In the building transportation environment, codes and standards provide the necessary foundation for safety and innovation enabling modern cities to reach new heights.
CENTREVILLE, VA (May 13, 2019) – To celebrate Building Safety Month, the National Elevator Industry Inc. (NEII) published an infographic highlighting three key pillars of elevator and escalator safety. Mirroring the qualities of the strongest shape in nature, the triangle, NEII illustrates the impact and importance of code development, innovation and reliability for elevators and escalators. These three pillars work in tandem to create safe, efficient and resilient buildings and urban spaces.
