CE Certification for False Car


Wurtec announced that it has received CE certification for its False Car product, which is a working platform designed for installing and dismantling lift components inside an elevator shaft.

The False Car was evaluated against the Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC and EN 1808 1999 and EN 81-1 standards (used as a reference) by the Liftinstituut B.V. in The Netherlands, and at the end of the evaluation it was determined the False Car met the appropriate requirements for CE certification. After being used for over twenty years in the U.S. market for rail and other component installation, Wurtec saw increased interest in the False Car internationally and felt it was critical to achieve CE certification for customers in Europe and other regions that demanded it. With this recent certification, Wurtec has shown its commitment to providing its customers with the safest, most reliable installation equipment, as well as the certifications and approvals to support it. The False Car has been used on high-profile projects such as the Burj Khalifia in Dubai, the Petronas Towers in Malaysia, the Freedom Towers in the U.S.A. The system has proven to be a consistently cost-effective solution for quick, efficient, and safe installation of elevator shaft equipment.
