What Our Clients Say

I purchased a 16′ Modum Fire Escape Ladder from Safer Escape and installed it on my home in Yonkers, New York. After being rescued from a fire when I was 3 years old, having this ladder available outside my window is a huge peace of mind.
This ladder is really easy to install and operate and it is smaller than a downpipe. Barry Mezei and his son Aaron were gentlemen to deal with.
As a contractor I hope to be installing these ladders for my clients and friends into the future.

Gerry O’Reilly

White Plains, NY

I’m very safety conscious and when I heard about the Safer Escape ladder I was immediately interested. Barry and Aaron were very accommodating and made the whole process simple. I would definitely recommend both the product and the company for anyone who cares about the safety of their family.

Greg Miller

Clifton NJ

I am super happy with my purchase of 2 Safer Escape ladders. I am 100% satisfied with all aspects of my dealings with the company and the peace of mind in knowing that my family is protected in case the worst happens.

Yishai P.

Passaic, NJ

I bought the Safer Escape ladder because I have married children who sleep in my attic with very young kids, and I was concerned if there was a fire they wouldn’t have a way out. I previously owned the throw away ladders but how would a young child be able to use it in an emergency? The Safer Escape ladder is extremely easy to use, the installation was quick and the entire buying process was a breeze. I highly recommend this product!

Audrey Gordon

Passaic, NJ

I have two small children a 4 and 3 year old and was skeptical as to how they would get down the ladder in the event of an emergency. But, after just 3 times up and down they were climbing by themselves, ready just in case. It’s easy to use and the harness is an amazing invention to prevent someone from falling. I’d recommend Safer Escape ladders to all my friends and neighbors in a heartbeat. It’s a necessity, and the next step in family safety.

Moe M.

We had the most pleasant experience with Safer Escape! The people at Safer Escape are really concerned about your safety! They gave us excellent advice about installing quality fire alarms around our home and about setting up a safe meeting place in case of a fire. They made us feel very confident that we were getting a quality fire escape ladder, which indeed was the case. They were friendly and a pleasure to deal with! We highly recommend their products!

Marc Lieberman

We highly recommend purchasing a fire escape ladder from Safer Escape. They went above and beyond to make sure that we were comfortable and happy with our purchase. The ladder is top quality and very sturdy. They recommended a color that blends so well with our house, you don’t even notice it’s there. From beginning to end, the Mezei father and son team were a pleasure to deal with.

Faige Erez

Passaic, NJ

I tried out the ladder and it was so easy to open and I felt completely safe climbing down it. I can get from my house with the window closed to the ground in under 30 seconds, and that is that is very important when every second counts. This ladder will save lives and is a must for every homeowner with more than a one story home.
