- What pit depth do I need?
- Pit depth varies on the capacity of the lift and how fast it is travelling. It can vary from 1.4m to 4m. Different lift manufacturers also have preferred depths.
- What size lift is required for my building and how fast does it need to travel?
- The size of the lift depends on the use of the building (i.e. residential or offices and headcount per floor). Different uses have different peaks of traffic flow.
