Disabled Refuge

A disabled refuge or fire refuge is an area within a building that is designed as a safe location where a person unable to use the stairs unaided can wait in relative safety until they can be assisted in their evacuation. Refuges are normally located in or adjacent to a protected staircase which is used as a fire exit route. A disabled refuge EVC (emergency voice communication) system is the equipment that provides the means of communication between the disabled refuges and the control room. It is an intercom system with special features to increase usability and reliability in the event of an emergency.

Outstations

A typical system comprises one or more outstations located in refuges, a master station for use by staff / fire fighters and control equipment. Refuge stations are located in refuges and used to call for assistance. Outstations are typically simple to operate, with a single button to call for assistance.

Systems for all types of building

All of our disabled refuge systems offer keyed enabled switches, integral fault monitoring, automatic audio path testing, and battery backed power supplies providing at least 24 hours of standby and 30 minutes of operation.

For smaller sites, we offer our cost effective compact system whereby all system control equipment, PSUs and standby batteries are built into our fire panel sized master stations. For larger sites, we offer our more flexible standard system. With more outstation stations, customisable vandal resistant master stations for exposed areas, additional cabling options, remote monitoring interfaces, etc. 


I have worked with PFAS for a number of years and would highly recommend them to any prospective clients. Not only do they provide an excellent installation service but they always go the extra mile to ensure customer needs are met and we are kept updated with enhancements in technology and equipment. Jodie and Chris have also proven to be reliable and conscientious when responding to emergencies and understanding the nature of our business. I would be reluctant to use anyone other than Panoramic.

We were burgled in February, I could not face being at home as I was so shocked. Panoramic Fire and Security came and fitted burglar alarms and security cameras. We feel so secure now. The guys who came to install were brilliant, they were so skilled at their work and took pride in what they were doing. The after care service is second to none, we had a fault and as we are connected up to police response we were called to check if all was ok. I can highly recommend the company, they are skilled, tidy and pleasant workers. Thank you Panoramic Security for making our house back into a home.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and your team for the outstanding services you have provided for us over the last 4 years. It has been both pleasure and also a huge relief, knowing that your guys were always literally at the end of the phone 24/7 should they be needed.
