The Escape Rescue Lite System comes with two solid cabins folded one into the other in a "nesting array configuration." Like the Standard Escape Rescue System, the Lite System is installed on the roof and the system is unobtrusive and "invisible" from the ground. Upon deployment, the system lowers the array to the ground. It then unfolds allowing response teams to enter the cabins and to be transported to the focus of the emergency.
The cabins travel upwards and stop opposite two elevated floors, enabling 30 people to enter the cabins through specially configured exit windows simultaneously. The cabins are then lowered to the ground and evacuees exit as they refold. The system repeats this cycle, transporting responders up and into the building and evacuating tenants as required.
The Escape Rescue Lite System is lighter and more compact than the standard Escape Rescue System and requires less space for installation and storage.
Its smaller capacity and lighter configuration makes the Escape Rescue Lite System perfectly suitable for residential buildings and for lower capacity commercial sites, with fewer occupants per floor.
