Easy to use and designed for optimum safety and comfort, the innovative IBEX+ has been especially developed to cope with more challenging terrain and to ascend or descend full spiraled stair cases and other tight or narrow stairways that other evacuation chairs would be unable to negotiate.
The IBEX+ launch will be part of a showcase of world-leading emergency stair-descent solutions on Evac+Chair’s stand number Q320 at the show, which runs from 19th to 21st June.
Visitors to the stand will receive a voucher entitling them to a free site survey for their business, via Evac+Chair International’s team of safety professionals. Onsite surveys are a vital tool in helping businesses to choose evacuation solutions that not only comply with building and health and safety regulations1, but are also tailored to suit their specific workforce, building and location requirements.
The Safety & Health Expo brings together over 13,800 professionals to the UK’s largest health and safety event. Gerard Wallace, Managing Director of Evac+Chair International, says: “Everyone attending The Safety & Health Expo is there to raise standards by seeking out best practice and the latest products and services, both individually and as a sector. The event is a great platform for our team to advise decision-makers on the latest equipment available and help to ensure that the solutions they specify for their buildings are fit for purpose and meet the needs of all the people who use them.”
As well as promoting the new IBEX+, Evac+Chair will be launching its whitepaper – The changing nature of risk. The paper will draw on the views of industry experts at its recent roundtable event and consider the factors that are driving closer scrutiny of evacuation practice and procedures in a diverse range of scenarios.
Evac+Chair is the world’s leading supplier and original manufacturer of evacuation chairs. With a wide range of Evacuation Products to suit any need, designed to help mobility-impaired people descend a staircase in any emergency with the helper neither needing to lift nor have great physical strength.
