Safety Chair Powered Evacuation - Bringing Power to the People

Safety Chair Power Evacuation Chair EV8000

London, United Kingdom May 18, 2021 ( - Safety Chair developed and released its EV8000 power chair three years ago, which is now the industry-defining powered evacuation chair capable of taking a weight of up to 223Kg (500lb), both upstairs and downstairs with minimal manual handling and being operated by a single person.

Safety Chair found that traditional manual evacuation chairs weren't the correct solution when evacuating upwards, as they complicated evacuations, due to the need to allocate a minimum of 4 people depending on the weight of the passenger and also relied on the brute strength of operators.

3 years on, Safety Chair is established as the leading powered evacuation chair manufacturer, continuing to innovate in its 3rd generation evacuation chairs which are to be launched in May 2021.  Providing powered solutions to thousands of customers in sectors such as hospitals, schools, and many other leading organisations the Safety Chair Evacuation Chair is the industry standard choice.

The National Portrait Gallery was a prime example of the benefits Safety Chair can deliver.  Having previously purchased a manual chair from a different company, they realised that the lifting required made this solution unacceptable.  Safety Chair asked one of their Evacuation Experts to assess the site, resulting in the purchase of a number of powered chairs.  During training with the National Portrait Gallery, a representative commented "they couldn't believe the ease of use and the lack of effort required, which was such a stark contrast to what was initially recommended by another company".

One high-profile customer is the Ambulance service, one of which is East of England, which has fitted an EV8000 Safety Chair in every one of their ambulances.

When Safety Chair was approached by East of England Ambulance to provide powered chairs for their new fleet of ambulances, they hit the drawing board to develop both a crash-tested CEN bracket and added a manual switch, ensuring that the chair will always work even with a critical power failure.

Dave Sexby, Business Support Manager for EEAT said "The East of England Ambulance Trust had a need to rapidly change its carry chair to complement a change to our front line emergency, with very short notice Safety Chair were approached to support this programme of work.  In a number of days, they were able to work with us to design and test a new bracket to fit into the aperture on the ambulance, design and support the regional rollout of a training programme for front line clinicians at multiple sites"

Dave adds "I am pleased to say that we enjoy a collaborative and supportive relationship with Safety chair who have helped us to bring a new device into our service to support both our patients and staff."

Safety Chair is a leading global evacuation company, providing equipment, training, and servicing at great value and exceptional quality.  The team consists of industry leaders with many years of experience in the evacuation industry allowing us to give unrivalled advice and recommendations.

Nick Cox of Safety Chair added "We are proud of our remarkable products, which are helping to change people's lives all around the world.  Coupled with the best customer service and a price promise we have seen our business grow 300%, even with Covid19.  Many other companies in the market are obsessed with their egos, where we are proud and obsessed with providing our customers with exceptional customer service, that genuinely change their lives positively."  Nick further added "Safety Chair continues to innovate ensuring their chair is leading the way, against more expensive, copycat, low-quality chairs often from China.  Although powered evacuation chairs tend to look similar, they are not the same quality or have the same features and the Safety Chair is the only creditable solution in the market."
