Firefighting

Firefighting

Firefighting is a type of elevator which allows firefighters to use it in order to rescue people who may be trapped on upper floors during an event of fire in a building. Trap doors and ladders for rescue operations are provided for high floor-to-floor distances; electrical components in the shaft and on the car, are protected against splashing water; and elevator operation is according to the requirements of EN81-72 when using the specified control devices for firemen.

Firefighting elevator is typically a normal passenger or service/freight elevator even if it has the additional protection, controls and signalization to enable it to be used under the direct control of the firefighter.
