Escape LaddersEscape ladders are essential when access and exits are restricted and the stairs are out of use. There must be an exit route out of a building, even from an upper floor with the stairwells/doors potentially blocked. Escape ladders are an ideal solution for this, for they can be easily stored out of the way and can be accessed instantly during an emergency.

According to the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, there must be an exit out of a building in the event of an emergency, whether that is a fire or another incident. Any building that is more than one storey high needs to ensure there are alternative routes available, for while you may believe you have a plan in place, will that plan still hold if the stairs are blocked? Is there another way out of the building or off the floor?
Escape ladders can either be stored safely out of the way or remain secured into position depending on what type of escape ladder you are using. This makes them convenient for when there is not an emergency, but available for immediate access when a situation arises. Escape ladders offer you a peace of mind when it comes to your exit route, knowing escape is possible even if the door is blocked.
There are a range of different escape ladders available, varying in lengths and styles. Finding the right escape ladder is important, for you need to know it has been secured and is of the right length to get people to safety. Whether you are in a domestic or business environment, the possession and use of an escape ladder ensures a route will always be available regardless of where the emergency has taken place.
