Elevator layout drawings shall, in addition to other data, indicate the following:
(a) the maximum bracket spacing (see Section 2.23)
(b) the estimated maximum vertical forces on the guide rails on application of the safety or other retarding device (see Section 2.23 and 2.19.3)
(c) in the case of freight elevators for Class B or Class C loading (see 2.16.2.2), the horizontal forces on the guide-rail faces during loading and unloading, and the estimated maximum horizontal forces in a post-wise direction on the guide-rail faces on the application of the safety device (see Section 2.23)
(d) the size and linear weight in kilograms per meter (pounds per foot) of any rail reinforcement, where provided (see Section 2.23)
(e) the total static and impact loads imposed on machinery and sheave beams, supports, and floors or foundations (see Section 2.9)
(f) the impact load on buffer supports due to buffer engagement at the maximum permissible speed and load (see 8.2.3)
(g) where compensation tie-down is applied (see 2.21.4.2), the load on the compensation tie-down supports
(h) the total static and dynamic loads from the governor, ropes, and tension system
(i) the horizontal forces on the building structure stipulated by 2.11.11.8 and 2.11.11.9
(j) the maximum upward movement (see 2.4.6)
(k) locations of access panels and protective guards when provided in compliance with 2.8.2.4(b)
