THE ORIGINAL AND STILL THE BEST EVACUATION CHAIRS

We have been manufacturing life safety products for 40 years.

Our state-of-the-art UK headquarters enables us to design and manufacture products using world class technologies and processes. With in-house powder coating and textiles divisions and using local suppliers for raw materials, we can ensure our products are manufactured to the highest quality standards, whilst minimising our impact upon the environment.

We are fully committed to ensuring all of our products are consistent with the highest quality standards, are fit-for-purpose and right first-time. We have a range of comprehensive quality management systems in place to control all procedures and processes across the organisation. This includes ISO 9001 for Quality Management standards and ISO 13485 for Medical Device Quality Management.

We are the original manufacturer and global leader in emergency evacuation chairs for the mobility impaired. Independently tested and proven to be the safest and fastest means of evacuation, we are trusted and relied upon in emergency situations to assist in saving people’s lives. With a wide range of options, we have a product to suit any type of staircase or personnel requirement.

Our evacuation chairs are strong, yet lightweight and include a number of features that make them comfortable and extremely easy to operate, even for a single user. We provide FREE evacuation assessments, which we recommend every building has prior to the purchase of one of our products.

Our team of specialists will be able to recommend the most suitable evacuation chair, the best installation point and provide practical advice on evacuation methods and the importance of a Personal Emergency Evacuation Plan (PEEP).

 

CONTINUALLY RAISING THE BAR FOR BRITISH MANUFACTURING

We source product components from local/UK based businesses, which means we can ensure our products are of the highest quality standards and also have a low carbon footprint. With continual investment in our manufacturing capabilities and ensuring we are using world-class technologies, we are committed to ensuring our products raise the bar in terms of performance and quality.

Product quality is at the forefront of what we do and with a wide range of checks throughout the entire manufacturing process, we are committed to ensuring our products meet the highest quality standards, are fit-for-purpose and right first-time.

We have a range of comprehensive quality management systems in place to control all procedures and processes across the organisation. This includes ISO 9001 for Quality Management standards and ISO 13485 for Medical Device Quality Management.

DRIVING THE FUTURE OF EVACUATION

We have a dedicated research and development team who continuously innovate to ensure people with disabilities and mobility impairments, can be safely evacuated from buildings in the event of a fire, or as a result of other emergencies.
