The National Fire Protection Association recommends storing one ladder in every occupied room of your home that is above the main level. With a Kidde Escape ladder, you can keep your family and children safe in the event of a fire or other emergency.

Ideal for third-story escapes. The Kidde KL3S escape ladder features a strong and lightweight design, compact storability and one-foot wide rungs.

The Kidde KL3S extends to 25 feet for use in three-story rooms, quick and easy to use Kidde escape ladders store compactly and don't deploy until you need them. Ladder fits easily under a bed or in a closet near the window.

If a fire necessitates an escape from the second or third story of your home, it's easy to move a Kidde escape ladder to the window, open and place the attachment hooks over the windowsill, and pull the release strap to unfurl the ladder and climb to safety.

The Kidde KL3S is strong and durable with metal rungs and red nylon strap rails, this Kidde escape ladder can support up to 750 pounds on one rung or 1,000 pounds when the load is distributed on more than one rung.

Anti-slip, zinc-plated steel rungs prevent slipping and ensure a safe descent, and the ladders are flame resistant for increased protection. The Kidde escape ladder is backed by a five-year manufacturer's limited warranty.

any price to save a life is cheap.
Hot
I didn't want one of these until I thought that I could potentially die if I needed to escape from a high place.

I mean, I live in a bungalow, but that's not the point.
Thanks had been looking at these a few weeks back.
Great for bedroom window when visiting neighbours wife...
We should have one of these, but as we have a fire door on the second floor aren't we safe anyway?
These are a must in every home . You never know when you have to make a quick exit. Fire, her indoors, the kids doing your head in. anything!!!
I live on the 6th floor, do I need two?
If i bought one of these and had a fire in the kitchen, I wouldnt be able to help myself but run upstairs just so I could use this ladder. Even if there was a perfectly safe route out of the house through the front door!

na, just position a trampoline below the window
Something useful on HUKD, for a change. Voted hot.

Check the guidance for your property. I owned a flat a few years ago which was on the first floor. If there was a fire in another adjacent flat the advise given to us was to shut the doors and stay inside. The flat was fire proof, the corridor out side could be where the fire was
Bought two for my bungalow
One in every higher lever room is excessive in my opinion
Will they deliver to Devon & discreetly packaged? My current and hopefully temporary address is...HMP Dartmoor; Princetown PL20 6RR.
Thanks in advance.

Two storey on ebay for £30.99 if that's all you need

Seems Ok. Just a question. How would you use with little kids in case of fire? Is there any bag for kids available?
Guess I am like lots of people - been meaning to buy one for years.

Finally bought one - thank you. Hopefully never have to use it
Can I buy then test or is it a one use thing.... I mean it'll entertain the village but concerned if I'm panicked I'll be lost of the skill and do more harm than good.

Yes, these are reusable. I'd want to test and familiarise myself with how to use before I needed to.

Judging by the number of smoke detectors I hear beeping whilst in customers homes I'm not convinced everyone agrees. Heated OP, reminded me to bring my escape ladder in from the garage. :-)
check the reviews, it may not be reusable, I was gong to buy one and the wife suggested we just buy some climbing rope, which seems a cheaper alternative
I live in a flat with one entrance which is up an old tower and no other way out so I've got an axe next to my bed to smash the window out and rope already tied to my bed that is ready to throw out that reaches to the ground (I hope), that is my official fire escape. I have a feeling this would be better..

​the reviews suggest otherwise
"The National Fire Protection Association" is an American trade association, who may well recommend these for American homes, but these are not recommended for use in the UK - where our fire safety standards are higher and these are not needed.
This is cobblers. You're much safer having smoke detection in every room (at very least in hall/landing) if you're that concerned. Fire doors in 2nd+ floor houses contain fires provided they are shut - escape via common areas, not out of the window..

Sorry to be blunt, but comments like yours annoy me. You can't simply say our standards are higher here. In newer homes, yes, but there are hundred of thousands(literally) of older homes out there that are no where near todays standards in terms of compartmentation, escape route distances, fire breaks/cavity barriers, and partitions and doors with adequate fire ratings. Most notably non traditional housing build pre and post war, a lot of which are steel houses, went up in flames in a matter of minutes. So to say that an escape ladder is not needed in the UK because our safety standards are higher, is nonsense.
I hope it's fireproof.

These are NOT needed?????
So if you have a fire that's now reached your bedroom door and you need to escape what you gonna do? Spider-Man down the wall??

It depends... If the fire starts in the corridor (fire escape route) then no and you would need to find another means of escape. Your flat is assumed to be the compartment and therefore should be fire-rated accordingly.

You are also making assumptions that the fire door will have been installed correctly but there are many that are not. Fire doors are very expensive but there are many installed without the correct firestopping behind the architraves which renders the door useless.

Someone has mentioned that the UK regulations are more stringent than the US which is not the case. Unfortunately it seems that in UK construction, cheap and cheerful comes first over safety and education. With this in mind, an escape ladder is a good product to own - be safe rather than sorry.

Best thing to do is get a residential sprinkler system fitted. Local company by me does this. Residential sprinkler protection based in Caerphilly.

3Camels show it as cheapest ever price. only on amazon obvs. Handy though i guess if you live in fear of zombies etc.
I do wonder

If i was in my house in the bedroom and we had a fire
I would just hang out of the window and drop to the floor your looking at maybe a 10 foot drop

I dont think that would kill too many people

you might get a broken leg /foot/hip but thats about the max you could expect and you would have to be really really unlucky to die from a 10 foot fall feet first

Plus it would be a last resort so i am wondering what use these ladders would be

but I guess its like anything safety you only wish you had it when you need it and by then its too late

I know I would be happy to have this under my bed if my stair case was up in flames!!
Also doubles as flood escape for those on ground floor.
Sure, it's the safer option, but kind of lessens the impact of jumping out of the house parkour style...

Spend £0 and probably not die or spend < £40 and definitely not die - not a hard choice for me

I find that hard to believe... A fireproof flat? Fireproof timbers and plasterboard... Fireproof carpet and laminate.

What they probably meant was it's a 30minute expected time until certain death as a result of regs the council have in place in the building.

You want some advice...? Get out and get out quickly
Ironic that the product picture has a flame attached to it.
