Description

This European Standard applies to firefighters lifts equipped with a fire protected lobby.

This standard deals with the significant hazards, hazardous situations and events relevant to firefighters lifts when they are used as intended and under the conditions as foreseen by the installer.

This standard gives the additional or deviating requirements to BS EN 81-1 and 2 and BS EN 81-5, 6 and 7 for lifts which may be used for firefighting and evacuation purposes under firefighters control.

This standard covers only those requirements which relate to the lift installation. It does not prescribe requirements for the fire resisting structure of the building essential to provide the fire protected lobby.

This standard does not consider the use of lifts with partially enclosed wells for use as firefighters lifts. It ceases to apply if the fire eventually breaks into a fire protected lobby.

This standard is not applicable to:

  • double-deck lifts
  • lifts installed in existing buildings
  • important modification to existing lift installed before the publication of this standard
  • dual entry lifts, where the protected firefighters lift protected lobbies are not located on the same side as that of the fire service access level.
