A simple Escape System

The construction of the chute helps to protect the evacuees from heat and fire and is used  to deliver evacuees to safety with very little training. This is sometimes difficult or impossible using traditional rescue equipment.


Three way Protection—The escape chute consists of three layers. The outer layer is of a material that will not ignite.  The middle layer helps to regulate the speed of decent, inner layer reduces friction.









Offshore &Onshore Derrickman Escape Chute Systems

Provides rapid vertical evacuation from Derrick Towers in an emergency situation.

Totally enclosed and offering heat protection from radiated heat flux.  The RSSDM10 Vertical Three Layered Escape Chute is a rapid and safe method of evacuating from heights to deck level.

Box section epoxy painted frame designed to accommodate the drop in chute container


Set of Safety Handrails and Access Gate – Optional


Three Layered Vertical Escape Chute designed to support a dead weight of 2 – ton and heat resistant to 600 degrees and melting point of 800 degrees.  Chute length varies dependent on application, however in all cases a 1 x meter air gap is required for evacuees to exit.


Light weight chute container with lower trap door and hinged lid, hydraulic dampened arms, based on 115ft of escape chute. The chute container would need to be 56” in height excluding the lid.


Width and depth is yet to be determined, but the minimum width requirement is 29” as the chute aperture is 25” and 2” required on all sides of the chute hole for support.


In all cases design criteria is agreed with the customer and drawings issued for approval prior to manufacturing.


The system can be supplied with purpose built safety handrails and access gate, deployment mechanism and chute container.


Technical, Testing and Individual Component Certification, Training and Manuals:


In all cases full testing is carried out ensuring that the escape chute system performs correctly, All components will be supplied with certification, covering: Escape Chute, frame Assembly and Mechanical Deployment device.
