Fire Escape Ladder / Lifesaving Ladder

Fire Escape Ladder
Fire Escape Ladder

This is a fast-deformable fire escape ladder that provides a special escape route in the event of a fire. The product is usually an ordinary balcony railing, and one side of the railing is a rotating shaft inclined downward 45 °. When a fire is encountered, as long as the emergency button on the other side is pressed, the switch pops open, and the railing is pushed outward. The railing folds and rotates along the axis, turning into a fire-resisting life ladder that continues down to the ground. People trapped can climb down the fire escape and reach the ground safely and quickly.
