Deflection Requirement of an Elevator Hoist Beam in Canada

Hi, for an elevator hoist beam that is only used when the elevator is serviced, is there any deflection requirement for it in Canada?

Don't know about Canada in particular, but why are you concerned? Any reasonable number will do.

Ask the elevator manufacturer if there any tolerances they require.  Other than that, be inventive and perform an EWAG.
