What is a disabled refuge?

A disabled refuge is a relatively safe temporary waiting area, located within a building to aid the evacuation of all people as safely as possible.

The disabled refuge area allows building management and emergency services to assist all people out of a building in the event of an emergency. BS5839-9:2011 states an Emergency Voice Communication system or a Disabled Refuge System is a; “System that allows voice communication in either direction between a central control point and a number of other points throughout a building or building complex, particularly in a fire emergency situation.” 

Our innovative system, Refuge Alerter, allows two-way voice communication at all times through our advanced Refuge Outstations, our touch screen or push-button Master Stations and our handheld portable refuge communicators (PRC).
