Twinpost above-ground 3-stage

This configuration provides the maximum height for hydraulic elevators. Its 3 stage telescoping design is capable of reaching travel distances of up to 33’-6.5” of travel with minimum pit and overhead. However, travel heights up to 48’-3.5” are obtainable with a small increase in pit depth and/or overhead height.

Additional Travel: Pit and/or overhead increases 1" for every 3" of net travel over 33'-6 1/2" up to 48'-3 1/2". Maximum 2'-0" allowed in overhead. Travel limitations may vary depending upon model, application weights and specific job requirements.

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

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.

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.
