  1. DELIVERY TO SITE – In order to facilitate efficient and safe materials handling
    1. Provide level clear access for delivery of the lift equipment by truck with Hiab.
    2. The equipment + packaging weigh approximately 1200kg (dependant on number of floors).
    3. We allow 2 men 2 hours for delivery. We must be able to carry the equipment a maximum of 50m to the shaft along smooth and hard level ground.
    4. If delivery is difficult, we may need assistance from a crane or forklift which will be charged for accordingly.
  2. STORAGE – The equipment is required to be stored properly
    1. Provide dry, clean, safe and secure storage of the lift equipment whilst it is on site.
    2. The location of the storage area shall be within 10m of the lift shaft and the machine room.
    3. Area required is approximately 8m² (6-8 Items and boxes and weighs 1200kg)
  3. LIFT SHAFT PIT
    1. Pit is to be built to the dimensions specified on the drawings (The pit depth is from the level base to FFL (finished floor level) at the bottom floor).
    2. Where a pit is not possible a ramp into the cabin will be required to avoid the trip hazard.
    3. Pit must be able to sustain loads as specified on drawings. The loads are transferred to the floor and below the running gear side of the shaft of approximately 40,000N downwards.
    4. Lift shaft pit must be clean and absolutely dry. No seepage or damp areas are permitted (this is a safety requirement and will affect the long term durability of the equipment). Any drains installed into pits must not flow into water courses and must have valves preventing flooding of the pit.
    5. If the pit is in an area that may flood, we recommend a sump in the pit (the sump should be large enough to accommodate a submersible pump).
  4. LIFT SHAFT – Shaft must be constructed as per the Lift Shop layout drawings and specification
    1. Tolerance in shaft dimensions is +/- 10mm for all installation layouts.
    2. The shaft must be able to sustain loads as specified on drawings. (see page 2 of the lift drawing, top right hand corner for loads, the main load is about 3000N dynamic in the horizontal plane outwards and are transferred to the floor below the running gear side of the shaft – approximately 40,000N downwards). A structural engineer must ensure that the building and shaft can safely support all loads imposed by the lift equipment.
    3. The shaft LOAD BEARING WALL is to be solid (not hollow) in either poured or pre-cast concrete, core filled block work or steel framing designed by a structural engineer (when steel is involved extra installation hours may apply for welding of brackets and will be charged for where applicable. Note that all structural welding is the responsibility of others.). Note that all four sides of the shaft are to be impenetrable.
    4. Where any sections of the shaft walls are being constructed in glass, please ensure the glass is a minimum of 10.76mm laminated safety glass. Further, there are to be no ledges inside the shaft exceeding 50mm.
    5. The wall containing the landing doors is also to be solid and strong enough to hold the landing door and jamb set supplied and installed by Lift Shop (The landing doors place the same load as any heavy door does on the surrounding structure).
    6. Internal shaft sizes shown on drawings are inside finished dimensions (where render or cladding is to be applied to the inside of the shaft this must be accounted for and finished to the specified dimensions).
    7. When glass cabin doors are ordered the wall above and below door openings will be visible from inside the lift car while travelling and should be considered when finishing the inside of the shaft.
    8. Shaft must be PLUMB, SQUARE, SMOOTH and LEVEL with no protrusions/ledges and free from debris.
    9. Load bearing wall and door opening sides must be plumb +/- 5mm.
    10. No other services are to be in the shaft, only services directly relating to the lift are to occupy the lift shaft.
  5. LIFT SHAFT PENETRATIONS and DUCTING TO THE CONTROLLER LOCATION
    1. Provide a single penetration into the lift shaft (usually a 100mm core hole). The location is generally 2000mm off the ground level and in the wall near where the machine room area is (it is preferred to be in the corner of the drive side wall. If an alternate wall is chosen, then the cables must be able to be passed to the drive side wall without crossing a door wall).
    2. Where the controller location is not alongside the shaft, 100mm x 50mm inspectable duct is required to the core hole in the shaft wall. Please make sure that your sales designer is aware of the length of ducting from the machine area to the shaft for the manufacturing of the lift equipment (If it is run in a conduit, then a 150mm diameter pipe with maximum 45 degree or sweeping bends and draw line are required).
    3. Finishing of the duct or conduit and its entry into the shaft is the responsibility of the builder or client.
    4. If in doubt of placement of penetration please consult your installation team once we arrive on site.
  6. LANDING DOOR OPENINGS
    1. RAW openings are required to be 40mm wider and 20mm (from FFL) taller than the specified jamb size to allow for adjustment during installation of the lift cabin (ensuring better alignment of door and cabin).
    2. RAW openings are required to be solid (not hollow brick or masonry) allowing fixation to the floor and all three sides of the door frame.
    3. In some cases a rebate is required to allow for the threshold to sit level with the floor (details of this are included on the supplied factory drawings).
    4. When fire rated, the landing doors may fit behind the wall into a rebate to be created by the builder (details of this are on your factory drawings).
    5. The dimension given from the inside of shaft wall to the RAW opening is to be maintained accurately (this is the set out point for the cabin openings).
    6. Supply a mark 1000mm above FFL on each floor on one side of the raw opening to confirm the height of the landing door threshold (this will ensure better alignment of flooring once installed).
    7. Finishing of the reveal and flooring, along with any grouting or make good of openings should be completed after the landing doors are installed.
    8. Remember doors are not waterproof and contain electrics; these should be protected from the weather at all times, before, during and after installation.
  7. COSMETIC & OTHER CONSIDERATIONS
    1. If clear glass landing doors have been ordered then the inside of the shaft will be visible, we strongly recommend finishing the inside of the shaft (internal finished shaft dimensions must be maintained).
    2. The landing doors are not waterproof and in outdoor applications will require protection from the weather, awnings, weather shields or enclosures are recommended for durability and warranty.
    3. No other services are to be in the shaft, only services directly relating to the lift are to occupy the lift shaft.
    4. All shafts exposed to sunlight must be maintained at less than 40 degrees Celsius via an automatic system.
  8. LANDING BUTTONS
    1. Landing buttons are typically located in the landing door jamb.
    2. If you have requested fire rating, weatherproof buttons or the buttons to be located elsewhere then cut outs will be required in neighboring walls to accommodate button boxes. We recommend these are located approximately 900mm above finished floor and near to the handle side of the door (grouting and finishing of the installed button box surrounds are required by the builder).
  9. SHAFT ROOF
    1. The shaft ceiling can be higher than the specified headroom dimension on the drawing, but must not be lower when measured from FFL on the top landing.
    2. The roof of the shaft shall be constructed so as to prevent access to the shaft from above (it must be of non-removable type and able to support loads up to 200kg).
  10. SHAFT LIGHTING and UNI- STRUTS
    1. By Lift Shop
  11. LIFT CONTROLLER ROOM OR LOCATION
    1. Provide a dedicated single phase (240V), 20 amp supply with a 3m tail to the lift controller location (exact location of cables should be discussed with your lift designer or installation team), fed from the line side of the building main switch with its own circuit breaker in the main board (in accordance with AS3000). Fire rated mains are only required if specified by an architect or consultant.
    2. Provide lighting and emergency lighting to the lift controller.
    3. If you require a fire rated room for the controller, then you should check with your specifier if it is required to have a self-closing door with night latch and key at the entrance where required the door must open outwards and be a minimum 820mm wide x 2000mm high.
    4. Provide minimum 600mm clear access and 2100mm minimum height in front of the controller to satisfy OH&S requirements for servicing.
    5. Lift controller room (where applicable) must be clean, dry and free from humidity.
    6. In the case of emergency we must have access to the controller. Provide a clear walkway, passage or stairs for access . The lift should not be used as access.
  12. LIFT TELEPHONE
    1. Provide an active telephone line (auto-dialler phones will require a dedicated line) to the lift machine area with a 3m tail alongside the electrical supply to the controller (the telephone may be connected to a switchboard provided that an outside line can be accessed from within the lift car at all times).
    2. Minimum voltage required at the supplied socket is 42V (a line filter may be required if ADSL is connected).
    3. Lift Shop will provide a telephone handset inside the cabin and connect to the supplied socket in the machine area (Normally in an individual residence, the line can be shared with the home phone).
  13. DURING CONSTRUCTION and INSTALLATION
    1. Supply, install and maintain approved or suitable shaft protection barricades on all shaft entries – to preventing objects or people falling into the shaft until landing doors are installed into the shaft. (if required to be supplied by Lift Shop, please discuss with our representatives for hire options).
    2. Provide rubbish bins. (The lift equipment comes in cardboard boxes and packing crates and will be about 3m² of rubbish, a small skip bin is usually sufficient).
    3. The lift and controller must be protected from the weather. (Items are NOT waterproof).
    4. Scaffold is to be provided by the client (if required to be supplied by Lift Shop, please discuss with our representatives for options).
  14. FLOORING BY CLIENT
    1. Where selected, a maximum thickness of 20mm and weight of 50kg is allowed.
  15. MAINTENANCE LOCK SAFE (OPTIONAL ACCESSORY)
    1. An access key safe is optional in private homes; if you are a service customer then you may request this to enable us to have 24 hour emergency access (where required this will be at the clients cost).
    2. Please advise your installers of a location external to the house for this to be installed.
  16. LIFT MANUFACTURE
    1. This document along with the final design drawings are to be carefully checked for accuracy and signed for acceptance prior to manufacture commencing. Once these are signed they are binding and final.
    2. The lift will not be placed into manufacture until documents are signed and second payment is received.

I understand it is my responsibility to obtain any necessary approvals / permits prior to the lift being installed.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
