Evac+Chair, the leading emergency evacuation chair with a 21 year pedigree, has just reached the significant milestone of 10,000 satisfied customers.
These customers span many diverse markets from retail and leisure to education and the public sector. Many of the Evac+Chairs installed are also on contract where full after-sales training, and regular maintenance and servicing are provided. Evac+Chair as an emergency solution is gathering pace as tighter health and safety regulations are coming into force with the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 (RRO) and the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) requiring building owners to have a means of evacuating people with mobility difficulties. The Evac+Chair fits the bill as it enables a single user to evacuate a person of up to 150Kg quickly and easily.
This British product is made to high specification and quality levels in the company’s Birmingham factory and has been approved under the stringent TÜV GS German quality standard which covers not only the product but the factory production process too. This safety and quality mark only appears on products that have been evaluated, tested and approved for safety by an independent third party and includes tests on payload, tilt and kinetics of the evacuation chairs. Such is the company’s confidence in its product that the Evac+Chair comes complete with a five-year manufacturer’s warranty on parts and labour.
Evac+Chair International constantly invests in developing the product, recently for instance increasing the chair’s possible angle of descent to an operating angle of 40º. It also invests in training courses for chair users, conducting a continuous programme of these courses each year.
