"EVAC-Blitz" - Safety system for fast and secure evacuation of people from high buildings (2002)


Fast and safe evacuation methods from high buildings are not just been a relevant topic since the 11th of September. Because of new record buildings that are higher and higher standard escape routes like stairs and elevators are coming to their limits.



The innovative EVAC-Blitz-system provides a safe, mounted on the outside of the building (important in the case of fire) and easy to handle solution to evacuate high buildings in short time. Unfolding beams and platforms provide the starting points for people, who are put into harnesses and hooked into a rope that is linked to the beam and rolled down to the ground. Then the person slides down the rope into a cushion on the ground where the harness is hooked off automatically and the person can be evacuate or run into safety.
