The Elite Emergency Evacuation Chair comes with a comfortable supportive padded seat, enhanced headrest and headband, soft comfortable hand grips, upholstered armrests, and an integral 4-point harness. The handgrips are ideal for supporting a person who may mobilise with a frame, tripod or other forms of mobility aid as it allows them to transfer their weight safely onto the chair before sitting down.
Quick and easy to use the Elite Emergency Evacuation Chair is manufactured and tested to the highest standards. Another unique benefit of the chair is known as ‘Freewalk’ this design provides more space for the operator to walk behind the chair.
Since the changes to the Fire Services Act 1981 in 2003, the Fire Service is no longer obliged to provide a “complete evacuation service” for premises placing the onus upon the business owner, and changes in the ‘Disability Act’ – which now states that everyone must have the same right of evacuation in an emergency.
All buildings above or below ground floor level where the upper or lower floors are accessible with the use of a staircase require evacuation devices placed on each escape stairwell. It is also important to assess the suitability of the evacuation chair that has been chosen based on the profile of the occupants that may be in the building. The higher the level of dependency of the occupants within the building will increase both the number of evacuation chairs and level of training required.
We will be glad to assist you in your quest to be fully prepared as you create an environment that is safe for all.
