Safe in lifts

Many times a day and over many years, lifts transport many people from one floor to another. According to statistics, lifts are not only the world’s most frequently used means of transport but also the safest one. Among others, standards make sure that this remains so.

A visualization of ÖNORM EN 81-20 “Safety rules for the construction and installation of lifts – Lifts for the transport of persons and goods – Part 20: Passenger and goods passenger lifts” is controlled by a gyrosensor that registers the speed of the lift car and starts the animation.
