An ambulance chair is primarily for use in first aid rooms and around a building to help support/move wheelchair users at pool/spa gym etc., where they might not want or be able to use their own.

What are evacuation chairs?

Evacuation chairs provide mobility-impaired people with a safe and comfortable way to evacuate a building in the event of an emergency, such as a fire.

The chairs can help a variety of different people who may be in your building. A person may be unable to be evacuated without assistance due to disability, an injury, mental health, pregnancy or other medical conditions. Evacuation chairs allow them to leave a building quickly and safely during an emergency.

Evacuation chairs are also known as disabled evacuation chairs, stairway evacuation chairs, fire evacuation chairs, or evac chairs.

How do they work?

The chairs are made out of materials that are lightweight but strong. While going down the stairs, the tracks attached to the chair create friction which slows down the descent and allows for a controlled journey. Once a person reaches ground level, the chair can then be used as a wheelchair to ensure the evacuee can get to safety. When not in use, evacuation chairs simply fold flat and are stored neatly on the wall.

It’s important to ensure that you have people in your building trained in evacuation chair handling. This is so anyone assisting the evacuee is both confident and capable, and helps get everyone to safety in a quick and efficient way.
