Delaware elevator and escalator codes

Delaware DE state elevator appears to revolve around Title 16, Chapter 87 and it appears that the elevator safety and permitting requirements are dictated by counties and municipalities. Note: Just because we couldn't find any legislation, doesn't guarantee there is none. Always check with your local authorities before proceeding. There are several other good resources available to you should you own/operate an elevator in Delaware. The American Society of Engineers has created standards addressing elevator operation, testing, and maintenance: ASME A17.3 and ASME A17.1. These standards are excellent resources for commercial elevator owners, please see our elevator resource section for additional information regarding elevator safety.
