This S-1-F type chute was developed
from our Model :S-1 for use mainly by fire brigades.
This chute is different from other types.
The chute has a zipper along its length at an interval (distance)
of 2 meters and the escaping persons can get out of the chute
from any nearest zipper.
The chute enables exit from a place where the height is not
same as the largest length of the chute.
If the chute is installed on the gondola of a snorkel vehicle
or on the deck of a fire engine with a ladder, the saved persons
within the gondola or on the deck can use the chute by nearest
zipper exit to the ground.
This means that it is not necessary to move repeatedly the
gondola or deck from the point of rescue down to the ground
every time the gondola or deck becomes full.
This is a very efficient method of rescue particularly when
the number of persons to be rescued is large.
The weight of the chute itself is about 1.4kg/m, and it is
possible to make maximum 50m long chute.
In the case of succession(continuous) use of the chute, the
chute itself will suffer no damage or trouble when a group
of 5 to 6 persons descend in the chute at an interval of about
1~2 second although the conditions may very depending on each
DESCENT & SAFETY
The chute is made in spiral form
in the left turn directions, so try to descend in it turning
the body in the left direction.
The speed of descent is about 2 meters or less per second
and the speed never exceeds the above limit. Therefore, no
shock is felt during the descent in the chute or at the time
when reaching the protecting cushion in the capsule at the
bottom of the chute.
This means that the chute assures the highest degree of safety
and no danger at all.
