Disabled Refuge



SigTEL comprises a range of low-cost wall-mounting Controllers which can handle 4 or 8 lines (dependent on the model purchased). Typically located in a building’s control room or a fire services access point, each Controller allows management and/or the emergency services to communicate via telephone-style handsets with the system’s ‘outstations’. For larger systems, an 8 line expansion unit allows systems of up to 12 or 16 lines to be easily implemented. An optional network communication card can be used to interlink up to four Master Controllers for systems of up to 64 lines.

Sigtel disabled refuge & fire telephone outstations

Two types of outstation are available - Type B (handsfree intercom-style) outstations for disabled refuge applications and Type A (telephone-style) outstations for fire telephone and/or stadium marshalling applications. Both versions offer high quality, full duplex speech and connect to a SigTEL ECU-4 or ECU-8 Controller (or 8 line expansion unit) using two cores of 1.5mm2 of enhanced fire rated cable of up to 1 KM in length.

Sigtel Accessories

A range of cost-effective accessories specifically designed for use with SigTEL. The range incorporates a programming configurator (to speed up the naming/editing of extensions), a battery-operated line tester (to simplify installation and commissioning), a blue and amber strobe (to provide visual indication of an incoming call), an audio-frequency induction loop system (to assist the hard of hearing) and a disabled persons toilet alarm system (to allow communication to take place in accessible toilet areas).


Toilet Alarms

C-TEC's market-leading NC951 Disabled Persons Toilet Alarm kit includes everything required for a BS8300 clause compliant emergency assistance alarm (except cables and fixings). Attractively designed, easy to install and simple to use, it allows a distressed person to raise an alarm in the event of an emergency. To operate, the user simply pulls the cord of a ceiling pull unit to activate a light and sounder outside the WC.

Fire and life safety detection evolution has in recent years been characterised by increasingly sophisticated sensing seeking to defeat false alarms through discrimination between ‘false’ and ‘real’ stimuli. This has been accompanied by the advent of multi (or combined) sensors comprising independent (and/or inter dependent) technologies...
