Good Looking and Unobtrusive
The ladder is very small : folded back, all that can be
seen is a column about 10 cm. in size, comparable to a down pipe.
It can thus integrate perfectly with both old and new
buildings, even on the principle facade. The exposed surfaces may be painted (in any
Fire escape equipment. Providing exterior access for the
fire brigade and rescue services.
Guaranteed Operation in All
Constructed in anodized aluminum alloy, stainless steel
and nylon, it requires no special maintenance. The ladder and its opening mechanism have
been tested at abnormally high temperatures and submitted to alternating wet and immediate
freeze-thaw cycles at -40C in a cold chamber. The opening mechanism continues to function
and the ladder is deployed normally in both these extremes of climate.
Simple and Quick
A simple quarter-turn of the operating handle located at
the level of one of the emergency exits and the ladder unfolds over its full height.
The unfolding action is dampened by stainless steel
compensating springs which also help in folding the ladder back after use. A side guard
rail located in the exterior upright is opened by hand to protect the user on his descent.
Options : The JOMY ladder may be opened by an electronic
drive with controls at each level and supplied by a fire alarm and detecting system or by
a 24 V permanent rechargeable battery.
Protection Against Misuse :
The control lever at the ground level may be removed and
the opening mechanism protected by a padlocked cover.This protection does not prevent the
ladder being deployed from the other levels. At its base the ladder may be located in an
"anti-climb" U channel over a height of about 3m. An alarm sensor and/or a
floodlight, triggered by the operation of the ladder may be installed.
The JOMY ladder has passed laboratory tests in the
Benelux countries, the Federal Republic of Germany, in the USA, in Japan... It is also
advised, or even recommended, by the emergency services in many countries.
