADAAG section 4.3.11.1.LegendA.
