1.1This specification covers the specifications, safety requirements, performance, design, practices, marking instructions and test methods for Multi-Story Building External Evacuation Platform Rescue Systems (PRS) for emergency escape of persons who cannot use the normal means of egress to a safe area and for transport of emergency responders vertically.

1.2This specification is applicable only to PRSs:

1.2.1Permanently installed;

1.2.2Designed for multi-cycle and repetitive use; and

1.2.3Where descent is controlled to limit speed before arrival at a floor or landing zone.

1.3This specification does not cover:

1.3.1Platform devices that are used primarily for purposes other than emergency evacuation or access, or both;

1.3.2Helicopters or other flying platforms;

1.3.3Any other devices covered under/within ASME A17.1;

1.3.4A PRS utilizing platform(s) that can be transported to or between buildings during operations; and

1.3.5A PRS using driving methods other than positive drive as drum and ropes.

1.4Operation of a PRS is limited to trained and authorized operators.

1.5The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.

1.5.1Exception—In 5.2.1 and 5.2.2, inch-pound units are provided in parentheses after the SI units for information only.
