Standard elevators are designed for Class A loading. Other types of loading place more stress on the dskelevator. If an elevator’s loading class is not known, it should be treated as if it is Class A. Using a loading method from any other class could be dangerous.
Class B applies to freight elevators that are intended only to transport motor vehicles. These elevators can transport a vehicle with a weight up to the stated capacity of the elevator.
Class C1 allows for the use of an industrial truck to load or unload an elevator. The combined weight of the truck and the load cannot total more than the weight capacity of the elevator. The truck can remain in the elevator while it is in operation.
Class C2 allows for loading at the platform up to 150 percent of the elevator’s stated capacity. A one-piece load with a weight equal to the capacity of the China Passenger Elevator can be loaded with a forklift or lift truck onto the platform. The loading device must be removed before the elevator can be operated.
