A Trusted Deaf Fire Warning System
MDH Wireless offer effective deaf fire alarm warning systems across the UK. Our deaf fire alarm broadens the effectiveness of an existing fire alarm system by enabling pocket receivers (dedicated “pagers”) to react to an alarm condition over a larger area.
A qualified fire engineer connects this system to your existing Fire Alarm panel, so you can ensure instant protection for deaf and hard of hearing people within your organisation.
How Does a Wireless Deaf Fire Alarm Warning System Work?
A wireless deaf fire alarm warning system works with a transmitter which is usually fixed on the wall, usually near the fire panel or an I/O unit on the fire loop. A volt-free contact from the fire panel (or I/O unit) is connected to the transmitter. In the event of a fire or evacuation alarm, the relay opens, and the transmitter starts to broadcast out messages.
The pre-set message or location ID which are broadcast out by the alarm system is picked up by vibrating pagers, carried by deaf staff or deaf visitors enabling prompt onsite action to be taken.
Different fire zones can be supported by the system, and different messages broadcast accordingly.
This system is BS compliant, conforms with DDA requirements and features an EN54-4 battery-backed power supply. This system is connected directly to the fire alarm panel, which needs to be undertaken by a fully qualified fire engineer.
