zigzag effect. At the rear of each zigzag is an exit hatch designed to allow evacuees
to exit through any section.

for each section and the overall chute column. Each section is interconnected with
stainless steel connectors providing additional strength. The netted chute has a
dead weight capacity of 2 ton.

height evacuation point. This chute is designed to operate at varying heights for
vessels with changes in ballast levels or locations prone to high wave conditions.
Vertical Three Layered Escape Chute:
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.
Layer 1-Outside Layer-Flameproof Layer is there to protect you from flames and radiated
heat, this layer can withstand a constant temperature of 660 Deg “C”, and starts
to melt at 800 Deg “C”.
Layer 2: The Middle Layer - Breaking Layer- This layer has a series of stainless
steel coiled springs sewn into the material, these springs have a small diameter.
As you travel through them they restrict you, but not hold you. The chute user
will place pressure on the chute’s interior wall with their legs and arms, the more
pressure they apply, the more they slow, less pressure and they will speed up.
Layer 3: The Inner Layer - Support Layer - This is the layer that is connected to
the storage/deployment device, and holds the chute in place. It can withstand the
dead weight load of 5 tons.

and lower yourself to waist level , spread your legs, and slowly lower yourself fully
into the chute. By applying and releasing pressure against the interior wall of
the chute, with your arms and legs, You control the speed of decent.
