Drop Down Fire Escape Ladder

In an emergency, this permanently fixed fire escape ladder changes from a slim drainpipe like unit into a safe and sturdy means of escape. Just pull out the lock pin, the ladder folds out and transforms into an easy to use solid ladder.

Fire escape ladders should be fitted as close to escape window as possible. A connection kit including all drill bits, fixing kits, bolts and plugs are included with each ladder.

Tested to BS EN 131-2.
Load tests with reference to BS ISO 131-2:2010. Ladder was subjected to a veritcal load of 345Kg at the extreme outer end of the rungs, assuming the load is applied to the center the load values would almost double.
