Training Escape Chutes

International Safety & Supply is a global Supplier of custom designed

Escape chute systems manufactured by  Survitec/Risk Safety Systems in Houston, Tx USA.


Training Chutes play an important role in providing practical experience and training for all personnel who work or visit an offshore rig, platform or installation.  


International Safety & Supply provides training chutes to customers who use them to train their employees in the proper way of evacuating a rig utilizing an Offshore Escape Chute System, as well as offering train the trainer programs.  


We also provide Training Chutes to Companies worldwide that offer USCG & OPITO approved BOSIET  (Basic Offshore Safety Induction & Emergency Training) courses which is the minimum standard that is required for entrants to the Oil and Gas Industry.  The chutes are usually  installed on a platform over the training pool used for HUET (Helicopter Underwater Egress Training).


We offer two types of Training Chutes which are commonly used in offshore applications:  

Netted Zig Zag Style Chute           -           Three 3 Layered Chute

                                  Variable Height Applications                                       Fixed Height Applications


Training Chutes are custom designed to meet the height requirements of each customer.  OPITO states that chute should be between 3.5M and 7M in length.  Our Netted Zig Zag chute is constructed in 4’ sections therefore we can offer 12’ - 16’ - 20’ - 24’ lengths or longer if the application requires it.

Vertical Kevlar netted Zigzag style Escape Chute

with stainless steel retaining bands:


Single layered Netted Kevlar constructed vertical escape chute, the chute is supplied as a continuous chute with stainless steel bands sewn into each 4ft section.


Each section has a Kevlar slide; these are opposing on each section and provide a zigzag effect. At the rear of each zigzag is an exit hatch designed to allow evacuees to exit through any section.


Each 4ft section has a qty of 4 x 4500Ib Kevlar ropes; these provide additional support for each section and the overall chute column. Each section is interconnected with stainless steel connectors providing additional strength. The netted chute has a dead weight capacity of 2 ton.


Each 4ft section has a side compartment for egress and provides the required adjustable height evacuation point. This chute is designed to operate at varying heights for vessels with changes in ballast levels or locations prone to high wave conditions.



Vertical Three Layered Escape Chute:


Three way Protection—The escape chute consists of three layers. The outer layer is of a material that will not ignite.  The middle layer helps to regulate the speed of decent, inner layer reduces friction.


Layer 1-Outside Layer-Flameproof Layer is there to protect you from flames and radiated heat, this layer can withstand a constant temperature of 660 Deg “C”, and starts to melt at  800 Deg “C”.


Layer 2: The Middle Layer - Breaking Layer- This layer has a series of stainless steel coiled springs sewn into the material, these springs have a small diameter.  As you travel through them they restrict you, but not hold you.   The chute user will place pressure on the chute’s interior wall with their legs and arms, the more pressure they apply, the more they  slow, less pressure and they will speed up.


Layer 3: The Inner Layer - Support Layer -  This is the layer that is connected to the storage/deployment device, and holds the chute in place.  It can withstand the dead weight load of 5 tons.

Just sit on the edge, with your legs in the chute and feel it grip you.  Slide forward and lower yourself to waist level , spread your legs, and slowly lower yourself fully into the chute.  By applying and releasing pressure against the interior wall of the chute, with your arms and legs, You control the speed of decent.






Each 4ft section has a qty of 4 x 4500Ib Kevlar ropes; these provide additional support for each section and the overall chute column. Each section is interconnected with stainless steel connectors providing additional strength.
