However, this standard may usefully be used as a basis. 1.3 This standard deals with the significant hazards, hazardous situations and events relevant to firefighters lifts (as listed in clause 4) when they are used as intended and under the conditions as foreseen by the installer. 1.4 This document is applicable to new firefighters lifts in new buildings which are installed after the date of publication of this document by CEN. 1.5 This standard gives the additional or deviating requirements to EN 81-1 and 2 and prEN 81-5, 6 and 7 which shall be available for lifts which may be used for firefighting and evacuation purposes under firefighters control. In all other respects such lifts are designed in accordance with EN 81-1 and 2 and prEN 81-5, 6 and 7 where applicable. 1.6 This standard does not consider the use of lifts with partially enclosed wells for use as firefighters lifts. 1.7 This standard ceases to apply if the fire eventually breaks into a fire protected lobby (see annex A, Figure A.2).
