KFive are experts in the field of evacuation equipment, training and services. Since the company was founded in 2004, they have been a leading source of emergency evacuation equipment in the UK, as well as providing after sales support and information.
Evacuation equipment has become an essential and legally binding part of any building’s fire and general safety plan. Having the right equipment to get everyone out safely is a core part of any safety strategy and compliance with the Health and Safety in the Workplace legislation in the UK. We have been meeting these needs and supplying quality evacuation equipment for over 10 years.
How we could help your institution
Schools, colleges and universities are places of high occupancy and risk. With so many people in the same place at the same time, it is essential that a stringent evacuation procedure is in place at all times. Education facilities are also very inclusive places, meaning there is a definite need for evacuation chairs and other equipment for disabled service users.
KFive not only provides the UK’s leading evacuation chairs, ramps and lifts, they also offer training in the safe and secure use of all their products. By training the trainers, they also propagate the growth of greater awareness of evacuation equipment and its use.
If your school, college or university is evaluating a fire safety or evacuation plan, speak to us about our available products and for advice on creating the safest facility possible. All students and staff have the right to learn in an environment that is safe and risk-managed. In addition, buildings used for educational purposes must all meet the UK’s health and safety requirements for able-bodied and disabled people. If you are unsure about what this means, get in touch to find out more.
