Elevator Traffic Handbook: Theory and Practice by Gina Carol Barney

By Gina Carol Barney

Vertical transportation platforms (elevators, lifts, escalators and passenger conveyors) are utilized in just about all constructions of quite a lot of tales excessive. site visitors layout and regulate, particularly the circulation of individuals via typical and mechanical skill, have to be deliberate conscientiously because the bills of lower than- or over-provision are significant and alterations should not regularly attainable. the topic is roofed in 4 sections. the elemental rules of stream and an advent to lifts are set out initially, after which site visitors layout tools are defined, via an exam of study and regulate. The sections are whole in themselves and are provided extensive, with labored examples and case experiences as applicable. the newest research suggestions are set out, and the publication is updated with present know-how. the maths is simplified anyplace attainable and copious references are given for extra learn and examples. The practicing vertical transportation engineer concerned with the sizing of a vertical transportation set up will locate this a good and authoritative source. different contributors of the layout groups: architects, builders and proprietors, will locate the publication an invaluable reference, and the desires of researchers, academics and scholars of the topic can also be happy by means of this easy presentation of the underlying conception. The engineering facets, which fall into the parts of producing and creation, usually are not coated, however the functional constraints and concerns are indicated.

12 Lifts and escalators: division of traffic Floors travelled Escalator Lift 1 90% 10% 2 75% 25% 3 50% 50% 4 25% 75% 5 10% 90% The provision of well signed and positioned stairs and escalators can considerably lessen the demands made on the lifts. Designers must take these factors into account. 5 FACILITIES FOR PERSONS WITH DISABILITIES The discussion so far has assumed that all persons circulating in a building are fully able-bodied. However, a large proportion of the population are disadvantaged in some way.

Thus to accommodate two passengers on each step, the side of each passenger’s body must overhang the step edges and intrude towards the balustrade interior panels. There is usually an extra width here, sometimes called the hip width, of some 200 mm, giving an overall hip width of some 1200 mm. This allows space for side by side occupation of a step by two passengers and, if necessary, a moving file of passengers alongside the stationary file. The back/front of each passenger’s body will also certainly touch the passengers standing behind and in front, as an escalator step depth is usually 400 mm.

Hence shoppers tend to hesitate and under busy conditions some queuing occurs. 4 Moving Ramps (passenger conveyors) Many shopping facilities these days provide trolleys for the shopper to use. If the shopping centre has several levels, shoppers are inconvenienced if they have to leave a trolley at one level to reach another level.
