Floor openings should extend not less than 24 inches nor more than 28 inches from the face of
the belt.
Adequate lighting of not less than three foot-candles should be provided at each floor landing
at all times when the manlift is in operation. Check with a calibrated light meter. Both runs of a

foot-candle should be maintained at all points.
