A fire exit stair is a special kind of emergency exit, generally mounted to the outside of a building or occasionally inside but disconnect from the main areas of the building. It provides a method of escape in the occurrence of a fire or other emergency that makes the stairwells inside a building inaccessible. At one time, there were a very important aspect of fire safety for all new construction in urban areas; more in recent times; however, they have broken out of general use. AMS Engineering works closely with its customers to ensure that the manufacturing of fire exit stair that exceeds your expectations.
Working across all sectors, our manufacturers and fabricators present fire exit stairs in schools, hotels, leisure centres, and domestic properties and so on. Our range of designs span from single flight domestic fire escapes through to multi floored staircase structures that can take all careful planning and true engineering. A fire exit stair consists of a number of horizontal platforms, one at every story of a building, with ladders or stairs relating them. The platform and stairs are usually open steel gratings to prevent the build-ups of ice, snow, and leaves. Railings are usually provided on each of the levels, but as fire exit stairs are designed for emergency use only, these railings often do not need to meet the same standards as railings in other perspective.
The ladder from the lowest level of the fire escape to the ground may be fixed, but more commonly, it swings down on an axis or slides down along a track. The moveable designs allow dwellers to safely achieve the ground in the event of a fire but prevent persons from getting into the fire escape from the ground at other times. We are specialists in replacements that involve the removal of an old fire exit stair right through to the setting up of a new one.
Knowing where the emergency exits are in buildings can save lives. Some buildings, such as schools, have fire drills to practice using emergency exits. Many disasters could have been prevented if people had known where fire escapes were and if emergency exits had not been blocked. For example, in the September 11, 2001, attacks on the World Trade Center, some of the emergency exits inside the building were inaccessible, while others were locked. In the Stardust Disaster and the 2006 Moscow hospital fire, the emergency exits were locked and most windows barred shut. In the case of the Station Nightclub, the premises was over capacity the night fire broke out, the front exit was not designed well (right outside the door, the concrete approach split 90 degrees and a railing ran along the edge), and an emergency exit swung inward, not outward as code requires.
In many countries, it is required that all new commercial buildings include well-marked emergency exits. Older buildings must be retrofitted with fire escapes. In countries where emergency exits are not standard, fires will often result in a much greater loss of life.

- Packaging Details: Local building codes will often dictate the number of fire exits required for a building of a given size. This may include specifying the number of stairs. For any building bigger than a private house, modern codes invariably specify at least two sets of stairs. Furthermore, such stairs must be completely separate from each other. Some architects meet this requirement by housing two stairs in a "double helix" configuration where two stairs occupy the same floor space, intertwined. For old buildings that predate modern fire code requirements and lack space for a second staircase, having intertwining stairs so close to each other may allow firefighters going up and evacuees going down to use separate staircases.  Westfield Stratford City uses this configuration in the Upper car park. This part of the building has 8 storeys: LG, G & 1 are part of the shopping centre; 2 has some offices & a storage area; CP1, CP2, CP3 & CP4 are a multi-storey car park. The floors are served by the main public lifts & escalators, & by 1 set of a double-helix stairway & lift per 1000 square metres, going into the service areas. The main public escalators don't count as fire exits, as the doors may be locked during less busy periods. The building, therefore, has one fire exit per 4000m2 of floor space.
