Travel limitations vary depending on model.

Car Top Railing: If required per rule 2.14.1.7.1 of the ASME A17.1 safety code, clear overhead becomes 12'-5" up to 100 fpm or 12'-8" over 100 fpm.

Safety beams are required by OSHA 1926.502, provided and installed by others as directed by TKE. Clear overhead dimensions shown are to the bottom of the beam; the beam may not encroach into these required clear overhead dimensions.

For multiple elevators, add 4" for a divider beam between hoistways.

If ASME A17.1-2000 thru ASME A17.1-2007 is applicable to your building, please contact your local ThyssenKrupp Sales Representative to verify the requirement for a pocket or wider hoistway to accommodate a 7” pit ladder.
