Like its predecessors, the 300H model evacuation chair sets new standards in its field, this time in terms of payload capacity and angle of descent.
Built on the latest research, the chair now accepts a person of up to 150kg, catering for a growing population of heavier people with mobility difficulties, yet is still lightweight at less than 10kg.
Tried and tested advancements in the angle of decent also mean that the new chair functions equally as well on stair gradients of 40% as it does at 28%, making it fully compliant with National Fire Protection Association guidelines.
The Evac+Chair is a cost effective solution that allows employers to comply with the Disability Discrimination Act which states they must provide an adequate means of escape for all. It allows one person to transport a mobility-impaired individual on the flat or down stairs quickly and safely without the need for lifting or great physical strength. The smooth, controlled operation of the chair is due to the interface of specially modified V-belts which work continuously to slow down descent over stair nosings in proportion to the weight of the passenger.
The company offers a total ‘turn-key’ solution from site surveys and the manufacture and supply of the evacuation chair through to training and servicing.
