A fire exit stair is a special kind of emergency exit, generally mounted to the outside of a building or occasionally inside but disconnect from the main areas of the building. It provides a method of escape in the occurrence of a fire or other emergency that makes the stairwells inside a building inaccessible. At one time, there were a very important aspect of fire safety for all new construction in urban areas; more in recent times; however, they have broken out of general use. Shadefab works closely with its customers to ensure that the manufacturing of fire exit stair that exceeds your expectations.
Working across all sectors, our manufacturers and fabricators present fire exit stairs in schools, hotels, leisure centres, and domestic properties and so on. Our range of designs span from single flight domestic fire escapes through to multi floored staircase structures that can take all careful planning and true engineering. A fire exit stair consists of a number of horizontal platforms, one at every story of a building, with ladders or stairs relating them. The platform and stairs are usually open steel gratings to prevent the build-ups of ice, snow, and leaves. Railings are usually provided on each of the levels, but as fire exit stairs are designed for emergency use only, these railings often do not need to meet the same standards as railings in other perspective.
The ladder from the lowest level of the fire escape to the ground may be fixed, but more commonly, it swings down on an axis or slides down along a track. The moveable designs allow dwellers to safely achieve the ground in the event of a fire but prevent persons from getting into the fire escape from the ground at other times. We are specialists in replacements that involve the removal of an old fire exit stair right through to the setting up of a new one.send enquiry
