ASHRAE Escalator and Moving Walkway Speed Control2016 Title 24 CASE Topics
The Escalator and Moving Walkway Speed Control measure would require escalators and moving walkways to automatically slow down to the minimum permitted speed in accordance with ASME A17.1/CSA B44: Safety Code for Elevators and Escalators, or applicable local code, when not conveying passengers. This measure would conserve energy when these motorized walkways are not in use. The Statewide CASE Team suggests adding an exception to this proposed measure that will exclude escalators and moving walkways that are not located in airports, hotels, or transit areas.
Several stakeholder meetings and CEC staff workshops were held regarding the Nonresidential HVAC Economizer Modifications building energy efficiency topic. The list of past meetings and hearings can be found here. If you would like to receive email updates on this CASE topic, click the link below.
