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.

Fire! o Each Minute Counts

The Zephinie Escape Chute
Pioneering High Rise Vertical Evacuation since 1968

 


A DRAMATIC PROBLEM:

EVACUATION OF Buildings IN THE EVENT OF FIRE.

 

 

Fire! o Each Minute Counts

A DRAMATIC PROBLEM:

EVACUATION OF Buildings IN THE EVENT OF FIRE.

In such an event, the first reflexes of the building's occupants at all floor levels is to escape. They rush toward exits which, in many cases are not in sufficient numbers or are difficult to reach.

Walls of flame and smoke suffocate them. They knock each other over and tread on one another to find by all means possible an exit,

Everyone recalls terrible images of people throwing themselves from the windows to prevent being burned alive.

FAST EVACUATION IN THE EVENT OF A FIRE IS THUS A TOP PRIORITY,

With the ZEC, a handicapped or crippled person will de six to ten times faster removed than by conventional means.

THE ZEC SYSTEM:
IMMEDIATE RESCUE.

This system is revolutionary when compared with conventional techniques.
The ZEC is the first system specifically designed for emergency
evacuation in high rise buildings.
In the event of fire it performs this function and thus allows free
circulation of the rescuers through the staircases which is vital for efficient fire fighting.

The ZEC allows evacuation within a minute of 25 to 35 able people of any stature.

Among people to be evacuated, some people may be handicapped, unconscious, even required to be stretcher-borne. Under such eventuality their evacuation will be assisted by an able person, exactly in the same manner as performed in the ZEC's hospital rescue practice.

Over a million uses of the ZEC have been documented:

1. Going down by the chute, an able person goes three times faster than by a staircase.

2. A handicapped or crippled person will go six to ten times faster than being evacuated by rescuers. So NO MATTER HOW HIGH IS A TOWER fitted with 25 ZECs, only ten minutes will be required to evacuate 7,500 people, while more than one hour would be required to do the same using normal exits.
