All About Safety for Home Elevators in California & Nevada
Everything ACME provides is, first and foremost, safe.
Elevators installed in homes fall under a set of safety regulations that govern how home elevators are manufactured AND installed. That code is the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) Safety Code for Elevators and Escalators, Private Residence Elevators A 17.1
Our founder, Terry Pope, sits on the A17.1 Code Committee, as he has for years, and continues to actively contribute to any and all considerations for code changes with a focus on rider safety.
Terry is also a founding member of the A18 Code, the Safety Standard for Platform Lifts and Stairway Chairlifts.
All of our lifts meet code requirements, ensuring that they have safety devices in place to protect elevator passengers.
Additionally, we insist on making sure the elevator is installed according to code requirements, such as arresting safeties and having a working phone line. There are also extras that we insist on doing, like providing a safer gate and fire resistant wiring.
This is extremely important as the State of California does not inspect lifts installed in homes.
That State of Nevada inspects home elevators and ACME was the first company to have an elevator inspected by the state.
Your safety and the safety of your family, friends and guests is the most important thing to ACME Home Elevator.
