A frightening scenario: Emergency situation at a multi-story building. Escape via the (emergency) staircase is possible, at least as long as heat and smoke are kept out. Suffocation by smoke in particular causes many fatalities. Trying to get away via the roof and wait there for a helicopter to arrive is another option. But when a helicopter comes close, the rotor blades act like a huge fan kindling the fire. Yet another option is to wait for the Fire Department to arrive with their ladder truck or sky-lift, but these vehicles also have their limitations: evacuating large numbers of people in a short time is not possible. Is this the end? Fortunately not, because more than 30 people per minute can be evacuated with the “Ingström Escape Chute” – an invention of Mr Stig Ingström.
Mobiltex evacuation system was founded in 1980 in Scandinavia and within the following years the ingström Escape Chute® was developed. The Ingstrom escape chute is revolutionary in the emergency escape industry since the unique design makes it possible to mass evacuate disabled, old, children and unconscious patients as patients in stretchers to escape an emergency quicker and safer way than traditional rescue equipment. To date, over 3000 escape chutes have been installed in buildings, industrial plants, dumpers and are frequently used by the fire brigades worldwide. The chute system has been further developed and it´s today an important emergency escape in the mining and energy industry. Through a network of authorized distributors, Mobiltex Evacuation Systems provides testing and commissioning, training and maintenance worldwide.
All materials and parts used in the Escape Chute designed by Mobiltex development department. The chute consists only of materials with EU origin. All the installations of the Ingström Escape Chute® worldwide have Guarantee/Trade Warranty of 18 months and with Product Liability Insurance.
