New elevator standard

Shanghai released a safety technical standard for elevators in residential buildings that recently took effect, from equipment selecting to maintenance, authorities said yesterday.

According to the standard, the installation primarily takes three factors into consideration: the structure of existing buildings, safe operations and passenger comfort, especially the elderly.

According to the city’s 7th population census, 23.4 percent of permanent residents are age 60 and above, making the needs of the elderly a priority for elevator installations, the Shanghai Administration for Market Regulation said.
