IDEAL PLAN FOR MAXIMUM EFFICIENCY ON LOAD AND UNLOAD CART LOBBY STATIONS

The preferred CART-MATIC architectural layout provides ample space on both the Dispatch and Return sides of the Service Level. Generous space on the Return side is particularly desirable since a large number of carts are often returned simultaneously.

The ideal arrangement is an adequate open area restricted to personnel using the CART-MATIC Cart System.

      ASME A17.1a-2005 requires that where a transfer of load is in a nonrestricted area, there shall be a clearance of not less than 48” (1 220mm) between the end of the transferred load and any fixed obstruction in line with the end of the load. ASME A17.1a-2005 7.7.2

  Hoistway Door, Car and Shaft Requirements  
    The following tables contain the minimum dimensional requirements for Courion’s CART-MATIC Cart System. If you are in the planning stages, please use these dimensions for the layout of your CART-MATIC Cart System. If you are modernizing an existing hoistway, please contact one of Courion’s Sales Engineers and we will be glad to help you reach your objectives.  
                   
      Hydraulic Elevators        
       
      The above Shaft, Pit, and Overhead dimensions are for a direct or holeless jack hydraulic lift. Depending on the lift manufacturer selected, the shaft, pit, and overhead dimensions may vary slightly from those noted above.  
                   
      Traction Elevators        
       
      The above Shaft, Pit, and Overhead dimensions are for a traction lift. Depending on the lift manufacturer selected, the shaft, pit, and overhead dimensions may vary slightly from those noted above.  
                   
  Vertical Transportation Speed  
   

The selection of vertical transportation equipment is a function of many variables, including the physical space available for the CART-MATIC Cart System, the nature of material to be moved by the CART-MATIC Cart System, the number of landings to be served, and the total travel required between floor levels.

The tables below provide the suggested Feet Per Minute and the total cycle time for a round trip of the CART-MATIC lift assuming a 12’-0” floor height. The efficient movement of materials must be tailored to the needs and design of the individual owner. Courion’s sales engineers are available to consult with architects and owners to help them set and reach their objectives.

 
                   
       
                   
  Machine Room Requirements  
      Machine Room dimensions vary based on the size and type of building. Courion suggests that a machine room for a CART-MATIC Cart System provide the minimum space: One Car = 11’-0” x 12’-0” Two Cars = 15’-0” x 14’-0”.
