Important Reasons Why You Should Have an Emergency Exit Staircase

March 17, 2020

In an event of a fire, crisis or disaster, having an emergency exit metal staircase or ladder can help you and your family get to safety, especially in a building with more than two floors.


Here are several reasons why you should have an emergency exit ladder or staircase in your building and some important things to consider:


Peace of Mind


Equipping your home or workplace with fire escape ladders and emergency exits will give you peace of mind knowing that you, your tenants and guests have a way of evacuating if a situation ever occurs. If you choose to install a ladder, you might also want to consider installing a metal cage around the ladder to prevent someone from falling. You’ll feel good knowing that you’re ensuring the safety of those around you.


First Responders


First responders such as firefighters, paramedics or police may also utilize emergency exits to enter a building during a disaster or crisis. If the doors on the lower floors are blocked, having a metal staircase will allow emergency teams to access higher floors and do their job quickly and efficiently.


Keep it Maintained


The emergency exit is not used as often as other staircases in your building, but it is extremely important that you keep your emergency exit stairs or ladder maintained. Over time, the condition of the metal staircase obviously won’t be as new as when you initially installed it, so having a technician occasionally come in for check-ups is important. By having your stairs regularly maintenance will prevent accidents from occurring. Also, ensure that all emergency exits are clear for a quick and safe exit.
