 English term or phrase: Satz High speed lifts dimensioned for maximum occupation ratios calculated on the basis of 10 square meters per capita with maximum waiting time of 30 seconds. Was bedeutet dieses "10m2 per capita occupation ratios"???
 German translation:BUILDING occupation rate Explanation:My guess would be that they are basing the time requirement on a maximum building occupation rate of 1 person per 10 sq. meters of floor space for the entire building. This seems reasonable as, if the building is occupied by MORE people, the elevators (OK, lifts) would be unable to meet the 30 second time limit.

Explanation:
1. Maximum occupation ratios sind maximale "(Personen)belegungsraten" (oder Auslastungsraten -> es geht doch um Fahrstühle/Aufzüge, oder?).

2. Für deren Berechnung wurde ein Verhältnis von 10 qm/Kopf (=Person) angenommen, was mich aber nun etwas verwirrt angesichts der in Aufzügen üblicherweise anzutreffenden Flächengrößenordnungen. Ist die Zahl um eine Dezimalstelle verrutscht (vielleicht 1/10)??
