Abstract

1403504 Escape shoots B F GOODRICH CO 6 Sept 1973 41981/73 Heading B7J An inflatable escape shoot assembly, e.g. for offshore oil platforms 11, comprises a shoot 10 of a fabric coated with an elastomer and multi-tubular in the shape of an X maintained by bulkheads 42, the upper end of the shoot being pivoted to an apron 13 of the platform and positioned by a tube 16, the shoot in its inflated state being resiliently retained laterally by upper straps 22 extending from a middle part of the shoot to the ends of laterally extending tripods on the pivot axis X-X of the shoot and lower straps 23 extending between the lower end of the shoot and middle parts of straps 22. In its stored condition the shoot is maintained in a plastics cover and is inflated to its in-use condition by compressed nitrogen in tank 49 connected to aspirator pumps located in the walls of the shoot. A separate reservoir of nitrogen inflates a raft 12 at the lower end of the shoot after the shoot is ninety percent inflated. A net 53 prevents the shoot moving under the platform. Inflatable supports 46, 47 retain the shoot stiff together with a fabric tension member 48, a liner 44 with an elastomeric coating providing a slide surface of unchanging co-efficient of friction with a high friction surface at shoots lower end.
