What is the Definition of Freight Elevator?

Freight Elevator


Definition: An elevator used to carry freight, typically separate from a passenger elevator. Elevators should be adequate in terms of speed, load capacity, safety, number, and they should be able to meet peak period demands. Appraisers judge the adequacy of elevators using established standards (e.g. one elevator per 25,000-40,000 square feet of GBA). Elevator service impacts the overall functionality of the property.
