Disabled refuge alarm systems for schools, hospitals and more

For many types of public building, it is now a legal requirement to install a two-way communication system at disabled refuge points (AKA area of refuge points). This allows for constant communication between the emergency services and those waiting for assistance.

Our disabled refuge alarm systems provide an instant voice link to emergency personnel, helping to facilitate safe evacuation, and allowing the waiting parties to raise the alarm if necessary.

For the last three decades, we’ve built a reputation for our high-quality safety and security solutions. Our installers have helped schools, hospitals, care homes and many other public sector organisations keep their property and people safe. 

Disabled refuge alarms – designed to meet impeccable safety standards

Our area of refuge systems are designed and installed to the highest standards. Our standards.

All our disabled refuge technology meets British Standard BS 5839-9 – the code of practice for the design, installation and maintenance of emergency voice communication systems.

But we’ve built our business on safety and quality. So we go above and beyond to ensure our disabled refuge systems provide you with years of reassuring reliability.

Some of our fire detection systems, for example, are still fully operational 15 years after installation.

What’s more, we’re fully BAFE registered, hold the NSI Gold accreditation, and are members of the BSIA

Disabled refuge points and the Disability Discrimination Act

The Disability Discrimination Act 1995 made it mandatory for public sector organisations to provide areas of refuge within their buildings. These areas provide a safe waiting area for those who cannot leave the building by traditional means – for example, if lifts are shut down during a fire.

Our engineers will be happy to explain the terms of the Disability Discrimination Act to you, and help you install an area of refuge communication system that meets all requirements.

We’ve helped public sector institutions with safety regulations since 1986.

Whether you need an emergency voice communication system for a school, council property or any other public building.
