Product Overview

This Axel Thoms Underfloor Escape Chute version allows rapid escape from walkways and scaffolds in the case of fire or any other emergency. The evacuation chute is fitted in the floor of a walkway or in scaffold boarding and is covered with a lid when not in use. When used on construction sites, the length of the chute can be easily adapted to the height of the scaffolding at each stage of construction by activating different opening points along the chute.

The chute contains an internal spiral, offering safe descent at a controlled speed. It is easily deployed in seconds. The Axel Thoms Underfloor Escape Chute is available from 4 to 120 metres height above ground.

The Axel Thoms Underfloor Escape Chute is manufactured in Germany with fire-retardant fabrics and high-strength, load-bearing belts to allow a load of 14,500kg to ensure the safety of users when escaping, for example, from fires. The chute is TÜV Certified and guaranteed for 15 years when serviced annually by our specialist engineers.

Construction

Securely Fitted Base Frame

The Base Frame is specially constructed and bespoke for each installation, determined by the free site survey, securely anchoring the Axel Thoms Underfloor Escape Chute to the structure of your building. For underfloor installation the Base Frame also takes the roll of the Entrance Frame.

Fully Enclosed Entrance

To help prevent further panic in an emergency the Entrance Frame is totally enclosed by a visual cover which, combined with the inner spiral design, does not allow users to realise the actual height they are evacuating from.

TÜV Tested & Approved

TÜV are an international testing facility specialising in certifications, qualifications, training and consultancy services. TÜV test products and services in relation to their compliance with regulations and help to standardise certification throughout the international community.

Load-Bearing Belts

Underneath the protective outer layer a 5 specially designed load-bearing belts, providing the core strength of the EvacChute. Due to the design and construction of the EvacChute, centred around these belts, loads of 14,500kg are easily supported allowing multiple people to evacuate at the same time without worry.

Protective Outer Layer

The Protective Outer Layer of the Axel Thoms Underfloor Escape Chute is constructed from DIN 4102 class B1 flame-retardant fabric as standard but can optionally be upgraded to non-flammable DIN 4102 class A2 material for extra protection during evacuation.

DIN 4102 Combustibility Classes

Closely related to BS 476, DIN 4102 is a German standard for the testing of passive fire protection systems, or their component materials, for the degree of flammability and combustibility. The results of testing that complies with DIN 4102 are split into 5 categories: B3 to B1 followed by A2 and A1, with B3 being the most flammable and A1 being the least.

Internal Spiral

The inside of an Axel Thoms Underfloor Escape Chute features a spiral structure at a specific angle and made from specially chosen material to provide an average descent speed of 2m/s. Children, disabled persons, pregnant women, and even unconscious persons can use an Axel Thoms Underfloor Escape Chute as neither technique nor weight will have a significant impact on the speed of descent.

15 Year Guarantee

Due to the life-saving nature of the Axel Thoms Underfloor Escape Chute every purchase requires a free site survey, every component is manufactured to the highest standards, and every system is installed and maintained annually by our specialist engineers. Axel Thoms Underfloor Escape Chute are so confident in their product that all systems are guaranteed for a full 15 years.

Exit Capsule

At the bottom of the Axel Thoms Underfloor Escape Chute is an Exit Capsule, designed to provide further stability to the Axel Thoms Underfloor Escape Chute and help ensure correct deployment. The Exit Capsule allows for a safer termination of descent than landing directly onto the floor, which may be dangerous due to debris or other hazards caused by the emergency, while the Holding Handles and wide hatch ensure all occupants can quickly and smoothly exit the EvacChute.
