Evac Chair


Evac+Chair is a universal evacuation solution for smooth stairway descent during an emergency. Single user operation ensures no heavy lifting or manual handling is required during emergency evacuation procedures.

In the event of an emergency such as an earthquake or a fire, lifts should not be used in multi-storey buildings, therefore people with a disability or who are injured may become trapped. Our evacuation chair is the perfect solution; it is a light weight and easy to use device which glides effortlessly down stairways to assist with the quick and safe removal of people who are mobility impaired in the event of an emergency evacuation.

The Evac+Chair is wall mounted and folds away discreetly making it the perfect solution to ensure your business is compliant with the latest health & safety and fire safety regulations.

Evac+Chair is fully equipped to provide the best training and equipment needed by large scale buildings and venues in the event of an emergency egress, stairway evacuation, building evacuation or fire evacuation situation. In order to meet fire and safety regulations, it is important for all large scale buildings to provide adequate evacuation products for those that should need them.

Emergency evacuation chairs, also known as disabled evacuation chair, stairway evacuation chair, fire evacuation chairs, evacuation chair or evac chairs, allow wheel chair users or less able bodied people to be evacuated quickly and safely down stairs in the event of an emergency.
