TECHNOLOGY OBJECTIVES


uniform safety standards


The adoption of the ASME A17.7/CSA B44.7 Performance-based safety code for elevators and escalators is one way a jurisdiction can ensure that new technology is introduced while maintaining safety for the riding public and elevator personnel.

forward thinking regulation 


As new, more sustainable technologies continue to be introduced for our growing urban centers, laws and regulations are continuously updated to keep pace with building requirements. NEII promotes consistent and fair implementation that creates a strong business environment. 

better products benefit everyone


Sophisticated innovation in the building industry means better products for both builders and the riding public. As technology improves, so does safety. As such, better products benefit all stakeholders.

machine room-less elevators


Introduced in the U.S. market in the 1990’s, Machine Room-Less (MRL) elevators are the result of a reduction in the size of components, such as permanent magnet motors, which allows the machine to be located in the elevator hoist way. By eliminating the need for a machine room, buildings can be designed with greater flexibility and more leasable space. Additional benefits include energy savings, superior performance and ride quality. MRLs are now considered the industry-standard for low and mid-rise buildings serving up to 20 floors.
