In the event of an emergency such as a fire or an earthquake, passenger lifts should not be used in a multi-storey building. This can create an issue for the mobility impaired or injured who could become trapped.

If a persons capability to evacuate is impaired by a medical condition like heightened anxiety or having to exert themselves by using stairs in a bit of a hurry, then assistance might need to be provided. Evac+Chair’s products are the perfect solution; their evacuation chairs are a lightweight 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 300 series features 182kg payload capacity, is lightweight, easy to use and comes supplied in a blue textured finish and contrasting yellow hammock and is the most popular single-person operation evacuation chair within the range.
