    I got one of these for £20 years ago in TKMaxx - hope I never need it

    People thing I’m a raging nerd when I tell them we have an escape ladder

    I purchased something like this recently but after reading reviews and advice I got one that set the steps away from the wall (so your feet can more safely get and stay on the steps)

    Most people cannot use a real raking ladder when deployed correctly.....this would be fatal in an emergency used under panic..better consulting FO and perhaps looking to add/improve fore precautions for detection inside the building which MUST have a protected route etc. for MOE....COLD on that basis..........Read the instructions, as smoke fills your eyes, before deploying if you must for added safety ........

    Many of the people I see close to where I live don't even have opening lights on upper floor windows let alone an escape route. I ordered the extra cost hinges which allow the windows to open to 90 degrees to allow escape, the ordinary ones will only open to around 45 degrees and given the size of some people these days they wouldn't be able to squeeze through that let alone climb down a fire ladder.

    Fair comment. Size of people is their choice and can't be designed for in these cases....First photo shows a sliding sash to provide full window opening width, which I have never seen in a residential building in UK. Does not mean they do not exist though. No grab rails from cill. to ladder. I use ladders but no thanks. Last photo window obstructs opening in window frame, totally not possible to exit safely. Certainly not while that chain link ladder would be swinging wildly,...possibly 3 floors up - try cocking a leg over that window cill too. Looks totally American advertising and not safe. Have a good Christmas, my friend. COLD deal based on this.

    If the house was on fire and I was trapped upstairs I'd have a go getting out on one of these.

    Reckon if I was only 2 or 3 storeys up I'd have more chance getting out via the stairs than dragging this thing out of a cupboard, setting it up & convincing myself to climb out of the window onto it. Certainly wouldn't be able to convince the wife or dog...

    Yes, that is reality, so you wouldn't leave the family then...hope you never have to face anything like it. Have a Good Christmas. Hope you take positive vibes from the info. Stay safe; stay protected as a family.

    Anything can start a fire in a house.......from this mornings paper

    Dog 'started fire' after accidentally turning hairdryer on in Christmas Eve blaze in Essex. Firefighters believed that the fire was caused by a dog who jumped on a bed and turned a hairdryer on.By ASTHA SAXENA

    I concur with the comments above about getting one with standoffs on each of the rungs to hold them away from the wall if you buy one, because your feet will push the rungs against the wall, so you'd only be able to get the tips of your toes on the rung without them.

    You should also test the hook on your window to make sure you can hook it on securely enough on your particular window cill/frame. eg see video below.

    of course you would...........3 am winter night, lights wiring burnt (so pitch black) as that was where fire started, smoke ingress, 3 floors up, infirm, panicking, never used a ladder...got to climb over the window cill... muscles shaking with fear... no problem at all, eh!...........fit a fire Smoke/Heat detector basic system as needed..now...Good Luck, Hope This Helps....

    I get your point, but the risk is better than certain death or you can take your chances that the fire brigade will get there in time. I would prefer one that steps away from the wall as stated above, however I would try and use this if it's all I had.

    I'm also certain, although worried, I would not be infirm nor shaking with fear or panicking. It's better than death

    Not always you are being a bit ignorant my friend. You may reduce the possibility, but not 100%

    Apparently you can only use these once, is that true?

    You are aware that minimum dimensions for windows under B/Regs apply when they are used to aide escape..Similar apply to doors accessing protected shafts/routes(must be self closing SC) to aid MOE in case of fire and protect smoke ingress into the shaft. Guess what? People wedge the doors open regularly with Fire extinguishers 'cause they get fed up opening them after SC. Know as the 'British standard Door Wedge'. It is an offence to provide windows that do not comply too- but it usually takes deaths to highlight it..too late then.

    Enjoyed reading the comments of Keith Laird in this thread. I’m guessing most of his posted deals are doggy treats and Vaseline. 👩🏻‍🚒🐶

    I didn’t even know such a thing existed. Heat added for updating my knowledge

    I sort of feel like trying to use this would be more dangerous than waiting on help.

    Good smoke alarms (not all are good) and a large fire extinguisher on second floor close to your bedroom and you should be fine.
