FastExit Escape System
The potential threat of a fire affects every household and workplace in the country. For this reason, there are strict fire regulations requiring either smoke alarms and/or sprinkler systems, as well as exit plans and emergency doors in commercial or residential structures.
However when a building is on fire, intense heat and toxic smoke can fill an entire house within minutes, blocking pre-planned exit routes and even trapping individuals as they attempt to get out through learned escape paths. For this reason, firefighters recommend evacuation through the nearest exit - most often a window.
Yet the simple act of opening a window can prove difficult for individuals such as young children, the elderly, the physically challenged, or care givers, especially when they are stricken with terror, confusion, and panic in a life threatening fire.
Because every second is critical, the ability to open a window quickly can be the difference between life and death.
FASTEXIT Escape System: Unique Features & Benefits:
The FASTEXIT Escape System is a product which can be easily installed as a new or replacement window on most first floor window locations. The result is an easy-to-operate emergency exit which opens without any special effort or knowledge.
FASTEXIT gives equal advantage to the young or old, weak or strong, to escape a life-threatening situation. FASTEXIT is simple enough to enable young children and the physically challenged to open the window by simply pulling down on the red anodized pendant. This automatically unlocks and lifts the window, allowing the individual to quickly get out.
The FASTEXIT is designed to play a major role in a family's fire exit plan by supplementing quality smoke and heat detectors. Most importantly, it complies with and complements the long-standing procedures of firefighters across the nation.
The FastExit Escape System is a "Power Window Opener" which consists of a FastExit Escape unit and a specially modified single hung window. The window installs just like any other window. The power unit mounts with screws just above the top window trim and is connected to the bottom sash and lock with stainless steel aircraft cable. After the window is installed, the FASTEXIT power unit only takes about 30 minutes to install by an experienced installer.
Operation of this fire-safety device is accomplished by simply pulling down on the chain with the red anodized pendant. This releases a special hammer which punctures a CO2 cartridge releasing high pressure CO2 gas into the power tube (cable cylinder) where a powerful lifting force is generated on the lift cables, unlocking and opening the window.
The FASTEXIT's attractive design easily hides behind most curtains and blends in with almost any window setting. The system does not interfere with normal operation of the window, allowing it to be unlocked and opened freely on a day-to-day basis. Because it is a totally manual system, random heat or smoke will not accidentally trigger the system.
Easy to maintain, the FASTEXIT has a punctured cylinder indicator which tells at a glance the status of the CO2 bottle. Likewise, the red and green indicators are revealed by a hole in the cover for a reliable indication of whether the unit is "cocked".
FASTEXIT Benefits Include:
