European foreword

This document (prEN 81-71:2020) has been prepared by Technical Committee CEN/TC 10 “Lifts,

escalators and moving walks”, the secretariat of which is held by AFNOR.
This document is currently submitted to the CEN Enquiry.

This document has been prepared under a mandate given to CEN by the European Commission and

the European Free Trade Association, and supports essential requirements of EU Directive(s).

For relationship with EU Directive(s), see informative Annex ZA, which is an integral part of this

document.
This document will supersede EN 81-71:2018+A1:2019.

In comparison with the previous edition, the following significant changes have been made:

— The removal of reference to Category 0;
— All externally referenced standards have now been dated;
— Editorial corrections to assist in understanding;

— A new Annex ZA has been developed in order to be aligned with the requirements of the EU

Commission Standardization Request “M/549 C(2016) 5884 final”.
No technical changes have been made during this revision.

The content of this document provides the enhanced design rules, examinations and tests for lifts

where protection is needed against vandalism.

This document is intended to be used in conjunction with the EN 81-20:2020, which gives the basic

requirements for passenger and goods passenger lifts.

This document is part of the EN 81 series of standards. The structure of the EN 81 series is described

in CEN/TR 81-10:2008.

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

The lifts concerned and the extent to which hazards, hazardous situations or hazardous events are

covered are indicated in the Scope of this document.

When requirements of this type-C standard are different from those which are stated in type-A or

type-B standards, the requirements of this type-C standard take precedence over the requirements

of the other standards for machines that have been designed and built according to the requirements

of this type-C standard.

This document provides requirements for the design of lifts where it is considered that additional

measures are required in order to protect against the risk of vandalism. Every lift is subject to some

amount of careless and rough use. Additional protective measures against deliberate acts that may

result in equipment damage or injury to persons for lifts are referred to in this document as Category

1 or Category 2.
The following assumptions were made whilst writing this document:
— The potential for vandalism of lifts depends on the following factors:
— the degree of accessibility to the lift installation;
— the surrounding area;
— observation of the lift by others in the vicinity;
— the extent of building security and surveillance of the lift;
— period of access to the building, including the lift (24 h);
— vulnerability of lift.

— The forces exerted on the lift and its equipment will be as a result of manual effort or by item(s)

such as those listed in Annex E.

the leading edge, and the car door(s), or its attachments at the leading edge, shall not exceed 35 mm.

This distance shall be maintained back from the leading edge over a length of not less than 75 mm

and returned at an angle not exceeding 45° to the rear of the door panel. This return angle may be

omitted over a length not exceeding 200 mm at the top and/or bottom of the door panel to allow the

landing door with an emergency unlocking key as stated in EN 81-20:2020, 5.3.9.3.1 or by using an

item as described in Annex E, unless this system has been de-activated.

5.4.2.2 A device to manually activate and de-activate the system shall be in at least one of the

following locations:

5.4.2.3 After manual de-activation, the system shall be automatically re-activated after a period

of between 30 min and 60 min, to prevent the doors being left without the security system operative.

However, when the lift is placed on inspection control, or a stopping device to EN 81-20:2020,

5.12.1.11 is operated, this time sequence shall stop. Once the lift is returned to normal operation, the

time sequence shall be re-initiated. Each manual re-activation shall reduce any remaining time delay

to a value between 30 s and 60 s.
