Foreword

This British Standard has been prepared under the


direction of the Mechanical Handling Standards Policy
Committee. It supersedes clause 2 of BS 2655 : Part 8 :
1971,which has been rendered obsolescent by
amendment.
It is the eleventh Part of BS 5655, relating to lifts and
service lifts, which is being progressively published t o
supersede portions of relevant Parts of BS 2655,
the relevant obsolescent requirements beingretained for
reference purposes andto enable existing lift installations
to be maintained. The standard comprisesthe following
Parts:
Part 1. Safety rules for the construction and
installation of electric l i f t s (implementing EN 81 - 1).
(Tobe used in conjunction with PD 6500

m e n a new lift is installed in a new lift well in association
with an existing building, the installation should comply
with BS 5655 : Part 1. It should preferably comply with
the standard dimensions specifiedin BS 5655 : Part 5,

car top and be clearly visible from the landing
(b) With reduced pit depth (see also 7.3.1 in BS . . . .t
A safety sign with the legend 'Reduced pit' should be
mounted onthe wall of the lift well and be clearly visible
from the lowest landing
The installation in all other respects should comply with 5.7.
If the rated speed is increased above 2.5 m/s the above deviations
