Disabled WC Alarms

The alarm systems installation must be positioned in accordance with the standard for instance the alarm pull cord needs to be sited within easy reach and operable from two levels. Systems include multi and single zone, stylish double gang call controller, ceiling pull, overdoor light c/w sounder and reset point c/w sounder. The systems allow distressed people to raise an alarm in the event of an emergency thus alerting staff to ensure help is on the way.
Current Building Regulations require all new non-domestic buildings with more than a single storey to provide ‘refuge’ areas. A refuge area is a safe place where people who may have difficulty using fire escapes can call for assistance and wait until help arrives. In the event of a fire or emergency, disabled people are evacuated to the refuge area where a communication device is available to speak to building management or the fire brigade. GW Power are experienced in the design, installation and commissioning of disabled refuge systems which enable two-way voice communication between a refuge area and building control.
