Evacuation Chair, Fire and Emergency Evacuation Chair Solutions


Should an emergency evacuation take place due to fire or natural disaster passenger lifts should not be used. We offer a very wide range of evacuation chairs to enable swift evacuation from multi-story buildings for the injured, mobility impaired persons and wheelchair users.

Manual Evacuation Chairs take the weight of the person being evacuated allowing for smooth, safe and controlled stairway descent during an emergency.

As a Class 1 Medical Device, an Evac+Chair should be regularly serviced and maintained to ensure its safe operation. This requirement is included within the PUWER (Provision of Use of Work Equipment) Regulation. To help clients meet this legal requirement, we offer an annual service contract. The Evac+Chair is classified within the EU as a ‘medical device’ and therefore conforms to the provisions of the Medical Devices Directive, 93/42/EEC (2002) which requires all such devices to carry the CE mark.

Complementing our range of Evac Chairs we offer Powered Mobility Stairclimbers (Battery Operated) Models include;
C-Max U1 weight capacity 140kg and 160kg with integral fixed seat
C-Max U2 Foldable weight capacity160kg, with integral fixed seat
S-Max 135kg and 160kg (with various seating options)
S-Max Sella weight capacity 135kg possibly the smallest Stairclimber on the market to-date. Fixed and various seat options

Evacuation Chairs

There is a common misunderstanding that it is the responsibility of the emergency services to ensure the safe evacuation of persons from a building, this is simply not the case.
It is a legal requirement for employers and service providers to ensure the safe evacuation of everyone, including mobility impaired persons, in the event of an emergency.
Today's law stipulates that it is no longer the duty of the Fire Service to make sure the workplace is safe, the duty now lies with 'the responsible person'.
The responsibility is clearly with the building management or service providers to ensure there are suitable procedures in place to evacuate everyone including disabled people without relying on the fire service.
The responsible person must nominate a sufficient number of competent persons to implement procedures in so far as they relate to the evacuation of relevant persons from the premises.
Building managers should not be contemplating refusing entry to disabled people but should have plans in place that ensure the safe evacuation of all building users whether or not the fire service is available.
There is no document which states that disabled people should be left in a building to wait for the fire service during a fire. In fact, current legislative documents and standards state that it is the responsibility of building management to ensure their safe escape by introducing suitable escape plans.
Where equipment is provided to assist in the evacuation of disabled people (e.g. evacuation chairs), it is important to ensure that its operational capability is maintained.
The Evacuation Chair is a cost effective method of ensuring the safe evacuation of non-ambulant persons from the upper or lower levels of buildings in the event of an emergency or when lifts cannot be used due to maintenance or breakdown
