Mechanical Lift Analysis
This section is a consolidation of the information obtained during the survey process,
interviews, and observations at the sites of the sixteen 16 installations.
Survey materials and a detailed list of all agency contacts participating in this Analysis
are included in Section Seven.
The synopsis for each of the 16 site locations includes an outline of performance
characteristics, a diagrammatic floor plan, and photographs of the immediate lift
environment. (The plan diagrams include symbols indicate the direction of related
Issues that appear in red italics identify problems with the particular lift system
installation, and those that appear in green italics represent good design solutions.
At the end of this section is a summary matrix comparing the 16 installations, as they
relate to the extensive list of performance criteria. Where a relatively consistent problem
area for effective performance was indicated at several installations, a statement was
placed in the right margin of the matrix summarizing the issue or issues.
(All of the identified performance issues are summarized and discussed in detail as part
of the DETAILED ANALYSIS / FINDINGS in Sections Three of the Analysis.)
