In many situations INGSTROM Escapes Chutes got the solution!

In many ways, INGSTROM Escape Chute system is a universally designed product that is accessible and usable by the greatest number of people, regardless of their capabilities. It can be deployed inside or on the exterior walls of the building, will operate even if the electrical supply to a building is lost during a fire, provide escape solutions for high rise buildings under fire (or damaged by explosions) whose aim is to bypass impassable floors or blocked stairways. These would allow people trapped in higher elevations to escape safely to the street.

The Ingstrom Escape Chute systems serve as both alternative and supplemental means of egress for buildings and structures for high rise buildings. It facilitate faster movement of more people in an emergency for some buildings that may lack of some safety features: sprinklers, smoke detection, smoke exhaust, and emergency power. This supplemental evacuation provides a high degree of assurance that every occupants would have a chance to get out alive even if they are mobility impaired and that the lifts/elevators are not in operations.
