Descending emergency line
2013 Noframe Team Project
As the number of high-rise buildings increases, more people are suffering accidents because they fail in escaping from the fire situation.
The presented rescue lift is designed in a totally new concept, unlike the existing rescue lift. The existing rescue lift has a structure to allow only one person to escape in emergency fire situations. However, it is almost impossible to get one person to come down one by one at a time. The presented rescue lift solves such a problem using its structure. The presented rescue lift is designed: if one escapes riding a rescue lift, the rescue belt goes up again to the floor where the rescue lift is installed. Then, another person in the building wears the belt and escapes downward.

The room and all contents are completely destroyed. Heat damage extends throughout the entire house, burning or melting all items within 5 feet of the ceiling. Smoke has blacked all contents of the house.
As the number of high-rise buildings increases, more people are suffering accidents because they fail in escaping from the fire situation. In addition, considerable numbers of people try to escape out the window as they feel the threat of fire in a high-rise building. Many persons in a fire situation think that they must escape even at a dangerous height and try it. The most serious problem is that it is disposable so only one person can escape at a time. It takes about within 3 minutes for one
person to escape at 10-story height. However, it is necessary to find a way to enable several persons to escape on the same floor.
The presented rescue lift has a structure used to move peoples in ski resorts. One line circulates, and it rescues people continually.
It is developed that at least for 4 persons can escape at a time. It is not disposable, so that several persons can escape from the building in rows
It consists of the main body where two stainless pulleys built in. A 30 meter wire rope is wound on the body. If you press the emergency button, the body cover comes off and the rope is unwound. A total of 4 safety belts are contained in the body. A 2-point safety belt used in the existing rescue belt offered. Thus, users can use it without being perplexed even when using it for the first time. In addition, it isn’t difficult to fix the presented safety belt to the body and wear it around. Thus, it is possible to send the used safety belt quickly upward after escaping. In the hook unit to connect the safety belt and the rope, climbing hooks are used to withstand high load.
The cover is made of engineering plastic, so light but solid. It is designed to throw downward and thus to make a rope way, so that the rope is not twined on the part of the cover.
