I see no mark on your product and fire safety is a known life safety requirement so I would imagine that you would want to proudly display which laboratory has verified the integrity of your product.

Answer: 
The ESC fire escape ladders are not UL approved.
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.

Answers

Answer: 
Proper installation requires studs must be 16" center to center for proper installation. Proper placement of the ladder requires installing the metal pan mounted beneath the window approximately 5-6 inches from the bottom of the window opening, between the window apron and baseboard moldings.

Answer: 
We do not suggest installing the tray as you have described. The studs must be 16" center-to-center for proper installation. Proper placement of the ladder requires installing the metal pan beneath the window approximately 5-6 inches from the bottom of the window sill, between the window apron and baseboard moldings.

We will be mounting the case below a window in a 2 x 6" exterior wall. R-19 batt insulation is normally placed in the stud cavity. if the case is 3 1/2" that would only leave 2" for insulation, Styrofoam is only rated as R-10?

I want to install a two story ladder in each of my grandchildren's bedrooms but am concerned about the weight. The specs show 16 pounds but I assume that is for the whole unit (box, mounting hardware and door). I would like to know the weight of just the part you lift out the window. thank you.

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.
