Bibliography

Provides the minimum requirements for the safe and independent access and use of lifts by persons, including persons with the disabilities.

This European standard specifies the requirements for the accessibility of new lifts serving defined landing levels, having a car designed for the transportation of persons, and moving along guide rails inclined at an angle of more then 15degrees to the horizontal. NOTE: This standard may be used as guidance for upgrading existing lifts in line with the recommandation of the European Commission dated 8th of June, 1995 (95/216/EC) concerning improvements to safety of existing lifts. This European standard describes three sizes of lifts offering different levels of accessibility to wheelchair users.
