Lift Parts Testing Laboratory (LECA)

The activities of the LECA can be classified into two categories:

  • Homologation Tests. The LECA has facilities for testing lift parts and is a laboratory accredited by ENAC in accordance with UNE-EN ISO/IEC 17025 for conducting homologation tests in accordance with Standard UNE-EN 81-1/2:2001+A3:2010 Annex F.
  • R&D activities. Developing models to simulate the performance of lifts and their systems (FEM, Multibody).

R&D Activities

  • Collaboration with the Public Administration in drawing up plans to evaluate energy consumption and plans to stimulate renewal.
  • Collaboration with companies on new developments, systems modelling and parts, non-regulatory tests, etc.

UNE-EN 81-1:2001 Tests, Annex F within the scope of the LECA:
