In an emergency situation, the Fire and Rescue Service recommend evacuating a building, whether a home or office block, within two minutes. Whilst in everyday situations this wouldn’t be an issue, in an emergency situation it can be, especially for those who have difficulty walking. Fortunately there are devices which are available to help with safe and efficient evacuations, and here at K5 we specialise in providing such products. One of the main products we supply to a range of businesses is that of evacuation chairs; all of which have been manufactured by some of the leading names within the industry.
Our range of chairs, from those which are battery operated through to those which need to be operated manually, are designed with safety and reliability in mind and can cater for people of all sizes; helping to ensure that in an emergency situation your premises are evacuated quickly, efficiently and safely.
One of the popular battery operated chairs which we currently have available is the EZGlide Power Evacuation Chair. This chair offers various benefits to both the operator and the person being evacuated and is highly recommended for businesses where a large amount of ground needs to be covered before the exits are reached.
The EZGlide Power Evacuation Chair offers a load capacity of thirty-five stone and has an average speed of two floors per minute with the help of its 12V rechargeable battery. If required, the chair can be manually overridden to ensure a quicker evacuation.
Here at K5 we have a wide selection of manually operated chairs, including the EC1 and the Saver Safe.
The EC1 chair is considered one of the best value for money evacuation chairs currently available. Along with offering comfort, it’s lightweight and robust and comes with a weight capacity of 165kg. For those who want to have a manual chair which offers more weight capacity, then the Saver Safe with a capacity of 180kgs is the perfect evacuation chair.
