Fire Escape Ladder to Hobro Friskole in Denmark

Hobro Friskole in Denmark is a small community school located in the beautiful city of Hobro in the northern region of Jutland in Denmark.

The school is fortunate to reside in a Classic villa from 1920.

Since the School's inauguration in 1999, the villa has been a focal point for the activities in the school.




The Dean has been on the lookout for a fire escape ladder for a while, but the preservation of building’s exterior was a priority as well as budget contains.

The traditional spindle ladders are bulky, they are expensive and a spindle ladder would tarnish the exterior of the villa. 

The space in the yard is limited - and the school needed a compact solution.

The optimal solution was a foldable Fire Escape Ladder to be permanently mounted on the wall, with easy reach from the 2nd-floor balcony in case of an emergency.
“We asked for the top section of the MODUM Fire Escape Ladder is painted yellow to match the colour of the villa, and to keep the lower part in Aluminium silver to match the grey socket.” - Søren Tordrup, Dean at Hobro Friskole.

“It took a couple of hours to install the Foldable Escape Ladder.
The villa has an angular socket, so we had to use an adjustable bracket to establish a safe and sturdy installation.”
- Esben Nørlem, the carpenter who installed the ladder.
“The two-toned villa and the angular socket was the only challenges with the project. However, MODUM can deliver Foldable Escape Ladders in any RAL colour, and we have adjustable brackets to fit any building, so we were happy to accept the challenge” - Henrik Vester, MODUM ApS.
