Type B disabled refuge outstation for the Lexicomm EVC standalone and network systems.
A disabled refuge is a relatively safe space/ area within a building or staircase for mobility impaired occupants to call for assistance and wait until help arrives; allowing emergency services to assist them safely exit the building.
Lexicomm Emergency Voice Communications Systems (EVCS) are designed to fully comply with the requirements of BS 5839-9: 2021, for use as a fire telephone system (FT), disabled refuge system (DRS) or as a combined system when both fire telephones and disabled refuge call points are required.
An EVCS is a fixed, secure, bi-directional, full duplex voice communication system to assist fire fighters and management during emergencies in high rise buildings or large sites, where radio communication cannot be guaranteed to work due to interference from the fire plasma. The ViLX-OSB is a type B outstation exclusively for use as part of a disabled refuge system, it’s fully compatible with the Lexicomm standalone and network systems.
The outstation is constructed from injection moulded green polycarbonate and features a green flashing button to aid location. Operation is via a single call/ cancel button, pressing it once activates the call, a second press cancels the call. The outstation should be installed in the disabled refuge area which is usually located in a protected stairwell/ stair lobby.
