Safe Disabled Refuge Systems

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 then able to communicate with the occupants of the refuge areas.

Our C-TEC cost-effective and easy-to-install SigTEL system is designed to meet the demand for BS 5839 Part 9 compliant disabled refuge, fire telephone and stadium marshaling systems. Current Building Regulations insist all new non-domestic buildings with more than one storey provide ‘refuge’ areas – safe places where people who cannot easily use fire escapes and evacuation lifts can call for assistance and wait until help arrives. SigTEL provides simple, effective two-way communication in these areas to assist rescue teams in determining where assistance is required and to reassure people help is on the way. It can also be used by trained personnel in sports stadia etc to help ensure the orderly evacuation of people in an emergency.
