The Three Layered Escape Chute system is an invaluable aid when used for applications whereby persons are at risk at height and do not have a rapid means of egress to ground level in an emergency event.

 

The escape chute not only offers heat and flame protection but is a rapid and safe means to egress from a tall structure. The benefit of the Three Layered Escape Chute System is that it is capable of evacuating persons quickly, yet provides a relatively safe and enclosed environment for the evacuees.

The enclosed chute is helpful when used to evacuate people/persons with height phobias or similar ailments. Once in the chute you will descend to ground level safely and calmly.  This type of escape chute requires no physical exertion from the occupants and can accommodate, stretchers or persons wearing fall protection or safety equipment.

 

By moving arms and legs outwards your descent speed is reduced, however descent in all cases is controlled. It is always preferred to have trained personal at the top and bottom of the chute, this ensures that people who are panicking can be re-assured and the evacuation controlled.  The person at the ground level will help evacuees exit from the air gap at the base of the chute.

 

Again this is helpful if an evacuee becomes unconscious while in the chute as the trained person at ground level will grab the last 4/5 feet of chute and twist it to create a break  effect , this will enable unconscious or injured persons to be removed from the chute safely.

The single-entry chute platform is custom-designed for each application. Some installation sites may require minor alterations to the fabric of the structure to accommodate the custom-designed platform.  The platform can be supplied as a permanent or portable installation. The portable escape chute and container are stored, in the case of an emergency the chute and container are placed into the chute cradle, this a permanent fixture and is located on a window balcony, hand railings or another suitable location, RSS agree position before undertaking of workscope.  In all cases design drawings are prepared and issued to the customer for approval.   

 

Buildings vary significantly in terms of:

 

• Design

• Height

• Size

• Structure

• Construction

 

RSS would need to know where the proposed location for the single-entry chute would be, this is required for our design engineer’s and would include the following:

 

•  Where would the platform be installed at a rooftop, balcony, window, corridor, etc.?

•  What are the building materials at the installation site, tiles, marble, cement, brick, etc?

•  Are there any limitations or constraints to the installation area or floor space for the installation of the platform.

•  Photos or simple sketches of the installation would be helpful and would greatly help our design team.

 

RSS design department work closely with the customer to ensure we have all the necessary measurements of the proposed installation site prior to design.  

Correct measurements will save time and money, especially during the installation.

 

Deck, Mezzanine Installation:

 

•  Would the platform be installed outside on a deck or mezzanine floor structure?

•  The distance from the evacuation point to ground level?

•  If installed inside the distance between the ceiling (wall/floor) and installation location?

•  If outside what is the proposed chute container location

•  How many persons would use the chute in an emergency event?

•  Are there any hazards associated with the proposed evacuation location such as stored chemicals or combustible materials.

Due to severe lower temperatures this system was fitted with an electrical heat trace system to keep the chute within the container warm in colder  temperatures.
