Product Highlights:

  • Tracked chair with unique self braking system

  • One/two person operation
  • Bariatric capability
  • Lightweight and simple to use
  • Dual position seating
  • Head, chest and thigh restraints

Key Benefits:

  • Deployment: Tricky releases, and difficult belts and buckles impede safe and quick assembly and evacuation.
  • Weight of Unit: Weight is a major factor, particularly if the evacuation equipment needs to be carried to the passenger, or simply removed from its securing location. Since the Evac Chair requires only one operator, the chair must be light enough to be lifted by a single individual yet strong enough to support the average passenger. Evac Chair is only 19 pounds and has a carrying capacity of 500 pounds.
  • Ease of Transfer: It is designed for easy transfer. People of reduced mobility may require assistance, thus the evacuation chair is stable, low, open on both sides and provide passenger safety at all times by not moving during transfer.
  • Maneuverability: Building regulations require a 4-ft width of stairways, halls, and landings. Evac Chair is able to maneuver these areas with ease.
  • Speed and Control of Descent: Evac Chair can safely descend two flights of stairs in 15 seconds without blocking the stairs for other users by using the Polymatic v-belt as a friction breaking device. This system uses gravity and the leverage of the operator to create friction and stop the chair.
  • Stability: Evac Chair has an easy fold out two wheel trolley which allows for flat surface stability. Even with this stability, passengers should never be left unattended in any evacuation chair.
  • Restraints and Comfort: The seat pocket “cups” the body securely and the rider is strapped into the chair. The sliding head rest and padded back allow for passenger comfort.
