Safety of travelators for winter sport or tourist use

This European Standard is applicable for travelators, with or without a tunnel, for winter sport or leisure use.
These requirements are applicable to travelators for the transport of persons (either passengers or operators) wearing snow-sliding devices, or pedestrians wearing ski boots or heavy boots who may be holding their snow-sliding devices, for winter sports activities. For other uses, the persons (whether passengers or operators) shall wear suitable (enclosed and solid) footwear for travelators.
NOTE Snow-sliding devices include seated ski equipment for handicapped people.
This document has been prepared on the basis of the automatic operation of these installations with no staff permanently present at the actual installation.
It covers requirements relating to the prevention of accidents and the safety of operators.
This document covers all the significant hazards, hazardous situations and hazardous events specific to travelators for winter sport or leisure activities, when they are used in conformity to the application for which they are intended as well as for inappropriate applications that could be reasonably foreseen by the manufacturer (see Clause 4).
This document does not apply either to moving walkways as specified in EN 115 or to loading bands as specified in EN 1907.
This document does not apply to travelators manufactured prior to the date of its publication as an EN.

Sicherheit von Bandförderern für Wintersport- oder Freizeitaktivitäten

Dieses Dokument gilt für Bandförderer mit oder ohne Überdachung zur Ausübung von Wintersport- oder Freizeitaktivitäten.
Diese Vorschriften gelten für Bandförderer, die Personen (Benutzer oder Bedienungspersonal) für Winter-sportaktivitäten befördern, zusammen mit ihrer Gleitsportausrüstung und für Fußgänger mit Skischuhen oder festem Schuhwerk, die gegebenenfalls ihre Gleitsportausrüstung in der Hand halten. Im Fall einer ande-ren Nutzung müssen die Personen (Benutzer oder Bedienungspersonal) mit geeigneten Schuhen (geschlos-sene und feste Schuhe) auf den Bandförderern ausgestattet sein.

Dieses Dokument wurde auf der Grundlage eines automatischen Betriebs dieser Anlagen ohne ständige An-wesenheit von Personal in unmittelbarer Nähe des Bandförderers ausgearbeitet.
Sie enthält Anforderungen zur Unfallverhütung und dem Schutz der Bediener.
Das vorliegende Dokument behandelt alle signifikanten Gefährdungen, Gefährdungssituationen und gefahr-bringenden Ereignisse, die für Bandförderer für Wintersport- und Freizeitaktivitäten spezifisch sind und bestimmungsgemäß gebraucht werden sowie bei bestimmungswidrigem Gebrauch, wenn dieser für den Hersteller vernünftigerweise vorhersehbar ist (siehe Abschnitt 4).
Dieses Dokument gilt nicht für Fahrsteige nach EN 115 und Fahrgastförderbänder als Einstiegshilfe nach EN 1907.
Dieses Dokument gilt nicht für Bandförderer, die vor dem Datum der Veröffentlichung als EN hergestellt wurden.

Sécurité des tapis roulants pour les activités de sports d'hiver ou de loisirs

Ce document s’applique aux tapis roulants, avec ou sans galerie, pour les activités de sports d’hiver ou de loisirs.
Ces prescriptions concernent les tapis roulants assurant le transport de personnes (utilisateurs ou opérateurs) solidaires de leurs engins de glisse sur neige, de piétons chaussés de chaussures de skis ou de grosses chaussures pouvant tenir leurs engins de glisse à la main, pour les activités de sports d’hiver. Dans le cas d'une autre utilisation, les personnes (utilisateurs ou opérateurs) doivent être munies de chaussures adaptées (chaussures fermées et solides) aux tapis roulants.
NOTE Les engins de glisse incluent le matériel de ski assis pour handicapés.
Ce document est élaboré sur la base d’une exploitation automatique de ces appareils sans opérateur présent en permanence directement sur l'installation.
Il comprend des prescriptions relatives à la prévention des accidents et à la protection des opérateurs.
Le présent document traite tous les phénomènes dangereux, situations et évènements dangereux significatifs spécifiques aux tapis roulants, pour les activités de sports d'hiver ou de loisirs, lorsqu'ils sont utilisés conformément à l'usage pour lequel ils ont été prévus ainsi que dans des cas de mauvaises utilisations qui peuvent être raisonnablement prévisibles par le constructeur (voir Article 4).
Ce document ne s'applique ni aux trottoirs roulants définis dans l'EN 115 ni aux tapis d'embarquement définis dans l'EN 1907.
Ce document n'est pas applicable aux tapis roulants qui ont été fabriqués avant sa date de publication comme EN.

This document is a type C standard as stated in EN ISO 12100:2010.

The travelators covered and the range of hazardous phenomena, situations and events covered are

indicated in the scope of this document.

When the provisions of this type C standard differ from those stated in type A or B standards, the

provisions of this type C standard take precedence over the provisions of the other standards, for

travelators that have been designed and built according to the provisions of this type C standard.

1 Scope

This European Standard is applicable for travelators, with or without a tunnel, for winter sport or leisure

use.

These requirements are applicable to travelators for the transport of persons (either passengers or

operators) wearing snow-sliding devices, or pedestrians wearing ski boots or heavy boots who may be

holding their snow-sliding devices, for winter sports activities. For other uses, the persons (whether

passengers or operators) shall wear suitable (enclosed and solid) footwear for travelators.

NOTE Snow-sliding devices include seated ski equipment for handicapped people.

This document has been prepared on the basis of the automatic operation of these installations with no

staff permanently present at the actual installation.

It covers requirements relating to the prevention of accidents and the safety of operators.

This document covers all the significant hazards, hazardous situations and hazardous events specific to

travelators for winter sport or leisure activities, when they are used in conformity to the application for

which they are intended as well as for inappropriate applications that could be reasonably foreseen by

the manufacturer (see Clause 4).

This document does not apply either to moving walkways as specified in EN 115 or to loading bands as

specified in EN 1907.

This document does not apply to travelators manufactured prior to the date of its publication as an EN.
