The bible of elevator and escalator system design for more than three decades-now completely revised and updated

Over the past thirty years, profound changes in technology, building codes, and the demands of the marketplace have transformed the vertical transportation industry.

Emphasizing modernization of existing systems, VTH, Third Edition enables the layperson to understand how specific elevators and escalators are applied, installed, operated, regulated, specified, and maintained. New chapters focus on advanced technologies, the growing impact of microprocessors, emergency operating systems, the role of the consultant, traffic studies, and more.
