safety features
EVERY THYSSENKRUPP ELEVATOR PRODUCT IS EQUIPPED WITH A NUMBER OF DEVICES FOR THE PROTECTION AND CONVENIENCE OF PASSENGERS. To ensure safety, personnel should become familiar with the function of the keyswitch and push-button operations on the elevators. ALL KEY OPERATION SHOULD BE USED BY AUTHORIZED PERSONNEL ONLY. Consult your local ThyssenKrupp Elevator representative for state or local codes that vary from the national code. Not all the features listed below will be installed on your elevator.

H MICROLIGHT Electronic door edges detect when the elevator doorways are blocked, keeping them open until the blockage is removed. If a beam is interrupted, the doors will not close or will automatically reopen if already closing. This door protection system replaces the safety edge and photo eye. H VENT SLOTS All elevators are equipped with vent slots to ensure adequate air flow. H EMERGENCY EXITS All elevators have an emergency exit on either the top of the car, the side of the car, or both. These exits should be locked at all times and used only by emergency personnel. H H O I S T W AY D O O R K E Y W AY (WHERE ALLOWED BY CODE) Allows access to the hoistway if the elevator is not at the landing. The hoistway should be accessed only by elevator or emergency

KNOW AND UNDERSTAND HOW YOUR INVESTMENT WITH THYSSENKRUPP ELEVATOR CAN SERVE AND PROTECT YOU AND YOUR TENANTS IN THE EVENT OF AN EMERGENCY. POWER FAILURE. S TA L L E D E L E VAT O R . In the event of the loss of normal power, limited elevator service is continued through an automatic transfer to our Emergency Power operation. Then, when normal power is restored, the elevators will automatically transfer back to normal operation. If there is not a standby power supply, the elevators will stop in progress and remain at rest until normal power is restored. H EMERGENCY POWER OPERATION Establish and maintain communication with the passengers inside the elevator by using the elevator's telephone or intercom, or simply by calling through the An Emergency Power lowering system provides automatic or manual return of an elevator to a predetermined landing during a blackout or single-phase electrical condition. ThyssenKrupp Elevator offers options for emergency power operation. If there is a standby power supply, the elevators will automatically return to the lowest landing and the doors will open, allowing the passengers to exit. The doors will then close and the elevator will shut down. The elevators will remain at that landing until a car is manually selected. H Some applications allow the elevators to lower to a pre-selected landing, cycle the doors, then shut down. If the designated landing is above the elevator at the time normal power is lost, the car will proceed to the next lowest landing, cycle the doors and shut down. Personnel should be notified of which landing the elevators will return to in the event of power failure. H Find out whether the regular elevator lighting or the emergency light is operating. This will help determine the degree of power failure. BATTERY LOWERING H Ask the passengers not to smoke. H Ask the passengers to stand clear of the doors. Find out how many people are in the elevator. H Contact your local ThyssenKrupp Elevator office and inform them of the situation. H Find out if anyone is injured or ill. If so, arrange for medical assistance. doors. Reassure the passengers that steps are being taken to remove them from the elevator. In the unlikely event that an elevator becomes stalled with passengers aboard, do not attempt a rescue yourself. While all ThyssenKrupp elevators have an emergency exit, this exit should be locked at all times and used only during an emergency by trained personnel. Please follow these instructions carefully:

As an option on our hydraulic elevators, we offer a Battery Lowering Unit, which provides supplemental power for the elevator when the building loses power. The unit returns the elevator to the designated landing and opens the doors, allowing passengers to exit safely.

FIRE SERVICE. In the event of a fire, never use the elevators to evacuate the building; use the stairways to get to a safe place. Under no circumstances should anyone except trained firefighters be allowed to use the elevators after a fire has been reported.

Fire Service is initiated automatically by the buildings smoke detectors or by activating the Fire Service keyswitch located in the hall.

When this service is initiated, all hall and car calls are cancelled, the elevators return to a designated floor, the doors open and remain open. Trained firefighters then may activate the Fire Service keyswitch in the elevator and gain control of the car. Combination Hall Station / Fire Service Keyswitch (2004 CODE)

To return to normal operation, return the elevator to the assigned Fire Service floor, hold constant pressure on the door open push-button and turn the Fire Service keyswitch in the car station to the Off position. Next, place the hall Fire Service keyswitch in the Bypass or Reset position. Pause momentarily, then turn the keyswitch to the Off position. Only authorized personnel should be permitted to reset Fire Service, after being certain there is no fire in the building, and the smoke/heat detectors have been reset.

FIRE SERVICE JEWEL Illuminates when Fire Service operation is activated, indicating the elevator is returning to the designated landing.
