Evacuation Chair vs. the Escape Rescue System

Evacuation Chairs were developed to allow people in wheel chairs to descend stairs and they are user friendly and effective.

Such as in other evacuation solutions, it provides an excellent solution for a single person. As each disable person will use
one chair and will require an assistant to negotiate the stairs, additional people with mobility difficulties will each
need a chair and an assisting person, making this an improbable systemic solution in most cases.


The Escape Rescue System is the only solution that allows for people in wheel chairs to evacuate on their own, without
needing to change to a special chair. The system’s capacity will allow for the evacuation of many people in wheel chairs
per evacuation cycle.
