Collapsible Ladeder For Fire Emergencies
It's easy to scoff at statistics and figure that fire only happens "to the other guy". But what would you do if disaster struck home - your home?

Most families now have smoke detectors, the first step in a two-part program of home fire protection.

But what if fire blocks the halls or stairway? What if your only escape route is a 2nd or 3rd floor window?

"Firescape", a new emergency fire ladder from Rival Mfg., offers a ready way out. Fast, light and easy to use, it's available in two models -15 or 25 ft. - and folds up for storage into a small, compact case for storage under a bed, or in a closet near an exit window.

Both models are made of 49 strand galvanized steel cable rated at 950 lbs. test. "This cable won't burn, rot or rust and is virtually indestructable. What's more, it doesn't kink or tangle like chain-type ladders," a spokesman for Rival Mfg, points out.

The emergency ladder requires no screws, bolts or clamps. It loops right over any sill. Individual rungs have a non-slip surface for secure footing - even without shoes. Rings are made of reinforced, 111/2 in. wide tubular galvanized steel. Galvanized steel "standoffs" are welded to rungs about 4 ft. apart to brace the ladder and keep it away from the wall for easier descent.
