Florida Elevator Inspector Code Chart

This chart was developed from data supplied from records from the State of Florida.  We have designed this chart with additional data added to the A17 Code information to aid Florida elevator inspectors.  The purpose of this chart is that by using the Florida State serial number, you can determine the codes relevant at the time of original installation of the elevator system.  This elevator code chart is to be used with caution in either Broward or Dade Counties, as both of these jurisdictions have used serial numbering different from the State's system.  FL s. 399.03(7)  Each elevator shall comply with the edition of the Florida Building Code or Elevator Safety Code that was in effect at the time of receipt of application for the construction permit for the elevator. If the elevator is altered or "modernized", the elevator code effective at that time of alteration would be effective.  According to currently adopted Florida elevator code, these changes must be dated and noted by data plates posted in the elevator machine room or elevator machine space so that the relevant applicable elevator code can be verified.  For these reasons it is critical that elevator inspectors have a complete library of code references for proper research.

As an example:  use of ASME A17.1-2004  Elevator Safety Code on an elevator still original from 1972 may be misleading.  The Elevator CSI library of A17.1 Elevator Safety Codes dates back to 1925 including all of the most recent elevator safety codes.  Our collection of the National Electric Code (NEC®) dates back to 1947 including most of the NEC® Handbooks for reference.

Enhanced Table of Contents for

ASME A17.1 SAFETY CODE FOR ELEVATORS AND ESCALATORS

With the release of each ASME A17.1 Safety Code for Elevators and Escalators a standard Table of Contents is included.  Below is a Table of Contents that facilitates additional navigation through the A17.1 Elevator Safety Code. This enhanced Table of Contents drills down into the A17.1 Elevator Safety Code and quickly takes anyone to the third level of informational topics in the A17.1 Safety Code for Elevators and Escalators. While the Table of Contents that is included in the A17.1 Elevator Safety Code takes the user to general topics of information, this enhanced Table of Contents takes the user to specific topics listed under each of the general topics in the code.

By downloading or use of the documents included below, agreement to the terms and conditions for use are accepted by the user.

ESCALATOR STEP/SKIRT PERFORMANCE INDEX CHART

This is a chart that we put together to facilitate understanding the Step/Skirt performance Index requirements for the various editions of the A17.1 Code.  Since the A17.1d-2000 edition of the A17.1 code, this has been a periodic test requirement for both existing and new escalators.

Once an Authority Having Jurisdiction (AHJ) adopts the A17.1d-2000, or newer edition of the code, all escalators under that jurisdictional authority will be required to be tested unless the AHJ has specifically excluded this section of the code from adoption.  Based on the history behind the Step/Skirt Performance Index development, it is highly unlikely that many AHJs will exclude the escalators in that jurisdiction from this test requirement.

While we view this as a tool to assist the user, it is not intended to replace any of the specific code requirements.  This chart has been assembled as a quick reference tool and is not intended to replace the specific edition of the A17.1 code that is being enforced in any jurisdiction.  While we have put this together to the best of our ability, it does not supersede the necessity to determine the specific code requirement based on the edition of the code that is adopted in a specific jurisdiction.

We invite all Elevator Inspectors, Elevator Consultants, Elevator Enforcement Authorities and anyone else that have a need to participate in Step/Skirt Performance Index testing, as required by the A17.1d-2000 and later editions of the SAFETY CODE FOR ELEVATORS AND ESCALATORS, to please feel free to print and use this reference chart in the performance of their work.  Hopefully it will prove as useful to you as it has for us.

CONVERSION FACTOR CHART

This is a chart that we put together to facilitate the calculations that may be necessary for Elevator Inspectors, Elevator Consultants, Elevator Enforcement Authorities and anyone else that utilizes the ASME A17.1-2000 SAFETY CODE FOR ELEVATORS AND ESCALATORS or later editions of this code.

While we view this as a tool to assist the user, it is not intended to replace any of the specific code requirements. For many years the ASME A17.1 SAFETY CODE FOR ELEVATORS AND ESCALATORS contained both imperial (customary) and metric (SI) units. Previously, the committee policy was to encourage steps toward metrication of the Code. With the efforts towards harmonization of this code, the emphasis has been toward hard metric (SI) units wherever practical along with the acceptable equivalent imperial units being shown in parenthesis. The 2000 edition of the ASME A17.1 SAFETY CODE FOR ELEVATORS AND ESCALATORS was the result of a joint effort between the ASME A17 Elevator and Escalator Committee and the CSA B44 Technical Committee to harmonize requirements between the ASME A17.1 Safety Code for Elevators and Escalators and the CSA B44 Safety Code for Elevators.

With the release of the 2000 edition of the A17.1 SAFETY CODE FOR ELEVATORS AND ESCALATORS the switch was made to the use of hard metric (SI) units wherever practical. There are some tables related to speed and load that use the hard metric and the hard imperial units in common practice, even though they are not exactly equivalent. Care should be used to insure the correct code requirements are identified and enforced as these table values have been derived from SECTION 8.2, DESIGN DATA AND FORMULAS of the A17.1 code, which means that the values are therefore not equivalent.

We invite all Elevator Inspectors, Elevator Consultants, Elevator Enforcement Authorities and anyone else that have a need to utilize the ASME A17.1 SAFETY CODE FOR ELEVATORS AND ESCALATORS to please feel free to print and use this Conversion Factor Chart in the performance of their work. Hopefully it will prove as useful to you as it has for us.


MAXIMUM RELIEF VALVE SETTING CHART FOR HYDRAULIC ELEVATORS

This is a chart we developed for the Maximum Relief Valve Setting for Hydraulic Elevators. This is a simple reference chart to facilitate inspection and testing procedures.  While we view this as a tool to assist the user, this chart is not intended to be a substitute for the actual calculation of what the maximum relief valve setting can be based on the A17.1 Safety Code for Elevators and Escalators.

We invite all Elevator Inspectors, Elevator Consultants, Elevator Enforcement Authorities and anyone else to please feel free to print and use this MAXIMUM RELIEF VALVE SETTING CHART in the performance of their work. Hopefully it will prove as useful to you as it has for us.

ELECTRICAL FUSE CHART

This is a chart we developed for the proper fuse sizing for elevator motors. This is a simple reference chart to facilitate inspection and testing procedures.  While we view this as a tool to assist the user, this chart is not intended to be a substitute for the actual calculation as required by the most recent Electrical Code.

We invite all Elevator Inspectors, Elevator Consultants, Elevator Enforcement Authorities and anyone else to please feel free to print and use this ELECTRICAL FUSE CHART in the performance of their work. Hopefully it will prove as useful to you as it has for us.
