Life Ladder
Life Ladder

When the building is on fire, people are often trapped in the house and died finally of smoke and heat. The Life Ladder is a new type of automatic wrapped hinge ladder set beside building windows, with a shell on it. The shell opens automatically when the fire alarm is on, and the wrapped hinge ladder is let down to the top of next one. Therefore, all ladders are connected together end by end, down to ground. People living in any floor can climb down to ground to escape by them.
