Fire Resistant doors close off the areas of refuge. Two areas of refuge on every floor can each accommodate approximately six to eight people using wheelchairs. There is a direct connection from the areas of refuge to the fire stairs. Each area of refuge has evacuation chairs and a two way communication systems. Should the power fail, back-up generators support each elevator and evacuation chairs enable wheelchair users to be evacuated via the stair if necessary.
