Building Evacuation System - High Rise Evacuations - Facility Management Product Release
The Frederick Tube evacuation system is 46-inches in diameter. The tube goes from specific floors to the ground. Carriers are inserted in the top of the tube, which evacuees sit inside. The carrier rides a cushion of air to the ground floor where passengers are unloaded. This system uses no electricity and can be used to evacuate a person approximately every six seconds. From a 100-story building, each carrier reaches the ground in approximately 40 seconds. It can be retrofitted to existing buildings.
