Last Minute Fire Escape

Intended as a last resort lifesaver, Xitus is a product that allows a building’s occupants to safely descend to ground level when extreme conditions are present. The product is deployed and positioned over a window ledge where the user can secure it with floor mounts before securing a safety line. After climbing over, a controlled descent device slows the person to the ground carefully so they can quickly unclip and allow the next person to descend to safety.
