Escape stair

The rescue unit with a lot of space and little set-up time. The escape stair is a specially developed operational vehicle for rapid evacuation of aircraft passengers and for safe access of emergency crews such as the fire department, rescue, and emergency medical crews into the aircraft. The step width and depth are chosen so that three people can comfortably dismount side by side. And the steps always remain in a horizontal position, regardless of the angle of inclination of the stairs. The E5000 allows access to over 90% of all aircraft types. Additionally, the E8000 also reaches the upper deck of the A380. In conjunction with the E3000 front platform, small types of aircraft can also be easily served with these escape stairs.

The Rosenbauer special solution for evacuation, rescue, and access.
