Mr. Phillip Hampton, Chief Engineer – Director of Codes and Standards at ThyssenKrupp Elevator Americas: "“The ThyssenKrupp TWIN elevator was originally certified in compliance with the European Lifts Directive. The electronic safety system is certified according to the worldwide standard IEC 61508. The North American market requires the elevator to comply with the ASME A17.1/CSA B44 code. Due to its innovative characteristics, the TWIN complies with around 85 percent of this code. For deviations, North America introduced the ASME A17.7/CSA B44.7 Performance-Based Code."
"We have worked with Liftinstituut a number of times and have always been pleased with the organization’s high level of expertise and customer-oriented approach. Based on our experience and the ANSI accreditation for ASME A17.7/CSA B44.7, we were confident Liftinstituut was the right choice for this prestigious project as well.”
Certificate of Conformance
“Part of the ASME A17.7/CSA B44.7 process is to inspect a full working installation. Before ThyssenKrupp Elevator can install and sell a TWIN, the local authorities in North America require an ASME A17.7/CSA B44.7 certifi cate. Based on the positive outcome of a stringent evaluation, Liftinstituut has issued a Certificate of Conformance for Pilot, that enables our company to proceed. After the first TWIN has been installed in North America and Liftinstituut inspects the installation, we expect Liftinstituut to finalize the ASME A17.7/CSA B44.7 evaluation and issue a final Certificate of Conformance."
"We have again been very happy with the cooperation of Liftinstituut so far. ThyssenKrupp Elevator will certainly not hesitate to contact Liftinstituut again for AECO certification of any future new products.”
