Evac+Chair is launching a new range of evacuation chairs, which enhances passenger safety and comfort and further demonstrates the brand’s commitment to improving building safety for all. 

The new MK5 range, which launches on 5th October 2020, has been designed and manufactured in the United Kingdom, at Evac+Chair’s new headquarters in the West Midlands. The world leader in safe emergency evacuation has coupled its 35 years of experience with customer insight to enhance its core platform of products. The MK5 range will retain the iconic blue and yellow colourways that Evac+Chair has become synonymous for, and the enhancements will apply to the 300H, 500H and 600H series. The new features and benefits include:

  • Double handed grip – for enhanced user operation.
  • Anti-slip grip – improves stability and operation.
  • Redesigned hammock and backrest – for greater passenger comfort.
  • Upgraded kickstand with repositioned wheels – allows weight to be distributed more evenly and enhances passenger comfort.
  • Enhanced safety belt – sewn directly into the hammock to reduce wear and tear.
  • Onboard user instructions – easy to follow in times of emergency.

Evac+Chair is trusted and relied upon in emergency situations to assist in saving people’s lives, and the brand is dedicated to offering emergency evacuation for everyone.

“ Safe evacuation for everyone is our key priority, and, over the last 35 years, we have developed our chair and created the optimum design. However, we are committed to evolving our products and ensuring we are providing the mobility impaired with the best possible means to evacuate a building safely, in the event of an emergency”, says Ges Wallace, managing director, Evac+Chair International.

“The MK5 range ensures a smooth and safe stairway descent for passengers and operators in any building, whatever its design. Insight from our customers and distributors is incredibly valuable for our R&D team and our ongoing innovation at Evac+Chair.”

The 300H series is the most popular single-person operation evacuation chair in Evac+Chair’s range. The 500H series has been designed for an increased payload capacity of 227kg, which enables passengers of any build to be effortlessly evacuated in an emergency. The 600H series has been designed to ascend and descend stairways, so offers a universal solution for any situation.
