All buildings require access and evacuation solutions so that they are accessible to all.
Particularly with Government sites, you never know who is likely to visit from day to day. Therefore, the model that takes the largest range of powered and manual wheelchairs is naturally the best choice. This will ensure access and evacuation to the largest number, and most diverse group of people. It essentially provides the best solution for an unpredictable access or evacuation scenario.
If this is not suitable because of the stairs and landings, then look to other models. Often, buildings have staircases that are spiralised, flared or narrow and perhaps are concrete, carpeted, or tiled. All these factors can have a bearing on the most appropriate choice of evacuation and access equipment.
We have provided famous landmarks, such as Big Ben, with solutions to very difficult staircases. The example here being, steep, spiral, concrete, and very high up. It was not easy, but they now have a chair that can carry a person of reduced mobility safely down the staircase in an emergency. This could prove to be a lifesaving measure.
We have supplied other Government sites and offered real advice, considering a wider selection of options that are available. Often a standard manual evacuation chair, will just not be suitable at all.
