  • Abstract:
    This Technical Specification gives rules for the intended use of the lift by persons with disabilities in order to assist the evacuation of a building. To achieve this objective, the selected lift(s) should be incorporated within an overall building design that includes all the usual stairs and escape routes without any reduction in their quantity or capacity. It specifies the special provisions and safety rules to assist persons with a disability to safely evacuate a building using lifts in relative safety with the help of suitably trained evacuation assistants. This specification does not define the number and size of lift required, or the size of door openings that shall be determined on a case-by-case basis by the building designer in line with applicable national regulations. This Technical Specification can be applied to permanently installed new: a) electric lifts, with traction or positive drive (as defined in EN 81-1); b) hydraulic lifts (as defined in EN 81-2). Requirements of this Technical Specification This Technical Specification defines requirements to allow safe lift use where: a) the building has not sustained structural damage e. g. from explosion, flood, lightening strike, earthquake, storm etc. b) the well and car are safe for persons to use. e. g. free from smoke, etc. c) a fire resisting structure for the lift provides suitable protection; d) some form of fire detection is provided at least at the lift and safe areas; e) power supplies are secure and reliable, the provision of a secondary supply is not essential but the cable providing power to the lift shall be fire protected to the same fire protection level as given to the lift well structure; f) a building secondary supply is not called for by national rules or provided, the lift shall have a provision to allow the lift to be recovered electrically to an adjacent safe area (floor); g) responsibility for safe evacuation rests with and is in the control of trained persons located at the building premises.
