Why do I need a disabled toilet alarm?
It can sometimes be very difficult for a disabled person to raise alarm in an emergency situation. This system can provide a solution to this problem, helping building managers and business owners to comply with the Disability Discrimination Act and Care Standards Act. We can supply kits or help you install our system which meets and exceeds BS83000.
How does a disabled toilet alarm work?
If the red cord is pulled an alarm is triggered, giving a signal outside of the WC with the use of a light and sounder. The system can then be reset at the flick of a switch. This system can also be useful in single zone emergency situations, such as in changing rooms, reception areas and interview rooms to ensure safety in isolated places where confrontation is a possibility.
An induction loop system helps those who use a hearing aid or loop listener to hear sounds more clearly because it reduces or cuts out background noise. We offer portable, desk-mounted and room-installed hearing impaired loop induction systems and can supply and install every aspect of the system to ensure everyone has equal opportunities. Call us on 01795 535 834 if you are in need of system components or to arrange a free survey.
So how do loop induction systems work?
Most hearing aids have a 'T' switch, allowing them to pick up the magnetic field generated by an induction loop system. When a person with a hearing aid is position in or near the loop, they will get the signal which will be converted by the hearing aid to suit the users specific requirements. This enables them to hear more clearly helping hearing impaired people to participate more effectively in general conversation, order goods and servies, listen to public performances etc.
The Hades Fire Protection Disabled Communication Refuge System is a communication system designed especially for use within a building which contains Refuge Areas. The system enables Fire Officers/Building Management to keep in contact throughout an emergency with these areas and is fully BS 5588 compliant.
In the event of a fire, or other emergency, staff evacuate wheelchair-restricted customers to a designated place of safety (Refuge Area). Staff then activate the Refuge Area Remote Unit, which lights a Refuge Occupied indicator on the main Control Panel. The Fire Officer (or Building Manager) is able to communicate with the occupants of the refuge areas, either on an individual basis or by using the ‘all-call’ option.
