1 – 64 line emergency voice communication system

For most people, a simple instruction like “please leave the building by the nearest available exit” can be acted upon quickly and easily. But for wheelchair users, the disabled and infirm, this isn’t always the case.

Current Building Regulations recognise this and insist all new non-domestic buildings with more than one storey provide ‘refuge’ areas – relatively safe places where people who cannot easily use fire escapes and evacuation lifts can call for assistance and wait until help arrives.

Simple, effective two-way communication in these areas is essential, firstly to assist rescue teams in determining where assistance is required and secondly to reassure people help is on the way.

Communication systems in refuge areas are known as Emergency Voice Communication (EVC) Systems and SigTEL is suitable for use in all types of EVC application – be it a disabled refuge, fire telephone or stadium marshalling system.

Incredibly easy to use and offering true duplex speech, SigTEL meets and exceeds the requirements of standards such as BS 5839 Part 9 in all areas and is hugely cost-effective in comparison to other systems on the market.

The range comprises two wall-mounting master controllers (the ECU-4 and ECU-8 which can handle 4 and 8 lines respectively) and an eight line expansion unit, the ECU-8S. Typically located in a building’s control room or fire services access point, the ECU-4 and ECU-8 allow management and/or the fire services to communicate via a telephone-style handset with the system’s ‘outstations’. Two types of outstation are available (Type A and Type B).
