Slide To Safety is an emergency evacuation slide system that can be retrofitted to existing buildings and flush mounted into newly constructed buildings. STS is mounted by a system of bolts that make for rapid installation on new or existing buildings. Since STS is a nonelectrical unit, no wiring or electricity will be necessary. Slide To Safety units are 100% prepackaged with all necessary components making for easy installation by an authorized STS installer.
Slide To Safety uses compressed air canisters that run through aspirators to deploy. These aspirators let the slide pull in ambient air, thus giving STS under 6 seconds inflation time. We equip STS with Pressure Relief Valves that are activated when the slide has enough pressure to form a rigid structure. Once deployed, STS will remain fully inflated until the unit is depressurized. For more information, see how STS works.

Since 98% of all active shooter events to date have been carried out by a single attacker, the likelihood of a secondary attack is minimal. The immediate threat of an intruder in the building far outweighs the possibility of a secondary attack while evacuating the building. As police arrive they will also be able to neutralize an attack from the outside more quickly than one inside the building.
