Evacu-Trac: Evacuation Chair

Call for Price

In the event of a fire or earthquake, elevators should not be used for the emergency evacuation of a building. In this situation, people with limited mobility may be trapped or have to wait for a prolonged time in an area of refuge. The Evacu-Trac has been engineered and rigorously tested to meet the most rigorous demands of an emergency evacuation chair.

The evacuation chair by Garaventa is designed with the operator and passenger in mind. The unit should be kept in any multi-story building where disabled people live, work, or visit. This easy-to-use evacuation device is equipped with many safety features and most importantly, provides people with limited mobility an equal opportunity for escape in an emergency. Some features are listed below:

  • The safest evacuation chair
  • One-person operation
  • Lower transfer height
  • Easy to operate
  • Speed governor
  • Fast deployment
  • Low center of gravity

Description

Easy to Set Up and Load Passenger into the Emergency Evacuation Chair

The Garaventa Evacu-Trac is lightweight, compact, and sets up in seconds. The open sides of the Evacu-Trac are designed for ease of transfer from a wheelchair. This can often be done without assistance. Once the passenger is positioned in the Evacu-Trac, Velcro straps are wrapped securely around the passenger’s torso and lower legs. The passenger is then wheeled to the stairway for the descent.

 

Failsafe Brake and Speed Governor Control the Descent

The Evacu-Trac is completely stable and self-supporting on flat surfaces and stairs. Its patented speed governor and braking system allow a small attendant to easily evacuate a larger person securely and maintain full control of the speed of descent. The durable rubber tracks firmly grip the stairs and the safety brake can stop the unit on the stairs if necessary. The Evacu-Trac is equipped with a sling seat, three safety straps, and a deep foot pocket for passenger safety and comfort.
