Evac+Chair International has just increased the angle of descent capabilities of its Evac+Chair emergency evacuation chair by a crucial 2° so that it now has an operating angle of 40°.
This new product development not only sets a new UK benchmark that exceeds building regulations, but widens the application of the chair so that those with steeper stairs typically found in the domestic housing sector or in period buildings, can now benefit from the Evac+Chair as an emergency evacuation solution for the mobility impaired.
The 20 year proven Evac+Chair, which is manufactured in the UK, can be operated safely and effortlessly at this angle enabling a single user to evacuate a person with mobility difficulties quickly and easily using continuous belts to provide controlled descent over stair nosings in proportion to passenger weight. This latest product development follows hard on the heels of an increase in the payload capabilities of the Evac+Chair from 136kg to 150kg during 2006, underlining its position at the forefront of its market.
Evac+Chair International also offers a complete Turn-Key solution including site assessment, training courses, nationwide on-site servicing of the chairs and an optional finance scheme.
