|The Ingstrom Escape Chute is
the fastest and most efficient escape system on the market. When permanently installed,
the escape chute is ready to use within a few seconds from release. It enables as many as
30 people a minute to be evacuated from a building in fire.
The escape chute
consists of three layers. The outer layer is made of fireproof glass fiber material which
does not ignite even when exposed to open flame. The intermediate layer is of an elastic
material which helps to regulate the speed at which the escapee passes down the chute. The
inner, supporting, layer is made from DuPont's Kevlar fiber, which has ten times the
tensile strength of steel. Its coefficient of friction is so low that no injuries are
caused by friction.
The escape chute
provides a unique solution to the problems of evacuating in difficult conditions. It takes
up very little space is thus the only possible means of constructing emergency exits in
old buildings where space is often short. It can also be installed unobtrusively in
buildings of historic interest, without compromising on safety.
innumerable installation alternatives guarantee that the escape chute is suitable for
buildings of any kind. It can be installed permanently either inside or outside of the

ladder trucks and skylifts. The portable units can either be ready mounted or in a
cassette which is ready for use when required.
