Additional Information

In an emergency, the hooks of the ladder are placed over the window sill and the chain is lowered out of the window. The escape ladder is then ready for for your descent. Distance pieces fixed on a number of rungs will keep your feet safely off the wall.

The ladder deploys tangle-free and includes 5 pairs of distance pieces for the 14 ft ladders, or 8 pairs for the 23 foot and 15 pairs for the 45 foot ladders. The distance pieces are screwed on by the customer in positions best suited for the building in question.

Please note that a minimum window opening width of 13" (33cm) is required for the installation of this ladder.

The Saf-Escape ladder selection covers most wall thickness ranges. The hooks come in three sizes to fit up to 10 inch, 10 to 14 inch and 14 to 18 inch wall thickness. However, excessive sill overhangs (more than 3 inches) might lead to an incorrect fit of the ladder. If in doubt, please contact us.

Choosing the right hook size

Measure your wall thickness and choose the adequate hook size

How do I measure my wall thickness
?

 

  1. Measure distance B - the distance from the inside to the outside of the sill.
  2. Measure distance C & D - the overhangs of your window sill at each side of the wall.
  3. Subtract C & D from B - this will give you your wall thickness (measurement E).
  4. Check measurement A - if this measurement is more than 30mm, the ladder may not fit correctly, please call us for more information.
  5. If you need to contact us for help with your measurements please make a note of measurements F (external window sill height) & G (internal window sill height) along with the previous measurements - we will use these measurements to draw a diagram of your window and test the three different hook sizes against it.

Installation Instructions
Please note: Immediately after purchase the ladder needs to be deployed and the distance pieces fitted, as per the instructions included with your ladder.

Important: When you are happy with the placement of the distance pieces, ensuring that they are placed above and below any windows to avoid the window being broken during use, stand on the bottom rung of the ladder to ensure the wall is strong enough.

  • Place box with escape ladder underneath the window.
  • Place hooks over the entire window sill/ledge so that the hooks are touching both the outside and inside wall. The chain should be on outside with distance pieces facing the outside wall.
  • Lower the ladder out of the window section by section. Ensure that the chain does not tangle.
  • After use: Pull the ladder back into the room and check the ladder for damage. If any damage is noted please replace the ladder immediately. Place the end of the ladder into box first and layer chain into box, ensuring that the chain does not tangle. Place the hooks in the box last.
FAQs (4)

Q. Is the Saf-Escape suitable for a Velux window?

A. We would not recommend this ladder for a Velux window application. The Rollo Roll-Out ladder and the EasyScape ladder are better suited. They have a fire retardant backing that enables them to be deployed from the Velux window without tangling.

Q. What type of fire escape ladder is suitable for use with small children and pets?

A. To be able to carry small children and pets down an escape ladder you would require a child harness or pet harness. These harnesses are suitable for use with all the escape ladders. The escape ladder that is most suitable for use with small children is the externally fixed Saffold ladder. If you would like a portable fire escape ladder suitable for children the X-It ladder offers the most stability. The Amigo ladder is very easy to deploy for children and has strong, wide steps, which help to descend safely.

Q. What can I do if I am unsure which Saf-Escape hook size I need after taking all the measurements?

A. If you are unsure which hook size you require because one measurement may be more than indicated on the diagram, please e-mail us your dimensions.

Q. Can the Saf-Escape ladder be fixed to a window where there is no internal window sill?

A. Yes, the design of the Saf-Escape ladder does not require any sill to attach to. The hooks anchor on the wall below the sill on both the internal and external wall.

Hard to know for sure until we've had to use it, which I hope we never do! It seems OK for the job - very bulky but I guess that is necessary and it just about fits under the bed. I do have a question (which I've emailed customer support) about getting a rope or something to accompany it, because that feels quite necessary if sending a child down it.

as it said on the tin It does tie itself in knots so needs laying out on the floor before deploying out the window. Glad I've played with it at my leisure.

I couldnt get the windowledge clamp to fit on a 10" wide ledge. I had to make up floor bolts and chuck the clamp away.

Tiny criticism with the ladder that I received - it has screw-on stand-off legs for when it's deployed. They have to be screwed in prior to use but the screws had jammed into the legs so hard it took me half an hour to get them free and a lot of effort. I imagine some elderly customers might find this impossible. Otherwise fine :o)

Not sure why there are not enough distance pieces for every rung of the ladder. I have simply fixed them on every other rung to spread them out. Comment from Safelincs: Distance pieces are not required for every rung. There are enough distance pieces for every third rung supplied with the ladder.
