Evac+Chair are essential manufacturers of high-quality emergency evacuation chairs for the mobility impaired
Evac+Chair is the original manufacturer and global leader in emergency evacuation chairs for the mobility impaired. With 40 years of experience in the design and UK manufacture of evacuation chairs, Evac+Chair is trusted and relied upon in emergency situations to assist in saving people’s lives.
With 14.1 million disabled people living in the UK, it is imperative that all commercial buildings provide a safe means of evacuation for these individuals. In addition, temporary mobility impairments, such as a sporting injury, pregnancy or even a panic attack brought about by an emergency evacuation, will impede an individual’s ability to self-evacuate. Therefore, having an evacuation chair in a commercial building is vital to ensure everyone can be safely evacuated in the event of a fire, or other emergency.
An Evac+Chair will provide a safe means of escape for the mobility impaired individual and protect everyone. In the event of an emergency should a mobility impaired person attempt to evacuate without assistance, they could impede the entire evacuation, putting their lives and the lives of others at risk.
Independent research carried out by the University of Greenwich concluded that an Evac+Chair provides the safest, quickest means of escape for the mobility impaired, compared with other types of evacuation products. Whilst the design of the Evac+Chair has been unaltered over the last 40 years, it has been enhanced, in terms of passenger safety and comfort. In addition, the range has expanded to provide products that suit different types of staircases and accommodate heavier payload passengers.
Whilst Evac+Chair products are suitable for all environments including offices, hotels, schools, sports stadia, retail outlets, healthcare and factories, each chair has a unique set of features that make it more suitable for certain environments.
