Safety requirements for lifting tables - Part 2: Lifting tables serving more than 2 fixed landings of a building, for lifting goods with a vertical travel speed not exceeding 0,15 m/s
|Publication Date:||1 November 2016|
|ICS Code (Other lifting equipment):||53.020.99|
This European Standard specifies the safety requirements applicable to lifting tables presenting the following characteristics:
- serving more than two fixed landings of a construction;
- able to pass landings;
- designed exclusively for lifting or lowering goods and not persons;
- only accessible to persons during the loading/unloading phases;
- with a travel speed of no more than 0,15 m/s;
- permanently installed.
This European Standard deals with all significant hazards pertinent, with the exception of noise, to lifting tables when used as intended and under the conditions foreseen by the manufacturer (see Clause 4). This European Standard specifies the appropriate technical measures for eliminating and reducing the risks arising from the significant hazards.
This European Standard does not apply to the following equipment:
- permanently installed lifting tables, serving specific levels of a construction, with a vertical travel speed exceeding 0,15 m/s (EN 81-31);
- lifting tables serving not more than two fixed landings of a construction (EN 1570-1);
- lifting tables, serving more than 2 fixed landings of a construction for lifting operators, with a vertical travel speed not exceeding 0,15 m/s;
- lifting tables carrying operators and installed in enclosures with a vertical travel speed not exceeding 0,15 m/s;
- lifting tables used on ships;
- lifting tables designed for artists and stage set features during artistic performances;
- lifting tables driven by pusher chains.
This European Standard does not establish the additional requirements for:
- electromagnetic compatibility;
- operation in severe conditions (e.g. extreme climates, freezer applications, strong magnetic fields);
- operation subject to special rules (e.g. potentially explosive atmospheres, mines);
- handling of loads, the nature of which could lead to dangerous situations (e.g. molten metal, acids, radiating materials, particularly brittle loads, loose loads (gravel, tubes));
- hazards occurring during construction, transportation and disposal;
- equipment installed on the load platform or the replacing or maintaining of it;
- integration into broader systems or other machines, etc.;
- cable-less controls;
- lifting tables where the hydraulic pressure is derived directly from gas pressure;
- lifting tables powered by internal combustion engines.
