SERVICE AND REPAIRS

Don’t Let Your Fire Escape Become Dangerous and a Liability

Make sure your fire escape system can perform when it is needed the most when lives depend on it! Don’t wait until it is too long, too sad and regretful, and too expensive. Fire escapes when properly maintained should last as long as the building itself. Like any exterior component, a fire escape is exposed to nature’s elements, and because it is typically made of metal, it’s subject to rust and deterioration.

West Coast Fire Escapes specializes in fire escape service and repairs. Repairs are routinely needed to ensure that your fire escape is functional. Sometimes stairs and brackets must be repaired or painted. Because proper repair is necessary for certification, we always ensure that your fire escape is repaired correctly and safely. With yearly service, a fire escape structure can last more than 20 years. Without proper service, they may fail at the most critical time, during an emergency. Furthermore, most insurance companies require yearly service of the insured building’s safety equipment as also suggested by the technicians themselves.
