The Direct Access Evacuation chair allows the safe and timely evacuation of people with mobility impairments (either permanent or temporary) during an emergency situation. Designed and built in Germany to the highest standard, the Direct Access Evacuation chair can always be relied upon.
Evacuation Chair Training
Evacuation equipment is most effective when used by someone familiar and trained in how to use it properly.
Direct Access’ fully inclusive training course enables operators or responders to gain a complete understanding of 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.

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.
Direct Access are a fully inclusive company and boast an 80% disabled work force. 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 suggest 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.
