Escape Ladder vs. the Escape Rescue System

Escape Ladders refers to portable devices that can be deployed from an opening on a house or low building and use it as a ladder to descend to the ground.  

This escape and evacuation method is effective and suitable in low-rise private houses or
residential buildings. It requires the physical ability to climb down, it allows for the evacuation
of one person at a time and it cannot be used if the pathway is compromised by flames or smoke.

The Escape Rescue System provides an effective and extremely quick evacuation for all
the tenants of the building, even in the event of a lower floor being compromised by fire or smoke.
