Elevators as safe and efficient high-tech systems
There are between 700,000 and 800,000 elevators in operation in the United States, allowing comfortable, convenient, and rapid passenger transport in buildings, airports, and railway stations. Advancements in technology, architecture and engineering place an ever-increasing demand on elevators to travel higher, faster, quieter, and more efficiently than ever before.
Compliance to all relevant quality standards during the phases of elevator design, manufacture, installation, and operation is vital to ensure safety, reduce costly defects, malfunctions, or failures, and minimize liability risk.
TÜV SÜD America Inc. will help implement your new products into the market faster and safer.
“Elevators are the only mass transportation system, which can be operated without age restrictions or license needs. Safety is the utmost prerequisite for our children, seniors, and every user” stated Mr. Dirk Schroeter, Product Manager TÜV SÜD America Industry Service. He also serves as a member of the ASME A17 Elevator New Technology Committee.
