Carrier Spacing This is the distance in feet or meters between each guest carrier (chair, gondola cabin).

Carrier Spacing can refer to either the time interval between carriers as they move through the terminal or the distance between carriers themselves. Typically, fixed grip lifts send a carrier past the load line every six seconds or so - a "six second" spacing. When used to describe distance, refers to the linear distance between the carriers. The design spacing is maintained on detachable lifts by means of a device called a spacer.
