Transcript Design Data <•&* «^> t^> t^i Single Ramp Systems Double Ramp Systems Garage Design Data The following diagrams show the d'Humy Motoramp Systems in most general use. There are, however, others for special application. The stated limitations of capacities and heights here given do not apply in all cases. A definite recommendation will be made when opportunity is given us to study an individual project. (i) Single Ramps (2.) Wide Single Ramps rrfi Ramp Width—13'-6" (2. car spaces). For Building—Up to 300 car capacity and up to I stories height. (3) Concentric Undivided Ramp Width—2.0'-3" (3 car spaces). (More room for passing in aisleways^ For Building—300 to 500 cars capacity and up to 8 stories height. (4) Concentric Divided—Same Plane m Wrhl a Ramp Width—24'-o" clear. For Building—Over 500 cars capacity and up to 15 stories height. (5) Concentric Divided—Opposite Planes Ramp Width—13 '-€>" (2 car spaces). For Building—Over 500 cars capacty and up to 15 stories height. (6) Tandem—Same Planes flVnrnrgW Ramp Width—13'-6" (2 car spaces). For Building—Over 500 cars capacity and up 15 stories height. (7) Tandem—Opposite Planes Ramp Width—13'-6" (2 car spaces). For Building—Over 500 cars capacity and up 15 stories height. (8) Double Stagger System Ramp Width—13'-6" (2. car spaces). For Building—Over 500 cars capacity and up to 15 stories height. Consisting of two independent sets of single ramps of this or other traffic plan. This arrangement is for narrow buildings of 500 cars or greater capacity. The Company issues, for the use of architects and builders, "Garage Design Data," a loose-leaf publication. This presents the essential data which the designer of a multi-floor garage should have at hand to facilitate his planning. It contains between two covers the best thought of the Company's engineering staff. Copies are available to those who will find the information useful. 34
