ExitMaster Versa Evacuation Chair
It is a legislative requirement that buildings must have an evacuation plan in place for the safe evacuation of all persons present, including those with restricted mobility. Lifts are not advisable and for those with limited mobility stairs are not an option, but these problems can be addressed with the ExitMaster Versa Evacuation Chair.
With an improved passenger capacity of 180kg, single-operator control technology, and four-wheel travel, it offers safer and more dependant passenger and patient evacuation in an emergency. It is supplied with a wall bracket and cover, and complies with legislation to offer a practical and reliable approach to evacuation.
Safer and Easier Transfers
The Versa Evacuation Chair has been designed to provide safer, easier, and more dependable passenger and patient transfers in an emergency. It is easy to set up at short notice, and improves comfort and safety of use.
The rear wheels feature safety brakes to enable greater control, which will be paramount when rushing out of a building. The chair is also fitted with a top step safety feature, and does not need to be carried down stairs, thus improving safety for both passenger and operator.
Safer evacuation down stairs
With four wheels ready to go, the Versa Evacuation Chair can be pushed with ease. This helps to increase the stability of the chair, which is essential when evacuating a building in a hurry.
SOLOGo Single-Operator Technology
The Versa Evacuation Chair has been designed with Single-Operator Load and Go (SOLOGo) technology. In emergency situations, particularly in business or medical environments, there may not be enough staff on the premises to assist with passenger evacuations. By utilising the SOLOGo capabilities, a single operator can help a passenger into the chair and evacuate them safely from the building.
By ensuring that reduced assistance is required, this frees up more staff to evacuate passengers and patients. This is a potentially lifesaving feature of the Versa Evacuation Chair, as it will help evacuate the building at a quicker rate.
The Versa Evacuation Chair provides an improved passenger capacity of up to 180kg (28 stone). It also includes a footrest and backrest to support passengers in transit, furthering the practicality of the chair by providing enhanced physical support and comfort to the patient, who will already have reduced mobility and may be suffering from some degree of pain, during an evacuation.
An increasing amount of legislation is now in place to instruct such authoritative figures as business owners and building managers of the legal requirements for installing suitable evacuation equipment within the premises. To ensure that these requirements are met, the ExitMaster Versa Evacuation Chair complies with the following legislation:
- British Standards BS 9999 Fire safety in the design, management, and use of buildings
- Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005
- Equality Act 2010
