Fire Protection– The Need for Evacuation and Access

Protecting from the risk of fire has required and involved a multi-layer approach, covering prevention, early detection, retardation of spread, early extinguishing, rescue and egress, and fire-fighting. Fire retardant construction materials, smoke detectors and fire sprinklers, fire doors/compartmentalization, staircases and over-pressurizing systems are some of the many devices and solutions demanded by regulatory agencies and authorities.

Recent history has shown that human-created events and extreme acts of nature can lead to tremendous distress within a building, threatening ever-larger numbers of people, as they overcome the various preventing and mitigating barriers. Hence, affording assurance of fast and robust tenant evacuation as well as responder access remains a high and critical priority.

In recent years we witness additional high-rise building large-scale disasters such as:

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)
