Tyne Gangway have secured an order to design and build an emergency escape slide simulator for use at Chicago airport. The slide will be used for fire evacuation training at the airport and will simulate the function of the inflatable slides normally used, eliminating the additional set up time and expense after each use. The slide is mounted on a custom lightweight portable trailer and can be raised/lowered by means of a screw jack driven by hand or a standard power tool with a compatible square drive. The system is modular so it can be delivered in a standard high top container. This bespoke product will be designed, manufactured and tested in less than 8 weeks for shipment to USA.
