MEI-Total Elevator Solutions acquired Code Data Plate in December 2020. Code Data Plate was originally founded in 2002 by John Rearick. Their broad product line fits well with MEI's custom engineered to order full elevator packages and elevator components.
The Safety Code for Elevators and Escalators (ASME A17.1) requires that all elevators and escalators are to be equipped with a code data plate. The specifics of this requirement are found in Section 8.9 of the 2000 and later editions of the code to be used for inspections and tests. The requirement applies to all new, modernized and existing elevators, escalators, moving walks, dumbwaiters and material lifts. The requirements for code data plates became a part of the code in 1996.
The Code Data Plate provides specific code information for the elevator inspector to reference the proper code under which the equipment was installed and/or modernized. Alterations must be specific and reference the proper requirements in Section 8.7. Plates manufactured by CodeDataPlate.com are designed to meet these code requirements.
In addition to Code Data Plates we also provide inspection tags, crosshead plates and many other products that are specific to the code. A jurisdictional database has been developed by CodeDataPlate.com to allow us to provide accurate code information to our customers in the form of required data plates, tags and signs.
