S-CAPEPLUS

In case of an emergency, the fast evacuation of a building is essential to ensure the safety of the individuals inside. It is often needed to use equipment to rescue immobile individuals and that’s what the S-CAPEPLUS mattress is all about, providing evacuation assistance for those who are unable to independently follow emergency exit procedures.

Made by the Dutch company Tetcon, the solution caters to the elderly, obese, disabled, and bed-ridden occupants — ensuring the fastest and easiest evacuation of vulnerable or immobile occupants.

Due to the speed, ease-of-use and comfort – S-CAPEPLUS is used by many organizations around the world, such as schools, hospitals, companies, senior living facilities, shopping malls, cinemas, theatres and special care facilities.

Ergonomically designed, S-CAPEPLUS evacuation aids also protect those being carried out of the building against harmful bacteria. These fancy mattresses are easy to use and are offered without hefty maintenance contracts.

In addition to the regular model, Tetcon also offers the Premium version of S-CAPEPLUS which is made with the super-strong fiber, Dyneema. This version also includes adjustable head blocks, more “bridges” in the pulling straps, and a few other bells and whistles.

In addition, there is a smaller S-CAPEPLUS Youth Model, Inflatable Model, and the S-CAPEKIDS evacuation mat – which provides the capability of evacuating four babies at once.

For all S-CAPEPLUS models, the company offers a few accessories such as a storage cabinet, wall cover, and pictogram (sign for the evacuation mattress).

Aside from hospitals and health systems — and UK’s NHS — Tetcon’s clients include organizations such as Philips, IBM, Fluke, and others.
