• Class C-1 (Industrial Truck Loading – truck carried by elevator) — 50 lbs. per sq. ft., but not less than load, including weight of truck.

• Class C-2 (Industrial Truck Loading – truck is normally used for loading and unloading only and is not usually carried by elevator) — for elevators of 20,000 lbs. capacity or less
capacity shall equal the weight of the loaded truck — maximum load on platform during
loading and unloading not exceed 150% of rated load.

• Class C-3 (Other loading with heavy concentrations where truck is not usually used) — 5 – lbs. per. sq. ft., but not less than load.
