  • Abstract:
    This document applies to travelators, with or without tunnel, for tourist or winter sporting use. These requirements concern travelators for transporting passengers (users and operators) on their snow-sliding devices or pedestrians wearing ski boots or heavy boots for winter sports activities. For other uses, passengers (users and operators) shall wear footwear that is suitable (closed-toe, robust shoes) for travelators. The standard provides that the travelator is used by children under the age of 5 only if they are accompanied or supervised. This document addresses the automatic operation of these devices without an operator who is continuously present at the site of the equipment. It includes requirements for the prevention of accidents and the protection of users and operators. This document addresses all the significant hazardous phenomena and hazardous situations and events specific to travelators for tourist or winter sporting activities when they are used as intended and in cases of improper use that could be reasonably foreseen by the manufacturer. This document does not apply to moving walks as specified in EN 115-1:2017 or to boarding bands as specified in EN 1907:2017. This document does not apply to travelators manufactured before the date of its publication as a European Standard.
