Evacuation chairs, often referred to as evac chairs, are an important staple in any public property. In case of a fire or any other emergency, lifts are one of the first parts of the building that are shut down, often making it very difficult for wheelchair users to leave the building. It is a common misconception that individuals with disabilities should be left in a building’s refuge area until they can be rescued by the fire brigade. In actual fact they should be removed from the building at the same time as everyone else, using an evac chair for quick and efficient movement through the building.
K5 Evacuation Chair Equipment supplies a wide selection of disabled aids to domestic, commercial and industrial customers. Their range of equipment includes evac chairs, wheelchair lifts, wheelchair ramps, handipark barriers, stretchers, wheelchairs and many other products.
All of their evac chairs are able to carry a range of loads and come with a variety of features such as, strapping, head, foot and arm rests, padded seats, to promote the utmost comfort and security for the user.
Of course, K5 Evacuation Chair Equipment appreciates that it will be the responsibility of others in the building to help wheelchair users to exit the building, primarily the employees. Therefore, they offer full competency training for evacuation chairs and all of the products in their range.
Training is designed to ensure that employees are confident enough to use the equipment so that they appreciate how the user will feel and what they will experience when it is used.
