The tower circular escape apparatus based on the principle of escapement mechanism is introduced in the paper. The emergency evacuation device for fire trapped workers can be used in the place of frequent fire, hotels, office buildings, high-rise residential and stores, etc. The velocity of the principal axis can be controlled automatically by the escapement mechanism. The driving force of the escape apparatus comes from the gravity of the trapped workers. The experiment results show that the velocity of the device can be controlled on the operating range. The symmetrical structure can make more persons with different weight escape alternately and the velocity of descend approximate. In the research, the virtual prototype technology was used to analyse the kinematic characteristics of the mechanical system. The feasibility of the scheme design of mechanical system was proved with the simulation analysis results. The equipment has advantages of the structure is compact, safe and reliable, easy to use. The research of tower circular escape apparatus based on the principle of escapement mechanism can be regarded as the reference of the related research.
