Disabled Refuge Call Systems

Disabled refuges now mandatory

Part M of the Building Regulations insists all new non-domestic buildings with more than one storey with lift access provide ‘refuge’ areas – relatively safe places where people who cannot use fire escapes. The Disabled Refuge range from Commfire Ltd can be used to call for assistance and wait until help arrives. Effective two-way full duplex 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. The disabled refuge system is designed to meet and exceed BS5839 Pt9.
