Dear customer,

As you probably know, there is to be a significant change in the standards applied in our lift sector. The current EN-81:1 2001 + A3 and EN-81:2 2001 + A3 are to be replaced by EN-81:20 and EN-81:50.

In order to solve any doubts our customers may have regarding the way in which this change will affect our products, Dynatech has carefully studied the new standards and has also contacted the notified Bodies.

These are the main points to consider:

1. The new standards are to come into force as of late October 2014 in the EU and will undergo the translation and validation process in each country until around March 2015.

2. The former Standards will remain valid until 31st August 2017 and, therefore, both Standards will coexist for over 2 years.

3. No new certificate can be issued and the current certificates cannot be modified according to the new Standards until they have been validated in each country, in this case Spain.

4. None of our SAFETY GEARS will be affected by this change, as they are fully compliant with Standard EN-81-20 and EN-81-50. All that is required is an extension of the current certificates, which will be possible as of March 2015.

5. The same applies to our STAR, VEGA and QUASAR speed governors in all of their versions.

6. The LBD-300 governor will have to be redesigned. This is because the new Regulation requires a shorter distance between the interlock points and, therefore, the number of interlock points must be increased.

Dynatech is already designing the new model to replace the LBD-300. This must then be validated and certified in line with the new Standards. This new certification will be available as of late 2015.

7. The LBD-200 governor has the same disadvantage. In this case, we have decided to keep the same design for countries outside the EU only, i.e. countries with ASME influence.

It will be completely replaced in the EU by the VEGA governor, as this also has a diameter of 200 mm and covers the entire range of speeds, even more than the LBD-200. Furthermore, it is already fully compliant with the new Standards, as explained above.
