AS 1735.12-1999  Lifts, escalators and moving walks - Facilities for persons with disabilities

AS 1735.12 sets out requirements for passenger lifts which are specifically designed to assist persons with disabilities.

It is important to note that the BCA and Premises Standards references only specific parts of AS 1735.12 relating to passenger lift car sizes, doors, passenger protection systems, control buttons, handrails, audible and visual information, and emergency communication.

Other non-referenced requirements of AS 1735.12 (such as lift car levelling to the lift lobby floor level and lift door dwell times) can be adopted as best-practice recommendations.
