active, Most Current
Organization: CEN
Publication Date: 1 September 2000
Status: active
Page Count: 66
ICS Code (Lifts. Escalators): 91.140.90
scope:

This standard deals with power operated temporarily installed builders hoists (referred to as "hoists" in this standard) intended for use by persons who are permitted to enter sites of engineering and construction, serving landing levels, having a load carrying device:

- designed for the transportation of goods only;

- guided;

- travelling vertically or along a path within 15 degrees max. of the vertical;

- supported or sustained by drum driven wire rope, chain, rack and pinion, hydraulic jack (direct or indirect), or an expanding linkage mechanism;

- where masts, when erected, may or may not require support from separate structures;

- which permits the access of instructed persons during loading and unloading;

- which are driven by appointed persons;

- which permits, if necessary, during erection, dismantling, maintenance and inspection, the access and travel by persons who are competent and authorised.

The standard identifies hazards as listed in clause 4 which arise during the various phases in the life of such equipment and describes methods for the elimination or reduction of these hazards when used as intended by the manufacturer.

This European standard does not specify the additional requirements for:

- operation in severe conditions (e.g. extreme climates, strong magnetic fields);

- lightning protection;

- operation subject to special rules (e.g. potentially explosive atmospheres);

- electromagnetic compatibility (emission, immunity);

- handling of loads the nature of which could lead to dangerous situations (e.g. molten metal, acids/bases, radiating materials, fragile loads);

- the use of combustion engines;

- the use of remote controls;

- hazards occurring during manufacture;

- hazards occurring as a result of mobility;

- hazards occurring as a result of being erected over a public road;

- earthquakes;

- noise.

This standard is not applicable to

- builders hoists for persons and materials;

- lifts according to EN 81-1:1998, 81-2:1998 and !EN 81-3:2000";

- inclined hoists according to !EN 12158-2:2000";

- work cages suspended from lifting appliances;

- work platforms carried on the forks of fork trucks;

- work platforms;

- funiculars;

- lifts specially designed for military purposes;

- mine lifts;

- theatre elevators;

- special purpose lifts.

This standard deals with the hoist installation. It includes the base frame and base enclosure but excludes the design of any concrete, hard core, timber or other foundation arrangement. It includes the design of mast ties but excludes the design of anchorage bolts to the supporting structure. It includes the landing gates and their frames but excludes the design of any anchorage fixing bolts to the supporting structure.
