Area of Refuge: Your Lifeline in Emergencies
What is Area of Refuge?
An area of refuge (AOR) system is a building code-driven standard requiring stairwells, elevator landings, and exterior stairwells in multilevel buildings to be equipped for assisted rescue during an emergency. In a fire or emergency evacuation, building occupants who cannot travel down the stairs or the elevator need a location to wait for assistance with two-way communication to first responders.
Code-Compliant AOR Solutions
All of our Area of Refuge products are designed and manufactured to comply with the International Building Code (IBC) system requirements, National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) codes, and Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) standards.
