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 mobility aid forms 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 ‘Freewalk’ this design provides more space for the operator to walk behind the chair.
All buildings above or below ground floor level where the upper or lower floors are accessible using a staircase require evacuation devices placed on each escape stairwell. It is also essential to assess the suitability of the evacuation chair chosen based on the occupants’ profile in the building. The higher the level of dependency of the occupants within the building will increase the number of evacuation chairs and the necessary training level.
We will be glad to assist you in your quest to be fully prepared as you create an environment that is safe for all.
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, thus 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.
Certified training is also available on this product: Evacuation Chair Training Course.
