On display was a selection of Evac+Chairs; an evacuation solution for stairway descent during an emergency situation without the need of great physical strength or lifting. Alongside the range of evacuation chairs was the Sigma Fire & Security product range designed to protect fire, safety and security equipment, the ‘Smart +’ range of devices create a delay and act as deterrent and therefore reduce the likelihood of accidental damage, vandalism and misuse. The stand allowed visitors to interact with the products and participate in live demonstrations.
