ELEVATORS 14210 – Guide Specification for Fujitec Talon™ Drive Elevator


Guideline Specification

Fujitec Talon™ Drive Elevator System

The Fujitec Talon™ Drive Elevator System is a cost effective system for medium-rise buildings,
which does not require a separate traction elevator penthouse or large hydraulic machine room.
Talon’s compact motor and mechanical drive system minimize installation space requirement.
Building power supply requirements and power consumptions are significantly reduced. Elevator
support loads can be fully supported at the pit level of the elevator hoistway, minimizing building
structural support requirements. Combining Fujitec’s solid, state-of-art Millennium™ technology
control system with a new drive technology, it’s now possible for building owners and managers
to install and run the most environmentally friendly elevator system available in the market.


These specifications include all the information required for selecting the Fujitec Talon™ Drive
Elevator, including:
• System Description
• Quality Assurance
• References
• Submittal Data
• Delivery, Storage, and Handling
• Warranty
• Maintenance
• Product Manufacture, Materials, and Equipment Specifications
