Life Channel Protector

Fire access is a dedicated passage for firefighters to use to rescue and evacuate people in fire disaster or other dangers.Because it can save people’s life in emergencies,so we also call it ‘life channel’.But fire access occupancy is very serious in many places,it would delay the rescue and endangering the lives of many people.‘Life Channel Protector’ is a special lifting colume to prevent people from staying in fire access,let fire access smooth at the critical moment.
