Our Evac chairs offer a universal evacuation solution for smooth stairway descent during an emergency. This single user operation ensures no heavy lifting or manual handling is needed during emergency evacuation procedures.
An escape chair or evacuation chair is a device manufactured for the smooth descent of stairways in the event of an emergency. The Evac Chair was invented in the United States in 1982. The single-user operation device does not require heavy lifting to evacuate a person.
The original Escape-Chair, with various models for various situations, addresses the need for an evacuation solution in case there is an emergency, and egress out of a structure or vessel becomes imperative.
Enhanced models can have chairs that require two-person operation; however, these are more commonly used in ambulances. Lifting handles are used for descent and ascent of stairs. Caterpillar tracks are also used on the stairs.
