Code-compliant elevator solutions



The European Committee of Standardisation released new safety standards in 2014 under EN81-20, which supersedes the previous EN81-1 standard. These changes were designed to bring lift safety in line with current insights, knowledge and technology.

While EN81-20 is not mandatory in Australia the reality is that the current standard EN81-1 will be withdrawn in Europe on 31 August 2017. In order to support the transition from the original safety standard to the current state of awareness reflected in EN81-20, we are committed to working in partnership with you to deliver best in class solutions and providing you with the optimal solution for lift equipment fully compliant with EN81-20.
