This ladder is rolled up with a plastic sheet separating the layers. This allows tangle free, rapid deployment. In an emergency, the ladder is simply clipped into eyebolts that are installed permanently underneath the window. With the option to purchase additional bolt fitting sets, the ladder can be used in optional locations depending upon the most suitable evacuation location. The bolt sets included with the EasyScape ladder are suitable for masonry but we do also offer the Easyscape ladder for Dormer windows which is supplied with timber bolts instead.

Fire escapes in the home should not mean installation of fixed, bulky ladders that detract from the appearance of your home, and now it doesn't. The EasyScape is a roll-away ladder that is not only easy to deploy but also, due to its design, tangle-free.
The EasyScape fire escape ladder can also be rolled up after use, ready for the next time it needs to be deployed. By having the ladder stored separately to the fixing bolts in the wall, the ladder does not take up room space or look as unattractive as a fixed installation.
Fixing and Deploying the EasyScape Ladder
1. Fixing the Eye Bolts
Fix the eye bolts underneath the chosen window sill in accordance with the installation instructions. Eye bolts may be fixed underneath several windows to allow the EasyScape to be used in multiple locations.
2. Attaching the EasyScape Ladder
Clip the relevant carabiner onto its corresponding eye bolt, each carabiner has a label attached to show which eye bolt it should be connected to.
3. Preparing for Deployment
Open the window and lift the EasyScape ladder onto the window sill, the ladder is now in position ready for deployment.
4. Deploying the Ladder
Pull the rope out of the toggle to free the ladder and then gently push the EasyScape out of the window, the ladder will now deploy by itself.
5. Begin the Descent
Check that the ladder has fully deployed and that the backing sheet does no obstruct the rungs, begin to climb down the ladder one person at a time.
6. PLEASE NOTE:
Ensure you refer to the user manual and installation guide before fitting and using the ladder, if you are unsure about the structural soundness of your wall please consult a builder before fitting.
Q. What type of fire escape ladder is suitable for use with small children and pets?
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 children, old enough to climb themselves, 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.
Q. Is a wall mounted escape ladder better than a floor mounted ladder?
Most customers prefer wall mounted fire escape ladders. However there are some situations where there is no option but to install a floor mounted fire escape ladder. There may not be enough room under the window or the wall may not be of a solid enough construction. With all fire escape ladders it is very important that the anchor points are solid.
Q. Which ladder is suitable for an attic window with a sloping roof outside?
Both the EasyScape and Rollo Roll-Out escape ladders are suitable for attic applications and can be used with a Velux or Dorma window. They have a fire retardant backing sheet that prevents the ladder getting tangled on deployment.
