Evac+Chair prides itself on going above and beyond for its customers. Not just by providing the most efficient means of escape, but by educating and raising awareness of the changing nature of risks surrounding evacuation. Evac+Chair conducts regular market research to gain insight on how industry trends are changing in respect to emergency evacuation.
