In this issue
3/2013 - May/June
It’s time for important topics, it’s time for safety. This was also requested by our readers, that is why, after a few months, we are back with this topic. In January we published the “Proposal for amendment of article 19 of the Italian Presidential Decree 162” signed by the most important associations of the lift sector. For this issue, we interviewed three association’s presidents and focus in detail on topics relevant to safety.
We update you on the Argentinean market, which is made of small and medium enterprises with great potentialities, mainly in the exportation sector to Latin America.
Then, some considerations on the past (China) and future (Russia, Bulgaria etc.) exhibition meetings. We also deal with Turkey with an article on Turkish market, standards and regulations.
Dario Trabucco is once again the guest of our Architecture section with an article on the architectural logics in the “Ultratall vertical transportation”.
Special attention deserves the article written by Giuseppe Iotti and Fabio Liberali about “Lifts and EU environmental standards: the state of the art”, reporting about the influence of the Ecodesign European Directive on the sector.
Derek Smith discusses about the path for standard definition in the case of BSI, EN and ISO (the first part was published in Elevatori No. 2-2013).
A less technical but equally interesting reading is the section focused on the ANICA interviews: discussions about the member profiles and their enterprise businesses.
Have a great read!
