All Crisis Emergency Voice Communication Systems (EVCS) are designed to comply fully with the requirements of BS5839-9:2011 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 during emergencies in high rise buildings or large sites where radio communication cannot be guaranteed to work due to interference from the fire corona.

Crisis EVC Remote Alarm Panel provides a compact and stylish solution when the Master Station is located within a non staffed area such as an entrance lobby. The panel provides an audible and visual indication of when the system is being used. It provides remote indication whenever an outstation is in use, or the assist call alarm is activated. The unit is connected to a Master Station through the In-use relay and requires a local mains supply.

The Remote Alarm Panel is not supplied with a back-box as it can be used with any ‘MK’ style double gang back-box over 32mm deep. To accept cable glands the back box needs to be 35mm deep including metal clad surface types and plastic plasterboard liner boxes. The unit should be placed in a permanently staffed area and in accordance with Building Regulations Document M (Access for the Disabled) and BS8300-2:2018 When flush mounting use the backbox manufacturers recommended cut out.
