About This Item


Full Description


   The ASME A17.1/CSA B44, Safety Code for Elevators and Escalators, and ASME A17.7/CSA B44.7, Performance Based Safety Code for Elevators and Escalators, are the accepted guides for design, construction, installation, operation, inspection, testing, maintenance, alteration, and repair of elevators, dumbwaiters, escalators, moving walks, and material lifts. They are the basis in total or in part for elevator codes used throughout the United States and Canada.
   The ASME A17.1/CSA B44 Code and ASME A17.7/CSA B44.7 are only guides unless adopted as law or regulation by an authority having jurisdiction.
   Local jurisdictions may, in their adopting legislation, occasionally revise and/or include requirements in addition to those found in the ASME A17.1/CSA B44 and ASME A17.7/CSA B44.7 Codes. It is therefore advisable to check with the local jurisdiction before applying code requirements in any area.
   Requirement 1.1.2 outlines examples of equipment not covered by the ASMEA17.1/CSA B44 and ASMEA17.7/CSA B44.7 Codes. Requirement 1.1.3 specifies those Parts and requirements of the Code that apply only tonew installations, as well as those that apply to both new and existing installations.
