An evacuation chair is a crucial piece of equipment within any commercial environment. Whilst previously it was thought to be the responsibility of the fire service to remove wheelchair users from buildings in the case of an emergency, in actual fact the responsibility lies with the property manager. An evac chair can be used to remove individuals that use wheelchairs from a building quickly and easily, even if the only escape route is a flight of stairs. Like any equipment it is important that evac chairs are regularly serviced, to maintain their safety and reliability.
At K5 we specialise in the supply of evacuation chairs and disability access products to both commercial and domestic clients. In addition to the products that can be viewed on the website, we also offer maintenance and servicing to both those that have bought evacuation chairs through us and through other retailers.
It is a legal requirement for all evac chairs to undergo annual checks to ensure that they are safe for use in an emergency. We can arrange annual maintenance schemes and equipment checks for our services, making it even easier for businesses to comply with the necessary standards.
A member of our qualified team will visit the premises at a specified time and complete an on-site service. This means that businesses do not need to worry about making arrangements for a replacement chair, whilst theirs is being serviced. The check consists of a 25-point service and once complete the equipment will be stamped safe for use.
Information about our evac chair services and some of the products that we have available to purchase can be viewed on our website. Arranging a service really couldn’t be simpler, just fill out our online contact form to arrange for a member of our team to call you back.
