According to DIN EN 115-1:2008+A1:2010 section 7.3.1, escalators and moving walkways must undergo a (yearly) inspection by a qualified person, e.g. experts from TÜV or DEKRA, etc., in regular intervals and after major alterations. If significant deficiencies are detected during this inspection, the tester can shut down the installation or allow the continued operation only under certain conditions.
The consequences are limited availability, additional costs, and possibly even official restrictions and/or requirements. To make sure that you as operator don’t get into such a situation, we prepare your installation and the required documents according to the test checklists, thus safeguarding a defect-free approval.
According to DIN EN 115-:2008+A1:2010 section 7.3.3, a re-approval is also necessary upon major alterations, e.g. after replacing a control unit. On site, our service foreman will explain the performed updates to the tester before the inspection and discuss the required risk assessments that Geyssel can carry out for you.
A 1:1 exchange of parts of equal kind and quality is not classified as major alteration.
