The Versa Emergency Evacuation Chair instantly deploys into a 4-wheel evacuation chair. This feature removes the risks associated with operating a ram supported guide wheel. Most importantly it provides an easy transfer between a wheelchair users chair and the evacuation chair because of the integral supportive seat, safety brakes on the rear wheels and a sturdy high capacity frame for sustained use.
Quick and easy to use the Versa Emergency Evacuation Chair is manufactured and tested to the highest standards. Another unique benefit of the Versa Emergency Evacuation Chair is known as ‘Freewalk’ this design provides more space for the operator to walk behind the chair. Legislation dictates that the person having control over the building must provide a safe means of evacuation for any person who may be (or become) unable to use an exit route in the event of a fire or an emergency.
- Lower Staff Requirement
- Easy to use
- The Versa, Emergency Evac Chair, uses a single operator “Load and Go” technology

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.
