What's the length of the strap between the connection in the box to the 1st step? Is that a fixed distance or can it be adjusted?

Can the fire escape ladder be mounted off center of the window?

I have a stud directly in the middle of a 30 inch window with an electrical box on one side. The studs are 16 inches on center so I can mount the ladder on the other side of the center stud and still be within the 14 1/4 and 14 3/4 width requirement.
Asked by: Ron
Studs must be 16" center to center for proper installation. Placement of the ladder requires installing the metal pan beneath the window approximately 5-6 inches from the bottom of the window opening between the window apron and baseboard moldings.

Can this ladder be used more than once?

Wanted to see can it be used to practice and be re-used again.
Asked by: Fred
Yes, the ladder can be reused. During the installation process, it is recommended that once the ladder is mounted in place, the ladder should be cut to length and tested by first standing on the bottom rung. The ladder easily folds again for storage into the wall mounted pan. We do not have a published expiration date for our ESC models of ladders. These should be inspected after each use to ensure their are no damages, and still able to be used.

Is the ESC220 2-Story Built-In Fire Escape Ladder fire rated? If not do you have a fire rated escape ladder?

Is their fire ratings for this product ? Is this approved by any fire department or agency?
Asked by: Harry
The fire escape ladders are not designed with a fire rating. The ladder is used as an escape route, not a system to withstand fire resistance.

Inside deployment

My home is built into a hill with 12' high walls. The bedrooms are at the back of the house with windows located about 8' high. Our Fire Marahal requires fire escape ladders to be installed so that an occupant could escape through those windows. Can your fire escape ladder be deployed in this manner?

Can it be surface mounted below a window

Can this be surface mounted inside below a window. I'm reluctant to remove insulation on a outside wall to accommodate the box.

Different types of ladders are designed to keep you safe and productive when climbing or standing. Using the wrong style of ladder or simply ignoring the limitations of climbing equipment can result in a fall or serious injury.
Height is referring to the actual ladder height. Extension ladders should be 7 to 10 feet longer than the highest support or contact point, which may be the wall or roof line. The highest standing level is four rungs down from the top. The highest permitted standing level on a stepladder is two steps down from the top.

Reach height is the maximum reach assuming a 5’6” person with a vertical 12” reach.
Ladders are designed to safely hold up to a specific amount of weight. The Werner Performance System defines five different capacities using a color and star rating system. The Duty Rating is defined as the maximum safe load capacity of the ladder. A person’s fully clothed weight plus the weight of any tools and materials that are carried onto the ladder must be less than the load capacity.

Werner offers ladder made from fiberglass and aluminum. Each material has characteristics which make it best for certain applications, or one material may simply fit the personal preferences of the user. For example, if working around electricity users should select fiberglass products due to their non-conductive side rails.
