Ladder Window / Survival equipment

Ladder Window
Ladder Window

In many developing countries, some residents usually install iron anti-theft windows which can protect people's property and life safety. But in the event of a fire, these windows will become an obstacle for people to escape and be rescued. Ladder Window figures out a new solution. When there is an emergency, the ladder and railing attached to the Windows will unfold and the lids of the Windows will open. People in the building can escape by climbing over glazed windows and taking the stairs. It turns a window that would have prevented an escape into an escape aid.
