Chute or slide-based evacuation
Our slide-based systems can be supplied to match any ship design and enable extreme fore and aft installation. Requiring a minimum of deck space and crew to operate, these systems evacuate up to 657 people in 30 minutes and remain functional even under extreme list and flooding conditions.
The slide systems are constructed mainly from high-grade natural rubber to withstand the higher frequency and intensity of drills performed by navy operators. Additional system liferafts can be placed almost anywhere on the ship.
On the other hand, our popular chutebased systems are ideal for high-sided vessels where a minimal deck footprint is required. These fully-contained systems evacuate up to 1000 people in 30 minutes and feature Kevlar-lined and fire retardant chutes for extra evacuee protection. The systems are shock tested CETENA (MIL STD 901D).
All systems are supported by our global service network and VIKING Safety Academy training units. Our naval architects and engineers can provide technical assistance for integration with your vessel, too.
