Disabled refuge call range extended

The Refuge Call System from PEL Services has been extended with the addition of a new single zone version, designed for smaller premises, including retail outlets.

It is designed to offer an economical and simple solution to help building occupiers to comply with the Disability Discrimination Act and relevant standards BS9999 and BS5839 part 9. Instead of engaging in significant building restructuring to accommodate safe gradient evacuation slopes between floors for those unable to use stairs, these systems provide two way communication between identified refuge locations and the central station upon the ground floor.

Using a PEL Refuge Call System, disabled persons can alert the central station to their predicament by lifting the Refuge Call handset or activating a 'hands free' unit, which will be placed at key points throughout the building. This causes the relevant button on the control panel to light up and the master telephone to ring. When the master telephone is answered, normal two-way conversation takes place and appropriate action can be identified and taken.

In addition to the new single zone ‘one to one’ system, PEL Refuge Call control panels are available in four standard sizes, serving 16, 32, 48 or 64 remote locations. The modular system is able to accommodate up to 256 lines without the need for signal boosters on the line. If required, the control panel can be manufactured to allow remote locations to be indicated on a graphic of the building layout to simplify visual identification.
