CUSHIONS." THE CUSHIONS SHALL SERVE TO DECELERATE THE CYLINDER NEAR THE END OF
ITS STROKE RESULTING IN A SMOOTH STOP AT FULL CYLINDER STROKE. EACH DOUBLE ROD
CYLINDER SHALL BE INSTALLED WITH BOTH ROD ENDS ATTACHED TO THE BASE SECTION,
PERMITING THE CYLINDER BARREL TO TRAVEL FORE AND AFT THROUGH THE LENGTH OF THE
BASE SECTION. THE EXTENSION CYLINDERS SHALL BE SO DESIGNED THAT THE CYLINDER
RODS ARE IN TENSION AT ALL TIMES THUS ELIMINATING THE POSSIBILITY OF BENDING OR
BUCKLING OF THE CYLINDER RODS.
CYLINDERS IN EXCESS OF 25 FEET WITH THE ROD EXTENDED, OR THAT REQUIRE THE
ATTACHMENT OF THE ROD TO THE MID SECTION, SHALL NOT BE DESIRABLE FOR TWO (2)
REASONS THAT ARE NOT CONSISTENT WITH THE LEVEL OF QUALITY DESIRED BY THE
PURCHASER:
1. ROD ATTACHMENT TO THE MID SECTION REQUIRES THAT THE LOWER RUNG RAIL CANNOT
BE SEALED FROM THE ATMOSPHERE AND THEREFORE LONG-TERM CORROSION CANNOT BE
ADEQUATELY CONTROLLED.
2. THE CYLINDER SHALL BE SUBJECTED TO THE BUCKLING FORCES CAUSED BY NORMAL
LADDER DEFLECTION.
CABLES ATTACHED TO THE BASE AND MID LADDER SECTIONS SHALL BE ROUTED OVER
SHEAVE WHEELS ON THE BASE SECTION AND CYLINDER BARREL.
THIS CABLING
ARRANGEMENT SHALL ACT AS A STROKE MULTIPLIER TO PROVIDE FULL-POWER LADDER
EXTENSION AND RETRACTION.
EXTENSION OF THE LADDER SECTIONS SHALL BE
ACCOMPLISHED BY THE MOVEMENT OF THE CYLINDER BARREL TOWARD THE TURNTABLE END
OF THE BASE SECTION, THUS PROVIDING BETTER WEIGHT DISTRIBUTION WHEN THE LADDER IS
EXTENDED.
69
RETRACTION OF THE LADDER SECTIONS SHALL BE ACCOMPLISHED BY MOVEMENT OF THE
BARREL TOWARD THE OUTBOARD END OF THE BASE SECTION, THUS PROVIDING BETTER
WEIGHT DISTRIBUTION BETWEEN FRONT AND REAR AXLES OF THE APPARATUS WHEN STOWED
IN THE TRAVEL POSITION.
THE EXTENSION/RETRACTION CABLES SHALL HAVE A MINIMUM SAFETY FACTOR OF 5:1 AND
SHALL BE OF THE FOLLOWING DIAMETERS: INNER MID SECTION: 9/16" / OUTER MID SECTION:
