Description

This Standard specifies the safety rules for permanently installed new passenger or goods passenger lifts. It covers lifts with traction, positive or hydraulic drive, serving defined landing levels, having a car designed for the transportation of people or people and goods, suspended by ropes or chains or jacks and moving between guide rails inclined not more than 15° to the vertical.

Scope

 This Standard does not cover:

  • a) lifts with:
    • 1) drive systems other than those stated in the description above;
    • 2) rated speed ≤ 0,15 m/s;
  • b) hydraulic lifts:
    • 1) with a rated speed exceeding 1 m/s;
    • 2) where the setting of the pressure relief valve exceeds 50 MPa;
  • c) new passenger or goods passenger lifts in existing buildings where in some circumstances due to limitations enforced by building constraints, some requirements of EN 81-20 cannot be met and EN 81-21 should be considered;
  • d) lifting appliances, such as paternosters, mine lifts, theatrical lifts, appliances with automatic caging, skips, lifts and hoists for building and public works sites, ships' hoists, platforms for exploration or drilling at sea, construction and maintenance appliances or lifts in wind turbines;
  • e) important modifications (see Annex C) to a lift installed before this Standard is brought into application;
  • f) safety during operations of transport, erection, repairs, and dismantling of lifts.

However, this Standard may usefully be taken as a basis. Noise and vibrations are not dealt with in this Standard as they are not found at levels which could be considered as harmful with regard to the safe use and maintenance of the lift.

This Standard is not applicable to passenger and goods passenger lifts, which are installed before the date of its publication.
