Fire escapes when properly maintained should last as long as the building itself. Like any exterior component, a fire escape is exposed to the nature’s elements, and because it is typically made of metal, it’s subject to rust and deterioration.

East Coast Fire Escapes repairs and maintains all types of fire escape structures, including:

  • Ladder repair (counter-balanced, hydraulic, torque and sliders)
  • Staircase cantilevers repair and re-balanced
  • Accidental hits
  • Scrape and painting (all sizes)
  • Violations removal
  • Fire escapes yearly maintenance plans
  • Load Test

Fire escape services and repairs are our specialty. Repairs are routinely needed to ensure that your fire escape is functional. Sometimes stairs and brackets must be repaired or painted. Because proper repair is necessary for certification, we always ensure that your fire escape is repaired correctly and safely.

With yearly service a fire escape structrure can last more than 20 years and possibly save lives. Without proper service they won’t work, causing a dangerous situation. Furthermore, most insurance companies require yearly service of the insured building’s safety equipment as also suggested by the technicians themselves.


We will remove loose paint and carefully prime all bear mental before painting. Properly preparing a surface for paint and using the best quality paints and materials not only ensure a better end result, but also can help extend the longevity of your paint job.
