Below are examples of how this product helps with on scene response times
The first homes dormer windows lead to an open non-connected small attic space. The second homes dormer windows actually lead to a playroom currently being used as a nursery. As one can see identical looking homes from the street but completely different layouts inside; firefighters could waste valuable seconds laddering this window to find it leads to an attic space or worse yet, might assume since it's located above the garage, doesn't lead to any room; therefore, not laddering at first glance.
The first home shows a LadderStop decal to inform firefighters to not ladder the window because it leads to open space since it is a cathedral. The second home, of the same exterior build, actually has a room in that location because it is a loft for a office area. On scene, firefighters would not want to ladder and use this window in home one since it leads down open into the first floor foyer, therefore wasting time or even worse entering a window that would lead to a fall and or injury.
The last photo is a window broken and laddered from the outside which lead into an open space since this window was designed for decor and outdoor lighting purposes only. After breaking this window, a firefighter would realize there is not a floor present and need to climb down and reposition to another window.
