In an emergency such as fire, this permanently fixed ladder changes from a slim drainpipe like unit into a safe and sturdy means of escape. Pull out the lock pin and the ladder will fold out and transform into an easy to use solid ladder.

Drop Down ladders should be fitted as close to escape window as possible. A connection kit including all drill bits, fixing kits, bolts and plugs are included with each ladder.
