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.
Three-way Protection

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.

Special Applications

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. 

Unlimited Installation Possibilities

The 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 building. 

Portable Installations

The Ingstrom Escape Chute is also adaptable for use with mobile rescue units, such as fire brigades' ladder trucks and skylifts. The portable units can either be ready mounted or in a cassette which is ready for use when required.

The Escape Chute Meets All Demands

The Ingstrom Escape chute is a complete escape system. It is indisputably the fastest way to save lives, it is always ready for use - and it protects the user as he escapes.

The escape chute can be installed permanently in all buildings or in mobile rescue units. It can be used successfully without any previous practice, and for evacuating the old and the infirm. In financial terms, the escape chute is often the most economical way of providing a safe escape route.
