Elevators are special equipment. For public elevators used in residential buildings, office buildings, etc., the State Administration of Market Supervision has been able to put into use only after compulsory safety inspections according to standards, and implement regular annual inspections. However, there were no specific regulations for home elevators.
Now the first national standard of GB/T 21739-2008 "Household Elevator Manufacturing and Installation Specifications" newly issued by the country will have clear inspection and installation specifications.
It is reported that the new standard not only specifies the basic safety requirements for home elevators, but also specifies the minimum requirements for buildings (building structures) where home elevators are installed.
At the same time, the new standard also regulates the relationship between consumers and elevator manufacturers, formulating 5 relationship issues:
1. Intended use (the owner must first explain the use of the elevator to the elevator manufacturer before installing the elevator);
2. Environmental conditions;
3. Civil engineering issues; other aspects of the installation site;
4. Applicability to users.
Previously, home elevator related issues have been plagued consumers. Because there is no standard, elevators have brought a lot of trouble to consumers. A consumer reported that there are often problems with his elevators. The elevators are always good and bad. The supplier’s maintenance staff have repaired a lot. This is not good. The safety of his elevators has been questioned. I hope the manufacturer can take these problems. The elevator was pushed down and replaced with a qualified new elevator, but the trouble was that there was no standard basis.
Now, the promulgation of new standards will provide good protection for consumers. Consumers will have standards to follow in installing and using elevators. The new standard will also protect the safety of consumers and reduce risks.
