Escape from a Dangerous House Fire with This Strong, Durable Ladder
Fire is a serious threat to every household; it can strike anywhere, any time. The frightening truth is that in 2005, there were nearly 381,000 home fires in the U.S., resulting in over 16,000 casualties. Because of the very real threat of fire, it is vital that every household uses tools for fire protection. When used in conjunction with smoke alarms and fire extinguishers, and as part of an overall fire-escape plan, the EL53W-2 is an effective last-resort tool to help you and your family safely exit a dangerous situation.
Tough Nylon/Steel Construction, Anti-Slip Rungs, and Secure Hooks
Exceptionally durable, this ladder is tested to American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) standards. Featuring strong nylon/steel construction and measuring 24 feet in length, the EL5W-2 provides a dependable means of escape through a third-floor window during a home fire.
This ladder is easy to set up and is strong enough to help both children and adults quickly exit to safety. It arrives fully assembled and ready to use in one minute. Extra-wide hooks secure the ladder to any windowsill measuring at least 20 inches (51 centimeters) wide and 32 inches (81 centimeters) high with a sill width between a minimum of 6 inches (15 centimeters) and a maximum of 13 inches (33 centimeters).
The ladder’s slip-resistant, epoxy-coated rungs provide sure footing, and steel stabilizers on each rung help keep your feet steady and balanced, preventing the rungs from swaying as you step on or off of them. For added stability, DuPont Cordura nylon strapping lends extra strength and durability, while steel construction tested to 1,125 pounds means this ladder safely holds up to 375 pounds at a time.
The EL53W-2 comes with a six-year limited warranty.
