The escape stair is a specially developed operational vehicle for rapid evacuation of aircraft passengers. At the same time, operational forces like firefighters, rescue and emergency personnel can gain access to the interior of the aircraft.
Robustness and ease of use are the main feature of this type of vehicle. A particular highlight is the multi-supported intuitive operating concept of the escape stairs from Rosenbauer: all functions can be controlled by just one person.
Operational heights of up to 8.30 m (A380)
All functions operable by one person
Generous space for safe operation
Glare-free lighting concept for the evacuation area
The E8000/E3000 Escape stair is conceived purely as a rescue device. All functions are designed for minimal rescue times.
This multi-faceted operational vehicle is characterized by very special functions:
HLCS - Height Level Control System: Easy to operate pre-selection system on a display with a graphical user interface in the driver's cab.
Simple and very quick pre-selection of door heights from all current vehicle types.
ARL - Automatic Level Regulation with height equalization for surface unevenness of more than 200 mm.
Generously dimensioned platform for safe working conditions
Closed side panels on the entire stair and platform area increase safety and prevent fear of falling
Platform and steps over the entire effective area of the steps (always horizontal to the chassis)
Excellent and glare-free illumination of vehicle surroundings or evacuation area.
High drive stability thanks to 3-axle concept
