EN81 Lift Standards
Liftline - lifts, elevators for passengers and goods.
Due to the wide range of building arrangements, hospitals, flats, council, residential, offices, stations, airports, hotels, warehouses, factories, shops etc. the range of lifts and elevators needs to be equally varied.
Although the usage of lifts in an old persons home and on a council estate may be similar the elevators may require completely different features. The council unit may be subjected to abuse and must therefore be robust and vandal resistant, it may need CCTV cameras or flame resistant light fittings. The old persons lift may need, for example, exceptionally good levelling, large buttons and longer door open times so they can enter safely.
Similarly, installations in offices are likely to need to be just as various depending upon required usage. Are they needed to move office furnature and trollies, or the rapid transportation of persons into and out of the building or between floors when a single company may utilise several floors.
Liftline assesses the situation and can specify the lift accordingly.
