Axel Thoms Lebensrettungseinrichtungen GmbH – Escape Ladders

The Modum Escape ladder provides an elegant solution for self-rescue in case of emergency. The Modum Escape ladder can be used to leave the building in case of fire. The Modum Escape ladder can as well serve as a “secret” emergency exit, which is not visible from the outside, in case of burglary / intrusion. The compact dimensions of the ladder in its closed condition prevent it from being perceived as a ladder and rather considered to be a rain pipe. Dimensions closed: 72 mm x 47 mm. Dimensions opened: 398 mm x 47 mm. Moreover, the Modum Escape ladder can be adapted to the facade (multi-colored, if necessary).
