Section 2.8 Equipment in Hoistways, Machinery Spaces, Machine Rooms, Control Spaces, and Control Rooms
(a) The means provided for air sampling shall comply with 18.104.22.168.4.
(b) The means provided by enclosing a fire alarm initiating device within a protective space shall comply with the following:
(1) Hoistway penetration for access panels used for installing, testing, and servicing fire alarm initiating devices shall comply with 22.214.171.124.3.
(2) Access panels shall be rated and listed for the application for which they are installed and shall have a maximum width of 400 mm (16 in.) and maximum height of 400 mm (16 in.). Access panels shall not swing into the hoistway.
(4) The space that houses the detection device(s) shall be furnished with protective guards (cages) that will prevent accidental contact by a person or object with moving equipment within the hoistway. No part of the protective guards (cages) shall be removable from outside the hoistway or from within the space between the access panel and the protective guards (cages).
(5) Protective guards (cages) shall separate the rest of the hoistway from the space containing the fire alarm initiating device. The guard (cage) shall be noncombustible openwork material that shall reject a ball 6 mm (0.25 in.) in diameter and be made from material equal to or stronger than 1.110 mm (0.0437 in.) diameter wire. The guard (cage) shall be supported so that when subjected to a force of 450 N (100 lbf) applied over an area 100 mm x 100 mm (4 in. x 4 in.) at any location, the deflection shall not reduce the clearance between the guard (cage) and any elevator equipment in the hoistway below 25 mm (1 in.).
(6) Protective guards (cages) shall be installed so that all required hoistway running clearances and beveling requirements are maintained. In no case shall the protective guards (cages) extend more than 400 mm (16 in.) inside the hoistway.
(7) Prior to installation of fire alarm initiating devices or other fire detection systems in hoistways, layout drawings indicating acceptable installation locations for access panels and protective guards (cages) shall be coordinated with the elevator installer.
(a) This means shall be independent of the elevator control and shall not be self-resetting.
Enclosed moving, rotating, and/or hanging machinery or equipment and stationary decorative lighting, stationary signage, and/or other stationary special effects devices that are securely attached to the car, counterweight, and/or hoistway shall be permitted, provided that the elevator, including the equipment and devices, conforms to Sections 2.4 and 2.5 and 2.8.1, 126.96.36.199.1, 2.15.7, 188.8.131.52, and 184.108.40.206. Any unenclosed moving, rotating, or hanging machinery or equipment attached to the exterior of the car or counterweight, interior of the hoistway, or any other elevator equipment in the hoistway is prohibited unless it is used in conjunction with the designed use of the elevator.
