A North American industry leader in the manufacture of emergency evacuation chairs has announced it will now serve the UAE following expansion into the region.

More and more organisations and service providers are investing in emergency equipment and reviewing procedures in line with the global trend. We’re delighted to now be in position locally to help businesses and other organisations in the UAE keen to ensure their most vulnerable users and employees are safeguarded in the event of an emergency.”

The Evacuscape evacuation chair has proved extremely popular with employers, building managers, and others who seek to accommodate service and building users and keep them safe. The company is widely regarded as the leading industry manufacturer, with its best-in-class chair rich in features and competitively priced.
Each Evacuscape emergency chair includes a unique failsafe brake system, five point safety harness, front carrying handles and a solid yet comfortable seat and back that even the costliest competitors are unable to match. All Evacuscape chairs are shipped fully assembled, and include a protective cover, wall bracket and instructional DVD.
Worldwide, evacuation legislation increasingly requires proper emergency equipment and procedures to be in place as part of emergency preparedness plans. While the adoption of evacuation equipment is growing, many buildings still do not have the correct tools in place to meet legal obligations. As a result, the majority of organizations risk non-compliance, possible prosecution and may be putting lives in danger.
