An Escape Chute is a special kind of emergency exit, used where conventional fire escape stairways are impractical. The chute is made by special fabric installed near a special exit on an upper floor or roof of a building, or a tall structure. During use, the chute is deployed, and may be secured at the bottom by a fire fighting crew some distance out from the building. Once the tube is ready, escapees enter the tube and slide down to a lower level or the ground level.

With the buildings in recent times becoming taller and taller, Fire Safety, Disaster Management and Building Evacuation are issues which are more important than ever before. Most of the new sky-scrapers coming up have been designed with the latest fire detection and fire fighting systems. However, it is perhaps even more important to have an efficient Evacuation System in place to get all the occupants out of the building and out of harms way in case the situation escalates beyond control. This is a matter which has to be addressed very seriously and the occupants and Property Managers of such tall buildings must also be made aware of the Evacuation System and the procedures for evacuating the building and getting everyone away from the danger.

Self Rescue System is a relatively safe, simple, low cost self-escape “Controlled Descent Device” that functions as an alternative means of emergency escape when needed. The portability and flexibility of Self Rescue System provides an efficient and cost effective strategy to create multiple “Escape Stations” at strategic locations in the building. This pre-plan approach of providing multiple “Escape Stations” throughout the structure in key locations would enable everyone inside the building ready access to an evacuation system in the event of life threatening emergency. It also enables the system to be relocated to another pre-plan safer location away from fire. The system can also be moved to another office when the company moves to a new location.

The Single Entry Chute is a system that has been designed for Individual Offices, Homes or Building which do not have a vacant duct or shaft. The Single Entry Chute can be installed on any convenient Window, Gallery or Terrace.

The single escape chute is recommended for installation on exterior window, balcony, rooftop or similar at new or existing buildings. It best serves occupants of that particular floor. This chute is designed in 3 layers, the outer layer protects the chute against flames and heat, the middle layer provides a speed restraining effect and the inner layer supports the whole weight of chute. This 3-way protection protects the evacuees once inside the chute from fire, heat, and smoke during evacuation. Available in a maximum length of 200 Meter.

Example of application areas: building, ships, dumpers and wind turbines.

This is also an ideal solution for providing an Evacuation System for Existing Buildings where a duct is not available and a Evacuation system is found to be necessary. The Chute could be installed quite easily on the existing Refuge Floors to provide an Evacuation Path in case of an escalation of the Emergency Situation or for the Evacuation of an Injured, Elderly, Physically Handicapped or Unconscious person.
