How an evac chiar can be used for?
If you’re in the market to buy an Evac Chair, the bear these tips in. Firstly, make certain it’s light, sturdy and easy to operate. Unnecessary braking systems, overheavy structure and numerous parts lists does not an emergency tool make. Particularly one that need to be counted on at a moment’s notice. Bulk and complication are to be avoided.
Face facts, evacuation gear may well need to be transported to where it’s required most. This could be up a few flights of stairs, down a narrow hallway to where someone’s sleeping, or possibly to a nearby fire exit with a staircase, so it’s tough to position the equipment exactly where it will be necessary. Therefore, be sure it’s light enough to be carried elsewhere. Anything which is around 10 Kg is feasible to work with, but something that is often 25Kg is really going to test the strength of even the strongest guys you have on your staff, and that’s not including the patient on it either.
An extra advantage here is that ‘lightweight’ translates seamlessly into ‘speed’ for getting it to where it’s wanted. Clearing an individual down the stair of a fire escape necessitates a controlled descent that requires speed to match traffic flow. “Polymatic Traction” is the new-fangled self-regulating built in speed manager of our Evac Chair, and it allows the operative to speed up, slow down or halt on the stairs with effortless reassurance and ease to the person sitting in it. Since its introduction in 1982, the Evac Chair has gone through 5 key design amendments with only negligible weight increases and very little added complication for what is thought of as a major evolutionary improvement.
The thin profile, design, and very light build of the Evac Chair means that its use as an evacuation chair does not hamper the ascent or descent of the first people on the scene of an emergency, who are normally paramedics or fire marshals. The Evac Chair has been concocted to manoeuvre easily and reliably using a patented continuous revolving V belt that guarantees safety and lets the user have total command of the chair’s descent speed down the stairs with comparative ease, irrespective of the passenger’s shape or size.
The narrow profile, plan and very light build of the Evac Chair means that its use as an evacuation chair does not interfere with operations occurring in potentially shared the very narrow stairwells which frequently appear in older buildings all over the UK as well.
