Escape from a Dangerous House Fire with This Strong, Durable Ladder
Fire is a serious threat to every household; it can strike anywhere, any time. The frightening truth is that in 2005, there were nearly 381,000 home fires in the U.S., resulting in over 16,000 casualties. Because of the very real threat of fire, it is vital that every household uses tools for fire protection. When used in conjunction with smoke alarms and fire extinguishers, and as part of an overall fire-escape plan, the EL52-2 is an effective last-resort tool to help you and your family safely exit a dangerous situation.

Tough Nylon/Steel Construction, Anti-Slip Rungs, and Secure Hooks
Exceptionally durable, this ladder is tested to American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) standards. Featuring strong nylon/steel construction and measuring 14-feet in length, the EL52-2 provides a dependable means of escape through a second-floor window during a home fire.

This ladder is easy to set up and is strong enough to help both children and adults quickly exit to safety. It arrives fully assembled and ready to use in one minute. Extra-wide hooks secure the ladder to any windowsill measuring at least 20-inches (51 centimeters) wide and 32-inches (81 centimeters) high with a sill width between a minimum of 6-inches (15 centimeters) and a maximum of 13-inches (33 centimeters).

The ladder's slip-resistant, epoxy-coated rungs provide sure footing, and steel stabilizers on each rung help keep your feet steady and balanced, preventing the rungs from swaying as you step on or off of them. For added stability, DuPont Cordura nylon strapping lends extra strength and durability, while steel construction tested to 1,125 pounds means this ladder holds up to 375 pounds at a time.

The EL52-2 comes with a six-year limited warranty.

We tried this ladder and it works well. It is not pleasant crawling out a 2nd story window but this ladder performs well after you do. It's easy to deploy with a strap holding the rungs together until mounted. You open the big velcro strap to let them fall. The rubber feet seem less likely to damage the wall or cut through siding than the sharp metal standoffs on some other ladders. There was no warning about one-time use on this ladder so we practiced. This is critical to both test the function and become familiar with it before any emergency use. With some strap refolding I got it back into the strap and original box cleanly.

Very cheap protection against being trapped by a fire.

Consumers need to purchase the right ladder for their windowsill. I had to return the two-story ladder for a 3-story ladder because my windowsill depth was wider than the 2-story could accommodate. The EL52 First Alert Fire Escape Ladder user's manual says, "The window should be at least 20 inches (51 cm) wide and 32 inches (81 cm) high to give you enough clearance to exit safely. The windowsill width should be between a minimum of 6 inches (15 cm) and a maximum of 10 inches (25 cm). Measure windowsill from outside to inside." Be sure to get the right ladder for your windowsill depth.

Once the owners manual was read it became clear this would not work on our colonial style home. The manual indicates the need for a flat surface with no windows or other obstructions under the window in which you would place the ladder. In our case, the 2nd story overhangs a foot or two from the 1st story, problem #1. There are also windows directly below the windows on the 2nd story, problem #2, which are an issue even if the house was flush/flat all the way down. The idea is the ladder needs a flat surface to rest against when climbing down. If it hits a window, it could break the glass and cause injuries. In a fire, I'd risk that, but with our overhang, we have the added issue of no flat surface to rest against meaning the ladder would dangle once you get out of the 2nd story window. The only other possible windows each have a "bay" window below which again won't allow a flush/flat surface to have the ladder rest upon. As far as the quality, it appears great. In my opinion, better than the other leading brand.

The description on the Amazon website says it will fit walls 6 inches to 13 inches thick. This is not true for the 2-story ladder. The widest the ladder can open is 10 inches, as correctly reported in one of the prior reviews. The instructions included with the ladder also say the maximum thickness is 10 inches. If the wall is 10 inches thick, the ladder will likely not work, either, since it probably won't hang right. In order to hang as shown in the picture, the wall can only be 9 inches thick. Measure the thickest part of your wall including interior and exterior sills. If you have a brick house, the ladder likely will not work. My wall was 12 inches, and the ladder cannot reach around it. Otherwise, it looked well-made.

Size: Two-Story Verified Purchase
This is not a good escape ladder for kids. We have a 6 year old daughter who was not strong enough to lift this heavy ladder up to the window, unfold the cumbersome hooks, and then throw the ladder part out the window. It is hard and awkward even for an adult to do this let alone a child.

Once the ladder is hooked on the window sill, you have to lean waaayyy out the window to pull the release tab, risking falling out the window to do this, especially if you are a vertically challenged.

Once you pull the tab, the ladder is supposed to neatly fall to the ground without getting caught up on itself. Wrong. The ladder gets so tangled that it would require you to go 4 or 5 steps down, untangle, go 4 more steps, untagle, etc.

I do not recommend this ladder.

We purchased this Fire Escape Ladder from Amazon a few weeks ago. We opened it up to test it and found out that the ladder has no locking mechanism. You can try to secure it as much as possible, but it still slides up and pulls out. If you always have someone strong enough to hold the ladder in the window, you may be fine, but in a fire everyone needs to get out. This is NOT SAFE. Our windowsill was 6" and within the compatible range. We called First Alert and they offered no product support, but just said to return it. We did, but now what are we to do?

We also attempted to leave feedback on the First Alert website, but not even that works.

The ladder seems sturdy enough, but it is very difficult to deploy even with practice. There are a few significant problems:

1- It's too heavy for someone under 12 to lift out the window.

2- Even if tightly packed, the rungs fall out of the velcro strap and tangle unless you lift it straight up by both sill clips, which is impossible if the child can barely lift it at all. Once tangled, the ladder is almost useless without a complete stretch-out and re-pack. Even a teen could not repack it easily, it takes about 5 minutes and some patience for an adult to re-pack.

3- The feet on the rungs often get wrapped up in the straps and, if so, cannot be shaken loose from above

4- The bolts that hold the straps to the sill hooks get caught on the outter window frame/screen holder. That makes the hooks appear to be clamped but they will likely break loose under weight.

5- If you get the ladder out the window and hooked onto the sill properly, the velcro rung release strap hangs too low for a child to reach. It's not that easy to reach even for an adult. Deploying the ladder before it is hooked to the sill causes the rungs to fall out the window and either take the hooks with it - ladder gone - or worse, if the child is holding the hooks, pull the child out the window.

If you can get it deployed properly, it seems sturdy enough. But the feet on each rung don't contact the brick wall of my house even where the windows seem flush. Maybe they would make contact under weight.

All things considered, there are way too many points of failure for emergency gear unless it is for adult use.
