Emergency Slide May Save Your Life – Design You Trust

Emergency Slide May Save Your Life

An emergency slide is tried out in a building in Shanghai, China. The stainless steel chute has been attached to the banister of the stairs. The idea is that in an emergency the slide would be deployed and people would use it to exit the building quickly rather than using the stairs. According to inventor Zhou Miaorong people using the slide could escape from a five-storey building in 14 seconds. (Imaginechina / Rex Feature)
