The Ski Evacuation Mat has a hard-wearing polypropylene flexible baseboard that enables the occupant to be moved easily over virtually any surface such as carpet, vinyl, concrete, bitumen and grass, making it simple and easy for rescuers to use while being comfortable for the occupant. It also has a footrest pocket for the comfort and security of the occupant.



The Ski Evacuation Mat is a lightweight, flexible evacuation aid used to move immobile people to a place of safety, including down flights of stairs in an emergency. The Ski Evacuation Mat gives protection to the occupant from bumps and bruises and is ideal for use in nursing homes or hospitals as well as many other environments such as schools, offices, hotels etc… and by the emergency services for casualty rescue.

The narrow width and flexibility of the Ski Evacuation Mat allow the occupant to be slid through standard doorways, along twisting corridors (Horizontal Evacuation) and down narrow stairs (Vertical Evacuation).

Safe load tested to 160kg with a manufacturer’s recommended maximum load of 120kg with a minimum of 2 rescuers using the Ski Evacuation Mat. You should liaise with your manual handling advisor about forming a policy on how many staff should be available to use this product.

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.
