Transcript Adaptability--- d'Humy Motoramps are adapted to use in buildings of practically any size, proportion or contour, where ramps can be used. The miniature plans reproduced here are indicative of the range of their application. This is by no means the limit of adaptability and is presented by way of suggestion only. Plots of Varying Rectangular Proportion Minimum "Stagger" Portions Odd Plot Contours For a rectangular plot, a garage with double ramps for large capacity in a tall building. A large-capacity building on a regular plot, in which double concentric ramps are provided to meet the heavy traffic requirements. Long narrow plot—high building- double stagger ramp system. - - - - 3 ■ I M D p v J- ±J p 1 i 1 H 20 A garage for an irregular plot, where the staggered levels are confined to the jog. Here the stagger portion is confined to minimum area to preserve two unbroken facades. gpmmiii] A garage for an "L" shaped plot whose dimensions demand one double storage row. An irregular plot — with the ramps placed in the widest portion of the garage.
