Description

This Standard provides the specifications to build and maintain New Zealand Building Code compliant platform and low-speed lifts for both domestic and some public settings that are safe, fit for purpose and useable by all people.

This Standard applies to domestic buildings and to public buildings up to a few storeys high only.

Scope

This Standard specifies requirements for platform lifts (as defined in 2.2.2) and low-speed lifts (as defined in 2.2.1) that are installed as part of a building and that provide access to and within the building.

Where the NZBC requires a lift be installed it shall be on an accessible route.

Platform lifts shall have a speed of 0.15 m/s or less and travel no more than 7.5 m. Low-speed lifts shall have a speed of 0.3 m/s or less and travel no more than 15 m. Platform lifts and low-speed lifts can be used in residential or public buildings provided the requirements of this Standard are met.

This Standard also specifies general requirements for stairlifts and inclined lifting platforms (as defined in 2.2.3).

Stairlifts and inclined lifting platforms can be used in residential buildings and, in certain situations subject to specific consideration and approval outside of this Standard in public buildings. Stairlifts and inclined lifting platforms shall have a speed of 0.15 m/s or less in the direction of travel.

Lifts in buildings other than single household units need to be on a compliance schedule (see section 11 and Appendix A).
