European standards:

EN 81-1 and EN 81-2

The BlueKit® complies with the harmonised standards EN 81-1 and EN 81-2. The harmonised standards set minimum requirements for the safety of lift users in the lift car and people working in the lift shaft or engine room. In order that there is always sufficient breathable air available an adequate ventilation of the shaft is required, where at an opening with a free cross-sectional area of at least 1% of the shaft base surface is recommended at the upper end of the lift shaft. The BlueKit® enables an adequate ventilation in accordance with EN 81-1 and EN 81-2.

In August 20014, the two updated versions EN 81-20 and EN 81-50 have been put into action. Starting September 2017, these will be legally binding. Due to higher demands for the ventilation of elevator shafts in air-tight buildings, the minimum opening of 1% of the free cross-sectional area will no longer be taken into consideration in order to meet the state-of-the-art technology.

EN 81-80

This standard is a checklist for existing lifts which is highlighting risks based on a risk analysis. The assessment of the lift based on EN 81-80 evaluates amongst other things the ventilation of the lift car, the lift shaft and the engine room. The BlueKit ® system meets the requirements of EN 81-80 with respect to the ventilation fair, by ensuring adequate breathing air through the recognition of persons inclusion in the cabin and maintenance personnel in the elevator shaft.

EN 12101-2

In addition, our BlueKit® installations are equipped with natural smoke and heat extraction devices according to EN-12101-2.
