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.

Nuclear Power Plants:
In a high-risk area, such as the sodium thermal exchanger of the Marcoule's Super Phoenix power plant, the ZEC is used as a normal vertical transportation, at the end of the routine check-up path, to shorten unnecessary human presence in a dangerous location.
This example can eventually apply to hundreds of similar uses in the Chemical industry, Steel Industry, etc.
2. - Bridge Crane, Tower Crane, Harbor Crane,  etc.

Bridge Crane, Tower Crane, etc. In highly socially developed countries, regulations ask for an alternative means of evacuation for crane operators. The ZEC offers incomparable superior service, compared to the chains and ladders.

The picture shows the ZEC during the tests on a bridge crane of the old Renault factory of Boulogne Billancour, France. (1977)
 
3. - Ammunition Plants and similar location
Ammunition Plants and similar locations involving potential explosive dangers.
A special installation concept, first designed by Gerard Zephinie for the European Space Agency's Rocket Launching Pad in Guyana (1977), can be applied to work in places where operators must clear, and reach a safe place in less than 3 seconds.
 
4. - Space Rocket Launching Pads

5. - Textile Wet Curtain Technology
The Textile Wet Curtain protection is another little known Technology, actually included in the ZEC special protection in high-risk industrial environments.
Two hour fire protection of an escape route can be reached using an unfolding installation of the ZEC-SE type with the advantage of being completely concealed when not in use.

6. - Portable light ZEC systems

Portable light ZEC systems have been specially designed to provide worker's evacuation in construction site and maintenance operations.

7. - Giant mining and dirt moving equipment
