ARE YOU LOOKING FOR THE VAN LEEUWEN EVACUATION CHAIRS?
THESE EVACUATION CHAIRS ARE NO LONGER AVAILABLE UNDER THAT NAME, AS THIS WAS REBRANDED TO ESCAPE-CHAIR®. READ MORE ABOUT THE HISTORY OF THE VAN LEEUWEN EVACUATION CHAIR and its successor.
History of “Van Leeuwen evacuation chair”
The evacuation specialist Escape Mobility Company (formerly Van Leeuwen Companies) has been offering solutions in Europe for evacuating and transferring people in buildings since 1987. Herman van Leeuwen introduced a completely new way of evacuating people from buildings in the Netherlands, Germany and Belgium with the Evac+Chair (evac chair). Sitting in an evacuation chair, a person with mobility issues could be transported down the stairs safely and quickly.
After years of successful sales Mr. Van Leeuwen decided to stop selling Evac+Chairs (evac chair) in these markets. it was time to introduce a new and much more comfortable evacuation chair for both evacuee and operator: the “Van Leeuwen evacuation chair” was born.
Van Leeuwen evacuation chair as predecessor of Escape-Chair®
Under the then company name Trading Company H. van Leeuwen and later Van Leeuwen Companies evacuation chairs were assembled and delivered. Later the company name changed to Escape Mobility Company. In 2003, new models of evacuation chairs were introduced. First under the name ‘Van Leeuwen evacuation chair’ and in 2006, we launched the Escape-Chair® range of evacuation chairs.
These newer models are more suited to the changing needs of customers and the latest safety requirements. Escape products are developed in-house. This enables their Research & Development Department to respond continuously to the wishes of their Customers and also respond to changes in the latest safety requirements. As a result of this, it may imply the further development of an existing product or even the design of a completely new product.
High quality evacuation equipment for a safe evacuation
Escape Mobility Company continues to develop itself as a specialist in evacuation products and equipment for transporting people in buildings. She produces and supplies a range of Escape evacuation chairs, mattresses and carry chairs.
