Defines requirements for the design, manufacture, installation, commissioning, testing, maintenance and dismantling of new permanently installed electrically powered homelifts.

This British Standard specifies requirements for the design, manufacture, installation, commissioning, testing, maintenance and dismantling of new permanently installed electrically powered homelifts with the following characteristics: travelling vertically between two predefined levels along a guided path where the inclination to the vertical does not exceed 15°; supported or sustained by wire rope or chains, hydraulic cylinder (direct or indirect), screw and nut; penetrating a single floor; affixed to a building structure; where the carrier is partially enclosed; having a speed not greater than 0.15m/s. This British Standard is applicable to homelifts that are installed in private dwellings and are intended for the transport of persons with impaired mobility, standing or seated, with or without a wheelchair. NOTE Although this British Standard is applicable to new homelifts, it can also be used as guidance for the refurbishment and re-installation of existing homelifts.
