Fire escape ladder going past window

I would like to use a fire escape ladder from a second floor bedroom window. There is a window on the floor just underneath. Will this not break when I climb down? Has anybody used a ladder in the same situation?

Hi Garry

You are of course right, the rungs or their standoffs will push against the window. I have tried a few of the ladders in a similar situation myself and the rungs did not cause the glass of the windows to break. If you are very concerned about this you could choose a semi-rigid fire escape ladder where the ladder does not sway as much and the rungs will not press against the window.
