Escape Chute

Escape Chute can lead escaper's to the ground safely when the indoor stairs are blocked with flame and smoke. This long, bag-shaped chute is made of a sponge material and is simple to use. The escaper goes into the tunnel and slides down. They are used in kindergartens, day-care centers, schools, hospitals and other buildings.Escape Chutes are used from high areas, where there is a possibility of being trapped by fire, terrorism, criminal attack, or industrial accident.

Detailed Description for Escape Chute

"Verti-Scape",

The Vertical Escape Chute is a device which aids in the mass and rapid evacuation of people from high structures, where one chute is capable of evacuating some 375 evacuees from a high rise building in 15 to 20 minutes.

Where possible Escape Chute Systems recommend the use standard stairwells, and offer the escape chute as an alternative means of emergency egress, However should the stairwell be blocked, or full of smoke, then a fast and efficient allternative means of emergency evacuation are Escape Chutes.

The escape chute can be used by people with disabilities and after a little training blind people are more than capable of using the chute, It is also possible for a person to enter the chute, and then have a injured second person placed upon their shoulders, to assist the second person to evacuate.

The Escape Chute can be installed onto most structures, and only requires a clear drop from the evacuation point to ground level.

 

The Vertical Escape Chute when deployed runs parallel with the side of the structure from which it was deployed, and can used immediately after deployment.

As you travel through the escape chute you can look up, and down, no smoke can enter the chute.

To exit your feet will touch the ground, you then crouch and extract your body from the chute and walk away.


 

 

 

 Description

1. The anti-fire escape chute is mainly used for people to run out from high buildings when a fire happened where elevator or other equipment can’t be used. This escape chute has become a mandatory condition for safety escape from high buildings at present.

2. The escape chute is suitable for any places from a high position which can be used by both adults and children.

3. This LS-EC-60 serious escape chute belongs to vertical/hopper/elastic type escape chute as the most popular type at present.

4. This type of air rescue escape chute is suitable to be fixed on windows of type 1 and type 2.

 

Application

1. Aramid cloth of three layers consist the escape chute with different performances of outter fire resisting, middle heat thermal resisting & inner slide guidance;

2. Many pieces of elastic rubber rings on suitable places of chute to maintain safe & slow falling speed;

3. Storage tank of this hopper type escape chute is made up of 304 stainless steel material to keep the chute clean and safe for storage.

4. The escape chute set needs only to be placed into the stainless steel tank onside window frame inside building.

 

Features

The Verti-Scape Escape Chute

How it Works 


Is manufactured from three completely separate and distinctly different fabric tubes/chutes.

Each tube/chute has it's own function to perform, and it is only when these three tubes/chutes are assembled together do they then become an Escape Chute.


 

The Outer layer of the escape chute (Dark Grey) is there to protect the users from flame and radiated heat, it can withstand a constant temperature of between 550 & 600° C, and melts at around 810° C

Note the gap between the outer layer and the middle/braking layer, this allows air to circulate between the two tubes, thus preventing heat transfer.

The Middle/Braking layer (Light Gray) is the layer that makes the system work, it is an elsticated tube which is approximantely 300mm in diameter in it’s rested form, but has the capability to expand to 600mm as the evacuee travels through, as the evacuee applies outward pressure from within the chute, the evacuee slow down, as they release pressure they speed up, the evacuee has full control of the speed at which they descend.

The inner/support chute (Beige) gives the system it's strength to hold the weight of the all chute users withgin the chute at any one time, this layer has loops stitched into the top, into which we insert a stainless steel rolled pipe.
The pipe is then held in place by the deployment device, or into a recess set into the floor in the case of a multi-entry system.




 

To use the escape chute, the user sits on the edge at the entry point, with their feet and lower legs in the chute, at this point you will feel the escape chute grip your lower, legs, expand your legs against the chute, and you will feel considerable resistance.

While supporting your body weight with your hands, lower your self into the chute, keeping your legs fully extended against the inside wall of the chute.

Once your shoulders are into the chute, push your hands and arms against the wall of the chute, this action and the bending of your legs at the hips will bring you to a stop.

By relaxing the pressure against the wall you will then descend.


Relax Pressure = SPEED UP.      Increase Pressure = SLOW DOWN 


By applying enough pressure you can come to a complete stop, and just sit there!

The evacuee has full control of the speed at which they decend.

 

 SINGLE ENTRY ESCAPE CHUTE

A Single-Entry Escape Chute means that there is only one entry point and one exit point, where as a Multi-Entry Escape Chute can be entered at various floor levels, but still has only one exit point. 

Single Entry Systems are generally installed onto the roofs or through walls , windows and off balconies of buildings, and are deployed on the outside of the building.

Generally escape chutes deployed outside of the building have a height limit of around 120meters or 50 floors.

Typical is a roof mounted storage/deployment device, Model No 700 series similar to the systems seen below.

 

 

 

 

 

Multi-Entry Escape Chute



The vast majority of Vertical Escape Chute applications to date are described as a "Single Entry" system; this is where you have just one escape chute that has only one entry point.

But in the case of a Multi-Entry Systems, instead of the chute going from the roof to ground level as a one piece chute, we have  chute equal to the height of each floor, where we insert a chute into the floor, this then sends the evacuee through to the floor below, and directly into the chute starting from the floor below, this is then repeated on all floors until ground level, or the designated exit point.
