1. Control

It can be operated intuitively and can be used by any person in an emergency in no time at all.

2. Motor winch

The winch lowers the evacuation unit incl. rescue chute in a controlled but rapid manner, so that the system is ready for use in a few seconds, even if the power supply fails.

3. Evacuation chute

Spiral geometry of the chute allows a fixed maximum user sliding speed to reduce the risk of injury. Stainless steel stabilising rings connected to a hose and additional mesh.

4. Life rafts

Opening of the rafts, one after the other or synchronously as required. Up to 4 life rafts can be installed in standard systems.

5. Landing platform

The landing platform is lowered into the water together along with the chute and life rafts in case of an emergency. At contact with water the landing platform inflates within 30 seconds

6. Evacuation Body

Structurally-reinforced enclosure; insulated according to fire protection class A60

World's fastest and most efficient evacuation chute

  • Spiral geometry for fixed maximum sliding speed
  • Evacuation of injured or unconscious crew member possible
  • Fully enclosed evacuation chute with microclimate (protection against cold, heat, stress reduction
  • Evacuation independent of clothing
  • The chute is stabilised by stainless steel rings and additional mesh fabric

Chute lengthup to 150 m

Rescue chute made of highly durable aramid. Delivery up to a length of 150 m. Colour-coded segments provide guidance for controlled descent into the life raft.

Fire-resistant up to +480 ° C

Fire-resistant chute material protects against burns during use, the enclosure is fully insulated against heat.
