scope:

This specification covers the specifications, safety requirements, performance, design, practices, marking instructions and test methods for Multi-Story Building External Evacuation Platform Rescue Systems (PRS) for emergency escape of persons who cannot use the normal means of egress to a safe area and for transport of emergency responders vertically.

This specification is applicable only to PRSs:

Permanently installed;

Designed for multi-cycle and repetitive use; and

Where descent is controlled to limit speed before arrival at a floor or landing zone.

This specification does not cover:

Platform devices that are used primarily for purposes other than emergency evacuation or access, or both;

Helicopters or other flying platforms;

Any other devices covered under/within ASME A17.1;

A PRS utilizing platform(s) that can be transported to or between buildings during operations; and

APRS using driving methods other than positive drive as drum and ropes.

Operation of a PRS is limited to trained and authorized operators.

The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.

Exception-In 5.2.1 and 5.2.2, inch-pound units are provided in parentheses after the SI units for information only.

This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
