Disabled Communication Refuge Systems
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.
Each activated refuge system has an auto listening facility to monitor activity in the Refuge Area. As each disabled person is moved to safety, the system can be reset via a key operated switch on the Refuge Area Remote Unit.
Our engineers will assess the building in the way of a site visit with the help of the building drawings and your current Risk Assessment. Once this information is gathered they can decide whether a Disabled Refuge System is necessary and what variation of system is required if so.
The aim of Hades Fire Protection is to leave all customers with peace of mind that building occupants will be safe in an emergency and that the procedures in place are compliant with current laws and regulations.
