Q. What is meant by 2 stops?

A lift stop is a point at which the moving platform will stop and passengers or goods board or disembark the lift.  Therefore every lift has a minimum of 2 stops, the top entry/exit point and bottom entry/exit point.

A lift with up to a 5 stop capability, for example, can stop at 3 points along its travel for persons or goods to board or disembark.
