OmniCare Disabled Refuge/Fire Alarm Systems
Fire regulations require commercial buildings above one storey provide a safe evacuation route and disabled refuge for the disabled, wheelchair users and anyone else who cannot easily use fire escapes, lifts and stairs during a fire or other emergency.
Legal requirements state that a disabled refuge must have a fireproof two-way communication system, to BS 5839 Part 8-9 standard, so that fire officers, fire wardens and building managers can keep in contact with any disabled people in the refuge.
Disabled refuge outstations from the OmniCare range come in a choice of styles – standard or advanced. Outstations (or ‘remotes’) on the OmniCare system are wired in a loop configuration. For systems used for ‘fire fighting’ fire rated enhanced four-core cable should be used.
Also available in the range is the combined unit which features a disabled refuge remote and fire telephone in one housing.
To avoid hoax calls, the disabled refuge remotes stay ‘in standby’ unless the master panel is triggered by the fire panel in an emergency. Remotes can be set to be permanently active if preferred.
