The 2018 Ryder Cup took place at Le Golf National, Paris, France between 25th-30th September. Renowned as one of Golfing’s major events, this competition takes place every two years between all-male teams from Europe and the USA. It is watched on television across the globe by millions. Established in 1927, it was initially an event purely between Britain and the United States before extending its membership to continental Europe in 1979.
Leading Evacuation Chair manufacturer, Evacusafe (UK) Ltd, we chosen as the preferred “safe exit for all” solution for all hospitality buildings. The company’s best-selling Excel Chair was selected to be used at the venue during the event, and this wasn’t for the first time. The Excel model was selected ahead of all competitor products, with a full demonstration and training provided by Evacusafe’s French Partner Axsol.
Director of Evacusafe, Mr Tony Gill, said “Evacusafe works closely with a number of major sporting events throughout the year and provides emergency exit solutions once a full site assessment has taken place. This ensures the needs of all attendees, volunteers and staff members are catered for in the event of an emergency. We are always delighted when our equipment is chosen by the responsible Facilities Management team for such a prestigious event. Our brand has become incredibly strong and is now well and truly established in the sporting world, which of course we feel very proud”.
Having a safe means of escape in place for everyone is a legal requirement for venues that host all kinds of public events, as well as a moral obligation of course. The Excel Chair is designed to provide a safe exit, including down stairways, for people who suffer from impaired mobility. The company is glad to report that the 2018 Ryder Cup went extremely well without any requirement for the chairs to be used.
