Metal Fire Escape Services
When it comes to the safety of yourself, your staff, tenants, and the general public it’s imperative to have the correct safety measures in place in event of an emergency. At AMP Welding & Fabrication we pride ourselves in fabricating, repairing and building made-to-measure custom fire escapes that are structurally sound, and fully compliant with local, state and international building code.
Our experienced and attentive designers always take regulatory procedures seriously when they’re creating the plans for steel fire escapes in all the areas we serve, taking in to account a variety of factors surrounding the space available and the layout of your building to ensure every single aspect is correct.
Whether you require a single flight fire escape for a small office building in your area, or a multi-floored fire escape for an industrial warehouse, AMP Welding and Fabrication are here to help throughout the entire process; from designing the fire escape with our CAD certified designers, to fabrication, installation and repair. Each stage of the process is carefully thought out and is implemented with excellent precision.
What is a Fire Escape?
A fire escape staircase is a special kind of emergency exit, usually mounted to the outside of a building or occasionally inside but separate from the main areas of the building. It provides a method of escape in the event of a fire or other emergency that makes the stairwells inside a building inaccessible. The metal escape stair consists of a number of horizontal platforms, one at each story of a building, with ladders or stairs connecting them. The platform and stairs are usually open steel gratings, to prevent the build-up of ice, snow, and leaves.
Metals used in Fire Escapes
Wrought Iron; They are iron-carbon alloys containing more than 2% carbon ratio. It is one of the most preferred materials in the production of kitchenware. Because it does not contain toxic substances, it is resistant to high temperatures, it conducts and distributes heat very well, it is easy to shape. We use wrought iron in metal fire escape production due to its high temperature resistance and non-toxicity.
Galvanized Steel / Stainless Steel: Galvanized steel is chemically treated steel to protect it from corrosion. The basic rule for protecting steel from corrosion is to coat it with another metal, zinc.
The zinc covers the surface of the steel when the steel is immersed in molten zinc. This is a kind of chemical reaction between metals. Zinc not only adheres to the surface of the steel like paint, but becomes a part of the steel after this reaction.
Steel Grating: Steel gratings are generally used in the middle parts of the steps or railings in metal fire escape stairs. Steel grates provide both protection from flames and breathing in fresh air. We can say that it is these steel grates that make metal fire escapes the safest type of emergency escapes.
