    Default DOT approved emergency escape hatch - where can I get it?

    I've searched this forum and the web but I cannot find any website that sells DOT approved escape hatches. Please help me to find one.

    Thanks.

    Smile Escape hatches

    Try the American Bus Association or the United Motorcoach Association.

    brandon1: Thanks. Do you know which ones are typically used in the limos like the Escalade or Hummer?

    i have no idea, im sure someone else on here can answer that as i only have buses. but if you think about it you will at least want a low profile one because the regular ones stick up a few inches and on a limo it might stick out like a sore thumb.

    We have one like the one pictured on the website schoolbusparts.com on the escalade. It doesn't stick up too far to be offensive as far as asthetics. But it isn't as easy to deal with when washing the top and drying it. Our hummer came from the builder with a escape hatch similar to a sun/moon roof that is flush with the top of the limo and it's much easier to wash and dry. It's prettier inside as well. The coach builder is out of biz, so can't help you with contact or manufacturer, other than I heard they moved their operation to Las Vegas under a different name. I'm sure the coach builders could help you with this.

    Default Where did you find it? Do you have a pic or pics of it installed?

    Hello,

    I have the same problem, finding an escape hatch or door for a Hummer Limo. What did you find and where? Do you have any pictures you could share?

    Thanks!

    I bought one at West Marine. There is usually one in each city.
