Disabled Refuge

commEmergency Voice Communications Systems is the term used to describe Fire Telephones and Disabled Refuge Communications. These systems provide two-way communication during the evacuation of a building or other emergency. Fire telephones have been common in large buildings for use by the fire services for some time now, while disabled refuge communications systems are a more recent requirement under the Equal status Act 2000 – 2004, the Disability Act 2005 and the Building Regulations 2006.

Emergency Voice Communication Systems must comply with the requirements of BS5839 Part 9 2011 and BS9999 2008.
