Customer Questions & Answers

What are the measurements of the box we will install in the wall under the window? I also need a 3 story ladder like this one how can I find one?

Asked by: Jenny
I installed the 3 story model under a two story window that was above a covered porch outside. The extra length would be needed to get over the covered area and then to the ground. Don't no why the company would say not to do this. I just told my 14 year old son that he would need to throw the ladder out and over the covered porch. He could then climb out the window, onto the covered porch, and down the ladder.

Does this ladder require a flat exterior wall beneath the window? We have a covered porch directly beneath our window.

Asked by: Goose27
The instructions say to make certain the area is clear of all obstacles, people and animals. The covered porch would be considered an obstacle. You must have a clear path to the ground before you release the ladder.

Can this be attached to a second story deck

We have a deck on our upper level with doors that self lock. Can this be installed on the deck to escape for fire or if we lock ourselves out?
Asked by: deb
Yes, this can be used from a deck or railing.

This will not fit between standard 16" spaced studs which have 14.5" of space in-between them?

2-Story Built-In Fire Escape Ladder is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Meets a fire exit escape plan We converted a interior second floor storage room into a classroom and needed a second point of egress in the event of fire. We installed an interior fire egress window and the Werner escape ladder. The ladder was exit tested by 16 and 74 year old males, therefore it meets our needs. The edges of the aluminum are sharp and will damage the wall and any wood work into which they come in contact. Therefore, anticipate some possible damage to the exterior supporting walls. We will not be doing a lot of practice drills. Overall I am very satisfied.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from These will be what I am looking for We are a foster family and we were required to get fire escape ladders in our 2 story home that were installed into the studs of the house. While a bit more pricey than I might normally pay, this was the most affordable if you want to install it into the home. The instructions were fairly straightforward to follow and you needed some basic knowledge of feeling comfortable cutting into the Sheetrock and into the studs of the home. For a seasoned "do-it-yourselfer," this should be a breeze to install. I would not consider myself one of those, and I did not have a huge problem getting them installed with the right tools.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great permanent safety fixture I placed this escape latter in an upstairs apartment I own. By building it in the wall it made it exactly where it is needed in the event there is a fire. Also, since this is a rental it made it a permanent fixture rather than something that could "accidentally" be taken in a move.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy Breezy, you're going to be able to get Freezy For about $100/ bedroom, why would you not install these in every bedroom above the first floor? Duh! No brainer! I had a carpenter do it and it did not take long. First one took some time and the next 2 were a breeze cause he had it all figured out. Seem to be very good quality. I am going to take the advise of another reviewer and put a "Fire" label on them. They pretty much blend in with the wall and are not noticeable. If you are building a house, installation is literally 2 screws that will mount it between 2 studs under the window before you sheetrock. If you have already sheetrocked, you just need to cut out a rectangle and mount it between 2 studs. Easy breezy, you're going to be able to get freezy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product did the job that a portable ladder could not do We had purchased and returned a portable escape ladder after we determined that our window openings are not constructed in such a way that allows for portable ladders because we have stone on our home exterior. I can't imagine that anyone with stone or maybe even brick could use the portable ladders (even though they state they are adjustable). This ladder was installed by a handyman because I could not do it myself but it was well worth it for the peace of mind. I know that if there is ever an emergency and we have to escape quickly it would super easy and quick to throw the ladder over and climb out. Also, having it attached to the wall beams under the window means that it is very secure and we know it won't budge if we ever have to use it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A lot of work, but a lot of piece of mind!! Great quality fire escape ladder. Installation took a lot longer than I planned. My window had a stud centered below the window. I had to sawzal it out and then install two new studs to anchor the box. I beefed up the newly installed studs with Sampson L-Brackets for extra strength. I was able to keep drywall repair to a minimum by carefully cutting out my opening with a rock knife and using that piece for the repair.. I had to cut-out a larger opening than what was called for to install the new studs. After the center stud was cut out and the new studs installed, installation was a snap. It was definitely a job! But now I will have piece of mind for years to come knowing it is there and knowing I will NOT have to search for a portable escape ladder at 2AM in a smoke filled room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from exactly as advertised Most importantly there were no surprises upon receipt. Bought 3ea and they were of great quality and installed just as advertised. I was curious as to why they wanted you to cut the small hole first...and then found out why. A wire ran along the wall and by cutting the small hole first and finding this 'surprise', I was able to adjust the larger hole cut easily and not have to play Mr. Drywall. Good to follow directions. YouTube video available on their site. Shipped quickly...matter of days.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from In wall Fire Ladder This is the best design for a fire ladder that I have seen. It installs right into the wall with just a small square cover showing. You would hardly notice that it was there. I had a carpenter install it but if you are handy, you could probably do it yourself. The carpenter, a 6 foot male, pulled it out and tested it out the window. It held him quite easily. He was then able to fold it up and tuck it back into the box installed in the wall. For $99.00 and installation, this gives me a great deal of security in case of fire. I would highly recommend it.
