The most widely used elevator design is steel rope elevators. In this method, the cab is pulled up using steel ropes instead of being pushed from the bottom. Again with the help of steel ropes the elevator goes down. Steel ropes are connected to the elevator car by means of pulleys. When the reel turns, the ropes move.

This pulley is connected to an electric motor. This electric motor rotates the pulley. Depending on the forward or reverse rotation of the engine, the steel ropes pull or lower the cab. Said pulley, electric motor and the system controlling them are located on the body of the elevator.

The weight outside the elevator car and the elevator car move along the rails on the sides along the elevator's travel path. These rails prevent the weight and cab from swinging back and forth. At the same time, these rails work together with security systems to stop the cab in an emergency.

This is steel wire rope lifts hydraulic lifts are much more efficient and safe. It has more security systems. However, in order to prevent the elevators from compromising the safety of people and property, Elevator Maintenance and Operation Regulation It has been omitted. This regulation covers the operation, maintenance, periodic inspections, warranty conditions and the rules that must be followed for after-sales services.

In addition, the Regulation on Health and Safety in the Use of Work Equipment describes the conditions that must be complied with for the safe and healthy use of elevators. Accordingly, man and load-bearing elevators should be checked at least once a year unless another time is stipulated in the relevant standards.

Annexes of the Regulation on Maintenance, Repair and Periodic Inspections (Annex 3), elevators, Lifting and forwarding tools group. Accordingly, inspections and inspections must be carried out by mechanical engineers, machine technicians or high technicians. In addition, the electrical parts of the elevators should be checked by authorized persons.

During the periodic inspection of electric elevators, the following basic standards are also considered:

  • TS EN 81-3 + A1 Lifts - Safety regulations for construction and assembly - Part 3: Electrical and hydraulic service lifts
  • TS EN 13015 + A1 Maintenance of elevators and escalators - Rules for maintenance instructions
  • TS ISO 9386-1 Power-driven lifting platforms for handicapped people - Safety, dimensions and rules for functional operation - Part 1: Vertical lifting platforms
  • TS ISO 9386-2 Power-driven lifting platforms for mobility-impaired people - Safety, dimensions and functional requirements - Part 2: Power-driven stair lift for moving users, standing users and wheelchair users in a tilted plane

TÜRCERT certification body is also testing and inspection services also provides. If you want to get more information about the periodic inspection of the electric lift or to have these inspections and controls, TÜRCERT is ready to provide all the necessary services to organizations in every sector with its experienced managers and employees.
