Wednesday 18th September 2019

Over the last 10 years many types of lifting devices found in buildings have started to look and act the same.

This paper examines the types of devices available, the standards which should apply to their design, manufacture and installation and proposes guidelines to the recommended selection criteria for each type of device.
