Counter Balanced Fire Escape Stairs
We are one of the very few companies in the world to engineer, design, build and install these very special multi-story building external emergency exit systems. We have a long track record in this field primarily developed from decades of rebuilding existing systems as well as retrofitting buildings with these to meet the 2012 International Building Code.
The code states:
Location – Where located on the front of the building and where projecting beyond the building line, the lowest landing shall not be less than 7 feet (2134 mm) or more than 12 feet (3658 mm) above grade, and shall be equipped with a counterbalanced stairway to the street. In alleyways and thoroughfares less than 30 feet (9144 mm) wide, the clearance under the lowest landing shall not be less than 12 feet (3658 mm).
We have been very busy with new installations as this is now a mandatory upgrade whenever a building is sold, has a change of use or a major renovation. Each application is unique and requires special attention to detail.
We take the worry and trouble away from you and build an expert system, meeting the codes, that operates perfectly for many many years to come.
