Safety rules for the construction and installation of lifts. Lifts for the transport of persons and goods. New passenger and goods passenger lifts in existing building What is this standard about?
This European Standard specifies the safety rules related to new passenger and goods/passenger lifts permanently installed in existing buildings where in some circumstances due to limitations enforced by building constraints, some requirements of EN 81-20:2014 cannot be met.
This European Standard addresses a number of these constraints and gives requirements for alternative solutions. It will be read and applied in conjunction with the European Standard EN 81-20:2014.
This European Standard covers:
— either the construction and installation of one or more complete new lift(s) including new well and machinery spaces in an existing building; or
— the replacement of one or more existing lift(s) by new ones in existing well(s) and machinery spaces.
This European Standard does not cover:
— replacement or modifications of some parts to a lift already installed;
— other applications outside of the scope of EN 81-20:2014.
