CLASS DESCRIPTION

Various types of elevators are found in both low and high-rise buildings. Among these elevators are Hydraulic and Traction (Electric) Elevators with driving machines installed in dedicated spaces referred  to as "Elevator Machine Rooms" while Machine-Room-Less (MRL) elevators have their hoisting machines installed directly inside the elevator hoistway. This class will discuss and clarify specific NFPA 72 (National Fire Alarm and Signaling Code) and NFPA 13 (Standard for the Installation of Sprinkler Systems) requirements associated with these elevators, both in buildings provided with "Building Fire Alarm Systems" and those without.  Specific NFPA 72, NFPA 13 and ASME A17.1 code terms, such as Dedicated Function FA System for Elevator Recall and Supervisory, Phase-I Emergency Recall Operation, Phase-II In-Car Emergency Operation, Designated and Alternate Recall levels and Shunt-Trip Function will be discussed and clarified.


The CBC-2019 Intervening Code Cycle – Chapter 30 was completely modified and includes significant changes related to Elevators  based on a CA State Elevator Task Group work. These changes will become effective on 7/1/2021 and they will be clarified and discussed in this class.

Applicable 2016 Editions of NFPA -72, NFPA-13 and ASME A17.1-2004 will be presented
Lates 2019 Editions of NFPA-72 and NFPA-13 will be discussed including new 2022 proposed Changes

Lates editions of IBC and IFC (2018) and the 2019 CBC and CFC will be discussed


LEARNING OBJECTIVES/OUTCOMES

  1. After attending this class, participants should be able to understand and define the different type of elevators in low and high-rise buildings such as Hydraulic, Traction, Machine-Room-Less (MRL), Passenger, Freight, Service, Destination-Dispatch, and Limited-Use-Limited-Application Elevators (LULAs)
  2. Participants should be able to identify all building and life safety codes, NFPA 13 and 72 standards and ASME A17.1 elevator code, associated with elevator emergency operation and the cross references between these codes and standards.
  3. Understand basic Fire Emergency Operation (FEO) terms such as, Phase-I emergency recall operations and Phase -II in-car emergency operation, elevator power shunt trip, Fire Emergency Operation (FEO), dedicated function fire alarm system for elevator recall and supervisory, Designated and Alternate Recall Levels, Firefighters' Flashing Helmet, and other Fire-Elevator associated terms
  4. Understand the specific requirements of NFPA 13 (sprinkler code) and NFPA 72 (fire alarm and signaling code) for interfacing elevator controls with these systems. Understand and learn how to apply specific NFPA 72 Chapters 21 and 23 and NFPA 13 Chapter 8 interface requirements to existing and new elevators both in buildings provided with "Building Fire Alarm Systems" and/or Sprinkler systems and those buildings without Fire Protection Systems.
  5. Understand specific California State elevator safety requirements such as CCR-Title 8 Elevator Safety Orders (ESO) for Group 2, 3 and 4 elevators and CBC-2016 exempt locations of sprinklers in elevator associated spaces.
