Fires in and around Lifts

J Inglis

Friday 1st May 1992

In the buildings of today and in the future we need to expand our understanding of the effects fire can have on safety, and in particular how we protect life and property from the effects of fire. This paper will highlight many of the issues to be addressed during the design, construction and maintenance of a modern building and its lifts. The lift landing entrance will be covered in detail along with other items such as shaft walls, ventilation of shafts, sprinkler locations, fire and smoke lobbies many of which are covered by Lift Codes or Building Regulations.
