O2 Academy Venues throughout the UK Using Evac-Chair

With O2 Academy venues events attracting thousands of concert-goers, the chairs will ensure everyone can be safely evacuated in the event of an emergency. The chairs have been supplied by Evac+Chair International, the UK’s leading evacuation specialist and will benefit individuals with physical disabilities, pregnant women and the elderly, amongst others.


O2 Academies have designated areas for disabled persons which will be significantly enhanced by the addition of Evac+Chair products. An Academy Music Group representative said:

This is part of our continued development to ensure the safety of our patrons within our venues. Evac+Chair is the best for our needs, and the company ensured we had the correct chairs at each location.

Mark Wallace, managing director of Evac+Chair International said: ÔÇ£We’re delighted to have helped facilitate the means for safe evacuation within O2 Academy venues throughout the UK.ÔÇØ

Evac+Chair International has also worked with other high profile venues such as Reading FC, Twickenham FC and the Yas Marina Motorsport Circuit in Abu Dhabi, helping them to comply with legislation and demonstrate that health and safety considerations are being taken seriously.

O2 Academies that have installed Evac+Chair products in their arenas are as follows:
