Automatic Emergency Escape Hammer

Our automatic emergency escape hammer provides a fast and reliable exit through a toughened glass window.  Data from accidents and research shows that the provision of emergency exits on trains is often inadequate. Safescape provides passengers with emergency exits that will provide fast emergency escape and could therefore save lives.

The automatic emergency escape hammer can be used on buses, trains, clean rooms or in buildings.  They can include additional features to make them less liable to misuse or tampering depending on where the device has to be located.  Other electric circuits can be accessed if required to link into other systems in the building, bus or train.

The units can be specified when the vehicle or building is specified making it easier to design the units to fit into the plans.
