The Direct Access Evacuation Chair is lightweight and intuitive in its operation, allowing it to provide safe, dignified egress for mobility-impaired users who could find stairs a safety barrier.

Designed and built in Germany, the Direct Access Evacuation Chair is engineered for safety and reliability. In the event of an emergency, users must be able to rely on the performance of their life safety products.

The high visibility colour scheme and intuitive decals are easily identifiable in an emergency and have a protective fire-retardant dust cover and a compact storage design.

Direct Access has chosen to partner with Live Evacuation, an organisation which shares our values, as accessibility is the heart of what they do.

Evacuation Chair Training

Direct Access’s fully inclusive training course enables operators or responders to gain a complete understanding of the Evacuation Chair use and how to ensure the safety and comfort of the evacuee. The physical use of the chair is only one aspect of a safe and dignified evacuation of a person with mobility issues. The Direct Access Training course has been designed to ensure operators and businesses are able to meet their legal and socially responsible obligations.

Evacuation Site Survey

The Direct Access Evacuation site survey ensures the correct emergency evacuation solution is specified. Taking into account the building layout, existing emergency procedure, and where appropriate the mobility needs of the intended users of the Direct Access Chairs, the detailed post-survey report will highlight the areas of attention and suggest solutions. The team at Direct Access pride ourselves on providing a solution not just selling a product.

Product Service & Maintenance

Direct Access is a fully inclusive company and has an 86% disabled workforce. As part of our commitments to the community we serve, Direct Access employs a network of disabled field-based service engineers.

Ensuring your Direct Access chair is always ready for use is vital in any robust evacuation strategy. Direct Access suggests that all evacuation equipment is regularly serviced in lines with the PUWER Regulations 1998 (Provision and Use of Works Equipment Regulations). Not only does this ensure the product is ready to use, it extends the life span of your investment and promotes confidence in any user that might be called upon to use the chair.

Direct Access will ensure an annual plan is implemented together with full tracking of works and certification of work completed.
