Every false fire alarm is costly and disruptive to educational establishments. An avoidable amount of the tax payers’ money each year is wasted due to false fire alarm call outs from the public sector. A false alarm in a school results in inconvenient evacuations, affecting valuable teaching time by causing disruption amongst pupils and staff.
One solution to tackle false alarms is to install a polycarbonate cover which will easily retrofit over any existing call points, providing instant protection. Covers are available with an optional, localised alarm which will help to prevent malicious activation, a 96 dB siren will activate and draw immediate attention to the area and the culprit. Accidental false fire alarms (e.g.a call point hit by a ball in a sports hall) can easily be prevented by installing call point covers. They can also provide a level of weather protection from IP24 to IP56, ideal for use indoor or outdoor, such as outdoor sports areas or swimming pools.
Safety Technology’s newest call point protector, the Euro Stopper® Multi Kit has the extra benefit of a glow in the dark frame which creates a radiant glow around the MCP using Glow Guide pigment. This innovative pigment will release light for up to 8 hours in darkness or dimly lit areas and charges up after only 30 minutes exposure to natural or artificial light. It is essential for use in emergency situations where locating acall point is vital. The Multi Kit also allows the user to assemble the product in the way which best suits their application, with the choice of red or green housing shell, language, mounting option, sounder and breakseal facility.
