The Demand

Following 9/11 and other fatal events, and given the very rapid growth of the high-rise urban landscape, there is a growing demand and requirement for innovative and robust solutions for emergency evacuation and access. The need has been recognized and addressed by numerous international and local bodies, such as NIST, ASTM International, NFPA, TUV, ISO, The Standards Institution of Israel (SII), the State of Maharashtra (India) and the Russian fire authorities.

Analyses and reports regarding such extreme events underline the complexity of the problem and have helped define the goals and requirements for and of solutions. Escape Rescue Systems has worked to address these extreme and particular demands that attend extreme building emergency situations, leading to a unique and most-effective product. 

Perhaps most indicative of this trend is the following statement by the International Standards Organization (ISO):

“Should we design buildings to withstand a severe impact which may be of very low probability of occurring? Probably not. However, should we design routes and methods of getting people out of buildings which have experienced a catastrophic event? Of course we should”
