EvaGuide / Public Evacuation System


EvaGuide is a public evacuation system with build-in navigation especially for high rise hotels. Hotel fires have big risk (high occupancy loads, sleeping facility, complex building, guest unfamiliar to building) and people give up evacuation because of eye and respiratory system irritation from smoke. Most of the casualties occur because of smoke.
Stand opens and guides people by showing the way out or warning to stay in room if corridor is filled with smoke. Mask automatically turns on when worn, sends location info to fire fighters, shows the safe exit with navigation lights, and supplies clean air.Transparent mask allows communication
