From the Back Cover:

The bible of elevator and escalator system design for more than four decades—now completely revised and updated

Over the past forty years, profound changes in technology, building codes, and the demands of the marketplace have transformed the vertical transportation industry. The Vertical Transportation Handbook, Fourth Edition incorporates all of these changes and innovations as it surveys the entire range of vertical transportation (VT) mechanisms—from elevators and wheelchair platforms to escalators and moving walks.

Emphasizing modernization of existing systems, The Vertical Transportation Handbook, Fourth Edition enables the layperson to understand how specific elevators and escalators are applied, installed, operated, regulated, specified, and maintained. New coverage of topics such as machine room–less systems and current operation and control procedures ensures that this revision maintains its standing as the premier general reference on VT.?

Other outstanding features of this new edition include:

  • A complete overview of all aspects of vertical transportation, including unconventional applications and the latest trends

  • A nontechnical introduction to elevatoring principles

  • Expanded coverage of international practices and procedures

  • Samples of actual maintenance contracts

  • Current safety requirements for escalators and elevators during fires, earthquakes, and other emergencies

The most comprehensive publication of its kind, The Vertical Transportation Handbook, Fourth Edition is an indispensable tool for architects, contractors, and real estate professionals who must assess the best and most efficient mechanisms for moving people and freight in buildings of any type.
