All Crisis Emergency Voice Communication Systems (EVCS) are designed to comply fully with the requirements of BS5839-9:2011 for use as a disabled refuge system (DRS) with integrated Emergency Assist Alarm System. The Crisis Assist Call Accessible Bedroom kit provides a BS8300 compliant accessible bedroom solution including the “Acknowledge” signalling required for remote locations.

The accessible bedroom kit provides a simple solution integrating emergency assist alarm call systems within an EVCS, providing a single display point for all disabled calls within a building.

It can be used on a dedicated line, or may share a line with the Crisis Type B Refuge Outstation (as long as fire rated cable is used), where operation of the refuge point overrides the assistance call (ideal where a disabled toilet is adjacent to a refuge lobby).

When a call is made the over-door and cancel units emit a two tone siren with the ‘Halo’ flashing, when the call is acknowledged from the Crisis Master Station the ‘Halo’ on these units lights steadily and the tone double beeps every 15 seconds to reassure the caller help is on the way.

As the Assist Call Accessible Bedroom kit is connected to a Crisis Master Station and the plates and cables are fully monitored and battery backed as standard. The kit includes an over door, two cancel plates and three pull cord plate. They are supplied with a brushed stainless finish and a blue halo to aid location.

The Assist Call components are not supplied with back boxes as they can be used with any ‘MK’ style single back-box over 25mm deep. To accept cable glands the back box needs to be 35mm deep including metal clad surface types and plastic plasterboard liner boxes. The units should be mounted as shown below to comply with the requirements of Building Regulations Document M (Access for the Disabled) and BS8300:2009. When flush mounting use the back box manufacturers recommended cut out.
