Emergency Curtains / curtain

Emergency Curtains
Emergency Curtains

When a building catches fire, in some emergency cases people have to escape through a window with tools. However, it's always hard to find a rope which is long and firm enough to climb down with, and it’s really time-consuming to find something like the sheet and tie it into a string.

Emergency Curtains are designed to solve this problem.The curtains are made of a new kind of strong material, and there are slots which can be easily torn apart. After tearing the slots, it turns into an extremely firm life-saving rope. With its special structure, Emergency Curtains can assist people to escape quickly and safely.
