Door Lock Monitoring – Code Changes for Minnesota Customers

There has been a change to the elevator code adopted September 30, 2020 that helps ensure rider safety.  The State of Minnesota Department of Labor and Industry indicated that effective immediately it will begin enforcing ASME A17.3-2015-3.10.12. MEI wants to educate our customers so they understand the impact to their elevators specifically and work together on a plan to get their equipment up to code.

How does this improve rider safety?

This safety feature prevents the elevator from moving when the elevator hoistway or cab doors do not close properly.  The intent of the new code is to enhance rider safety.
