tis elevators mostcommonly selected for specific travel heights(see product pages in this guide for other criteria):Travel under 20 feet:Otis Holeless Hydraulic ElevatorTravel from 15 to 30 feet:Otis Telescopic Holeless Hydraulic ElevatorTravel from 26 to 60 feet:Otis Roped Holeless Hydraulic Elevatorwhereexisting conditions include waterfront, hard-to-drillsubstrate, hazardous in-ground material or otherconditions that make it expensive to drill well hole.Travel from 15 to 60 feet:Otis Holed Hydraulic Elevator – where it is cost-effective to drill well holeTravel from 50 to 300 feet:Otis Gen2

Step 2: Elevator Quantity and Size
These are determined by floor population,building use or building type and nationaland local codes
To provide stretcher access, many states requirea minimum load capacity of 2,500 lbs withside-opening doors
3,500-lb capacity with center-opening door iscommon for mid- to high-rise buildings
