A key part of your fire safety provision, evacuation chairs will enable you to help those who cannot easily escape swiftly and safely in the event of an emergency.
Current legislation under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 dictates that a company or organisation must provide a means of evacuation for everyone, including those who are disabled or less mobile.
That’s where our range of both powered and manual evacuation chairs will make such a difference, a tried and tested product that will allow for the safe and speedy evacuation of those who need it most – giving you complete peace of mind.
Evacuation chairs are the safest and most effective way to assist, not only those who rely on the use of a wheelchair, but someone who maybe has a heart condition, asthma or whose movement is temporarily restricted by a broken leg.
Securi-Guard works with the CheckFire Group, one of the UK’s leading providers of fire safety products to give you access to a range of evacuation chair solutions, which all meet the necessary standards.
You can trust in us to pinpoint the right chair for your requirements and building infrastructure.
Evacuations chairs are increasingly being used as a vital fire safety aid and are suitable for a variety of sectors, including:
Securi-Guard can also help you bolster your fire protection measures with the provision of a disabled refuge. The refuge is a ‘safe area’ or exit staircase enabling those with mobility problems to remain safe until evacuation from the building takes place. An Emergency Voice Communication System (EVC) can also be fitted in the refuge to maintain communication channels during any evacuation process.
Committed to training and support
Securi-Guard has the knowledge and expertise to support you in all aspects of fire safety provision and our evacuation chair service is no different.
We carry out a rigorous Risk Assessment at your premises, part of which will be to identify where evacuation chairs will prove most useful and which type will work best.
Our experts will also ensure designated staff have the required training on how to use the chairs safely and effectively – and the importance of ongoing maintenance.
The law states that there must be enough operators trained in the proper use of the chairs and that they are correctly maintained in line with manufacturer guidelines.
That’s why ongoing training sessions are important – and Securi-Guard can support you in delivering these too.
