Standards and Regulation

ASTM International, one of the world’s largest international standards organizations, has developed and published the “Standard Specifications for Multi-story Building External Evacuation Platform Systems” E 2513-07. This standard covers the specifications, safety requirements, performance, design, practices, marking instructions and test methods for Multi-story Building External Evacuation Platform Rescue Systems (PRS) for emergency escape of persons who cannot use normal means of egress to a safe area and for transport of emergency responders vertically.

 NFPA has recognized and approved platform rescue systems as an additional (“supplemental”) mode of evacuation from multi-story buildings and has included such recognition in the Life Safety Code 101, defining them as an “enclosed platform or set of enclosed platforms, moving vertically along guides or other means on the exterior of a building or structure, intended for the evacuation of multiple occupants from an upper level or levels to the ground or other safe location that has the capability of transporting emergency responders to upper levels of a building.” Such recognition is conditional on meeting ASTM E-2513-07 or equivalent standard.

SII – The Standards Institution of Israel tested and approved the system in line with the requirements of ASTM Standard, E 2513-07.

 

The Escape Rescue System meets the requirements of ASTM 2513-07 and NFPA 101 and it is approved by the Standards Institution of Israel

The Escape Rescue System – a Revolution in Rapid & Safe Evacuation

An advanced multi-platform rescue system installed unobtrusively on the roof-top, requiring almost no alteration to the building, Suitable for both existing and new structures.

The only platform solution to comply with the American Society for Testing and Materials - ASTM Standard E 2513 for Multi-Story Building External Evacuation Platform Rescue Systems.

NFPA Building Construction and Safety Code (NFPA 5000) and the Life Safety Code (NFPA 101) include adoptable annexes that specify the conditions for installation of Platform Rescue Systems (Such as the Escape Rescue System)

  • Saves lives!
