5°5° test = A load testing requirement taken from DIN 58950 (safety requirements and inspections for stands and truss lifts of stands)
DGUV-17This statutory German accident prevention regulation applies to employers and insured persons in Germany, as well as employers and employees from foreign enterprises who perform work in Germany. BGVc1 (currently called DGUV 17) prescribes certain measures referring to applicable German standards, e.g. DIN 56950. This standard fills the gap by not only covering staging and machinery, addressed in EU Machinery Directive (2006/42/EC), but also machinery that this directive does not cover. The directive is implemented in Germany by the 9th Ordinance of the German Product Safety Act (Machinery Ordinance - 9th ProdSV). The directive excludes what it expresses as „machinery intended to move performers during artistic performances“. However, such machinery is not only used to „move performers during artistic performances“ but also to move or hold loads over persons, move or hold persons themselves not only during „artistic performances“ but also during stage construction, setting up scenary and rehearsals.
CECE = Self-certified conformity declaration. In this case, the lifts fulfil the demands of European Machine directive 2006/42/EC.
TUV NORD CERTIFIEDTÜV baumuster approval assures that all Mobiltechlifts lifts meet the requirements for structures, i.e. when the load is lifted and secured at trim height, the lifting equipment then becomes a structure and different regulations apply to the lifting operation.
