Evacuations cause a number of problems for a number of reasons. Evacuation sledges are ideal, but what if the person is bed-ridden and moving them is dangerous? This is where evacuation sheets are useful; the entire mattress can then be converted into the evacuation sledge. The patient doesn't have to be moved and can be safely evacuated. Evacuation sheets can vary depending on what type of mattress is being used, from anti-pressure to air mattresses.

There are a number of different factors to be taken into account when planning the evacuation of a building. This is especially true of somewhere like a hospital, where not only may there be people with mobility issues, but there may be those who are completely bedridden. Moving them could be detrimental to their health or not possible, ruling out the use of evacuation chairs or stretchers. The use of evacuation sheets, however, can overcome this problem.
Designed to be left attached to the mattress at all times, evacuation sheets enables the entire mattress to be transformed into an emergency evacuation sledge. This is done due to the surface on the base of the sheet enabling the mattress to be moved by one or two operators in the case of a fire evacuation. Long handles move the sheet, bringing the whole mattress with it and making it so the patient never has to get out of the bed even in an emergency.
Evacuation sheets come in a number of styles. This makes them suitable for different mattress types, whether it is an alternating air mattress or an anti-pressure mattress. Evacuation from a building couldn't be easier, even if the patient is unable to get out of bed. Use an evacuation sheet and suddenly you have an entire emergency evacuation sledge ready to go.
