Gyro Ladder / Lifesaving Ladder

Gyro Ladder
Gyro Ladder

A Gyro Ladder is an emergency escape ladder for ships or ferries. When ferries sink, the most difficult challenge for passengers is that they cannot reach the exit because the ships turn 180 degree inward and exits are above of their head. Passengers have to climb up to exit like a vertical cliff. At this emergent situation, a Gyro ladder automatically extends and let passenger to climb up to the exit doors.
