Ya-Chu, Chang
Ya-Chu, Chang

Disaster is unpredictable, that’s why having several ways to exit is very important. For example, When a fire occurs, we cannot sure all escape routes are safe. So we always need a plan B. Window-ladder is our new solution for escape the disaster.
Normally, Window-ladder is a common window, however, when disaster happens, We can transform Window-ladder into ladders in very short time. The ladders can lead people escape easily and intuitively. This design provides another way to save our life in very difficult time.
