Product Overview

The EVAC+CHAIR Emergency Evacuation Chair enables evacuation of less mobile persons in emergency situations down a flight of stairs. This can be achieved with only a single operator.

The chair protects the person in the chair with safety buckles, an optional forehead restraint, and a sling-style seat that ensures the user is sat back in the chair and cannot be tipped forward. The Emergency Evacuation Chair's wheels are supported by specially designed friction belts which ensure the chair does not slip or accelerate too rapidly while descending a flight of stairs. The distribution of the chair's weight and load ensures that the descent is smooth and comfortable for both the user and the operator.

  • Provided with photoluminescent signs as well as hooks for wall mounting
  • The supplied dust cover helps to protect the evacuation chair
  • User manual and CD supplied with the chair to provide operator guidance
  • Anti-scratch powder coated finish
  • Padded material covers the chair's leg and back bars for user comfort

Legislation Requirements

As well as providing an ethical solution to aid users in evacuation, the Evac+Chair also helps businesses meet many current legislation requirements, such as:

  • Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 - Means of escape
  • Building Regulations Parts B and M - Building use and access
  • BS5588-8:1999 - Providing disabled people with measures to be assisted in an emergency
  • Equality Act 2009 - Ensuring that disabled people are not at a disadvantage compared to those that are not disabled
  • DDA (Disability Discrimination Act) - Providing adequate access and facilities for any disabled person who may enter a building

Evac+Chairs are Class I Medical Devices with their installation and use regulated under the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 (PUWER). Employers, self-employed people, and those employed to supervise or manage equipment are responsible for ensuring that a reasonable amount of staff are adequately trained to use Evac+Chairs safely, that the chairs are annually serviced by a qualified engineer, and that they are regularly inspected by a competent worker.

FAQs (10)

Q. How do I get the person from their desk to the stairs?

A. In the event of an emergency / evacuation the Evac+Chair should be taken by a trained member of staff to the location of the intended user of the Evac+Chair. This person can either self-transfer to the Evac+Chair or be assisted as required. The Evac+Chair can then be moved along the corridor / floor to the stairway for downwards evacuation. Having a Comfy Seat fitted to your Evac+Chair aids the transfer into the chair. If assistance with transferring onto the Evac+Chair is required a second member of staff will need to assist.

Q. Are Evac+Chairs required?

A. Yes, there is a legal obligation to ensure that all employees and the general public are able to safely evacuate your building in the event of a fire. Evac+Chair is one way to meet this obligation.

Q. Who provides service for my Evac+Chair?

A. Safelincs can carry out your service, which will ensure that you are maintaining your Evac+Chair in accordance with the Class 1 Medical Device guidelines. Your chair should be serviced and maintained annually to ensure that it operates safely. A monthly in-house check should also be carried out.

Q. Where should I store my Evac+Chair?

A. The Evac+Chair needs to be in plain sight of all building occupants. The Evac+Chair is supplied with 2 wall mounting hooks to enable the chair to be located in the most appropriate area. Additionally, the bright yellow branded cover that is supplied with the Evac+Chair should ensure that once in position, the chair remains in focus.

Q. How can I stop the chair if I’ve already started going down stairs?

A. By pushing down on the handles and stopping your own downward progress will stop the descent of the Evac+Chair. Training is vital to ensure that you know how to use the Evac+Chair safely and with confidence in the event of a fire.

Q. How much does the Evac+Chair weigh?

A. 300H 9.5kg
300H AMB 10.5kg
600H 11.0kg
Ibex 14.5kg

Q. Can the chair go up stairs?

A. Yes, in the case of 600H and Ibex, but no for the 300H.

Q. How many operators are necessary?

A. The 300H model is a single person operation chair, whereas the 600H and Ibex Transeat are both 2-person operation.

Q. Is there a minimum age or weight for the Evac+Chairs?

A. No, the Evac+Chairs are suitable for children (not babies or small toddlers that can be carried) as they come with patient restraints to keep the user secure in the chair while in motion, especially, when descending stairs. It is a recommendation from the manufacturer that when you purchase an Evac+Chair for a specific child user that adding a comfy Seat (ECCHAIRSEA) would be beneficial as the hammock style seat can be quite uncomfortable for younger users.

Q. How strong do I need to be to operate the Evac+Chair?

A. Because the chair operates on via friction belts, strength is less of a concern than being properly trained. Adding a person's weight will result in a downwards movement without lifting. When using the chair to transport someone downstairs, it is important to note that you should be pushing down towards your toes, not pulling back or pushing forwards as with a shopping trolley.

Product appeared good but not suitable for the purpose When selling this item it may be worth asking people for the width of their stair. This item was required for a football stadium and the width of the stairs are not standard size, however there is no indication that this would not be suitable for our use. The service was good and you did kindly arrange for a refund.
