Our bariatric evacuation sledge is a very similar to our standard evacuation sledge. One of the benefits of the bariatric sledge is that the dual layer foam is widened to accommodate the larger person. The dual core foam is made up of two separate specifications, the base layer being a heavy duty construction to aid patients in transit on uneven surfaces and stairs.
The layer surface foam is to comfort the patient in transit. The webbing used runs the full length of the unit to aid in strength and mobility when moving the patient. The webbing has a breaking strength of over 2 tonnes. The evacuation sledge is stored in a heavy duty bag that can be hung on the wall. Instructions are sewn to the outside of the bag.
The use of a Bariatric Evacuation Sledge is an ideal solution in the evacuation of a building in the event of an emergency, providing a fire escape for those unable to descend the stairs on their own. This emergency evacuation sledge is similar to the Evacuation Sledge, but with a widened foam layer to make it suitable for bariatric users.
The Thorpe Mill Bariatric Evacuation Sledge is made with reinforced materials, and is designed to carry weight up to 2000kg. This depends on proper usage, and a risk assessment should be carried out to ensure the operators of the sledge are trained to move extremely heavy loads.
The bariatric evacuation sledge is a suitable fire emergency sledge when a situation arises. Stored in a heavy duty bag, the evacuation sledge can be hung on the wall when not in use, allowing it to be positioned in ideal places such as by the stairs.
The bariatric evacuation sledge is made up of two layers of foam:
These two layers offer protection and comfort. The wider construction of the bariatric sledge enables larger users to be assisted in comfort with no concerns over safety. Safety belts and a foot pocket secure the user when in position.
This emergency evacuation sledge is suitable for use when evacuating a building in the event of an emergency. Long handles enable one to two people to operate the evacuation sledge with ease, comfort and safety.
A fire evacuation sledge such as this is suitable for use on a spiralling staircase unlike many evacuation chairs. The base allows it to run over tiles, carpets and other floor types while protecting the patient from any discomfort.
