People that were trapped above the floor levels impacted  could have been evacuated by only one set of four or five units of ZEC-EM, remaining operative over 25, in few minutes.
The Zephinie   Escape Chute (ZEC) 
can operate over 100 floors.  
Can evacuate up 1000 persons per minute, including handicapped ,  injured persons with the same average escape speed.
Ignorance or bad will
can't invalidate demonstrable 
facts.

High Rise Buildings
Historic Archives  02 of the Zephinie Vertical Escape Chute Technology

1974

Official and public tests were performed in France, Belgium, England and the USA

During 1974, over 40,270  (1973 not included)  International tests of the Evacuation Verticale Zephinie (EVZ) were performed up to the 330 ft height of in an International Press Relation demonstration on March 20th, 1974.  
 
In the USA, the president of the Milliken Corporation personally tested the EVZ.
 
The French inventor, Gerard Zephinie opted to develop the engineering standards of the new technology prior to export of the product.
As chief engineer of the project, he knew that the apparent simplicity could possibly mislead the business oriented community in performing an unsafe installation of the EVZ. 

 The EVZ company was acclaimed by millions, however the company has not financial recourses to invest in the EVZ application engineering standards definition.
Zephinie exchanged license right with an Engineering company in Barcelona, Spain for the labor of 3,000 hours of engineers and metal shop.
 
Zephinie determined 11 installation type supports and the control procedure of EVZ technology in nine months.
 
All applications were backed by mathematical calculus and tests were performed by the Laboratorio de Elasticidad y Resistencia de Material, Escuela Tecnica de Ingeneros de Barcelona, Spain.
 
Later, in 1977, Millikan, as other companies grew weary of the fight against the New York City special interest group blockade and dropped out.
 
The Rhor Corporation asked for exclusive US rights to use the EVZ for the Monorail train and tests were performed in Rhor facilities in San Diego, California USA.
 
The Six-flags Corporation also asked for exclusivity for the US amusement market.
 

Below is the archived document of the international test of the ZEC-EVZ technology performed during the year 1974.
