    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Describes safety requirements for construction, manufacturing, installation, maintenance and dismantling of electrically operated stairlifts (chair, standing platform and wheelchair platform) affixed to a building structure, moving in an inclined plane and intended for use by persons with impaired mobility: - travelling over a stair or an accessible inclined surface; - intended for use by one person; - whose carriage is directly retained and guided by a guide rail or rails; - supported or sustained by rope, rack and pinion, chain, screw and nut, friction traction drive, and guided rope and ball.
