Course Overview

Current building regulations insist all new non-domestic buildings with more than one storey provide refuge areas – relatively safe places where people who cannot easily use fire escapes or evacuation lifts can call for assistance and wait until help arrives. Effective, two-way voice communication between these areas and a manned control room is essential.

This hour-long CPD certified seminar explains in simple terms where and why such systems are required and how to design and install a system that complies with BS 5839-9.

It covers:- system categories; standards and regulations; criteria and location of disabled refuge and fire telephone ‘outstations’; mandatory requirements of BS 5839-9; what you need to know before specifying/installing an EVC system.
