Like the Standard Escape Rescue System, the Lite System is installed on the roof and the system is unobtrusive and "invisible" from the ground. Upon deployment, the system lowers the array to the ground. It then unfolds allowing response teams to enter the cabin or cabins and to be transported to higher floors, to the focus of the emergency.
The cabins travel upwards and stop opposite one or two elevated floors (depending on configuration), enabling 30 people to enter the cabin/s through specially configured exit windows simultaneously. The cabins are then lowered to the ground and evacuees exit as they re-nest. The system repeats this cycle, transporting responders up and into the building and evacuating tenants as required.
The Escape Rescue Lite System is lighter and more compact than the standard Escape Rescue System and requires less space for installation and storage.
Its smaller capacity, lighter configuration and its different configuration choices makes the Escape Rescue Lite System perfectly suitable (but not only) for hospitals as cabins can be customized for special applications, such as the evacuation of bed-ridden patients.
Both systems, the Escape Rescue Standard System and the Escape Rescue Lite System, are self-powered and remotely controlled from the ground.
