A second means of egress landmark

Fire escape drop-down ladders are mainly used as the last part of the landmark that have become typical fire escapes for medium-rise buildings in urban America (although they are also a popular stand-alone option of cage ladders).

They consist of a vertical sliding ladder placed at the bottom of a series of flights of either stairs, ladders, or shipladders - that are connected by access balconies placed at each evacuation level.

Used as a cheaper alternative to counterbalanced stairs when ground space is real estate gold, they are a good solution to prevent unwanted intrusions and to free ground space.
