Two-Story Escape Ladder

The First Alert Two-Story Fire Escape Ladder provides a means of escape from a second-story window in the event of a fire or other emergency. This 14-foot ladder can hold up to 375 lbs. at a time. It is constructed with steel anti-slip rungs and DuPont Cordura nylon strapping for strength and stability. The fire safety ladder can be used on standard window sills, stored under a bed or in a closet for easy access, and comes fully assembled.

Built for Durability

Constructed from steel and DuPont Cordura nylon strapping, the First Alert Two-Story Escape ladder is designed to easily deploy from a standard windowsill. The fire ladder can hold up to 375 lbs. of weight at one time and anti-slip rungs are coated in epoxy for traction. The fire ladder meets standards set by the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM).

Provides a Stable Climb Down

Each rung has steel stabilizers, designed to hold the ladder away from the wall, making it easier to grasp each rung. The stabilizers also work to keep the ladder from swaying, providing a safer means of escape that gets you out faster. Sturdy steel hooks hold the ladder to window sills measuring between 6 and 10 in. wide.

Folds for Easy Storage

The 14 ft. ladder arrives fully assembled and folds back up after opening. Ideal for storing in a closet or under a bed, the ladder's compact size makes it easy to put one ladder in every room for safety. The ladder is ready to use in less than one minute and is lightweight at 12 lbs.

Product Specs
Q: What is the ideal window to use an escape ladder on?
A: The window should be at least 20 inches wide and 32 inches high to give you enough clearance to exit safely. The windowsill width should be between a minimum of 6 inches and a maximum of 10 inches. Also make sure you measure the windowsill from outside to inside. Do not use the ladder on windowsills that are too large or too small for the hooks, damaged or weak, or blocked by furniture or security devices (grilles or bars). From the outside of your home, check below the window for any obstructions - trees, plants, bushes, windows, house fixtures, or any other objects in the direct path below the chosen window.

Q: How much weight can a First Alert Escape Ladder hold?
A: First Alert Escape Ladders can hold up to 1,125 pounds.

Q: Does the escape ladder come with a mounting kit?
A: The First Alert Escape Ladder does not require mounting of any kind. Steel rung stabilizers help to keep the ladder stable while in use.

Q: Where should I store my escape ladder? Should I keep it in the box?
A: Store the ladder where it can be immediately accessed - near the window, under a bed, or in the front part of a closet. Make sure nothing blocks you from reaching the ladder. In a fire, you have limited time to react and take action. Secure the ladder in its original box to keep it from becoming tangled.

A real life saver

This is the second First Alert fire escape ladder I have purchased over the years. It is indispensable for anyone living in a two story house with only one stairway. I've always rested better knowing it was at hand if needed and now I'll rest better knowing my grandson has this same vital protection.

High-Quality, Solid Construction

This escape ladder has an emergency release strap which also doubles as a tie to hold all the rungs in place while storing so it can be quickly and easily moved and put into the window in an emergency. Haven't had to use mine yet, but it feels very solid and is of a high quality construction, but isn't too heavy. I checked it out thoroughly and simulated using it so I would know how if the time came. Just having this in my second story rooms makes me feel safer. This is the third one I have purchased so each room has one, compact box fits under the bed in one room and behind a chair by the window in the other room. If you have a 2-story place, make sure to have at least one of these upstairs in case you ever need it. TIP: If Fire, close bedroom door before opening your window so the influx of oxygen doesn't pull fire into the room.

Good Value

Haven't had to use it, but seems well built, good specs and worth the $35 purchase even for peace of mind.
