The Multi-Entry mode is a multi-entrance emergency escape installation that has similarity fire resistance features to the fire escape stairs and fireman's lift. It takes up little space to install and can take up the challenges during fire while evacuating occupants. Apart from the similarity in the safety features, unlike the fireman's lifts the multi-entry mode need no power supply to operate, allowing it to be operational for evacuation during power black out. Furthermore, it has no stairs, which allow elderly, disabled or injured people on stretcher to escape vertically to ground level safely. This is contrary to the fire staircase, which can only be used by able-bodied people. It is a good alternative for buildings where provision of firemen's lifts is not required for rescue, without compromising on safety. There is no constraint in height of building. Several segments of chute overlap in forming a long chute where it is accessible from every floor or from every alternate floor.

� No power source is required;
