Disabled WC Alarms
Crosby Intruder Alarms install the C-Tec NC951 Disabled Toilet Alarm System.
It is attractively designed, easy to install and simple to use and it allows a distressed person to raise an alarm in the event of an emergency. To operate, the user simply pulls the cord of a ceiling pull unit to activate a light and sounder outside the WC.
Tried, trusted and respected by users, the NC951 can help building managers and service providers comply with the requirements of BS8300, the Disability Discrimination Act, the Care Standards Act and the English Tourism Council’s National Accessibility Scheme.
The NC951 is also ideal for use as a single zone emergency assistance alarm in changing rooms, solariums, interview rooms and reception areas.
The Standard Kit consists of:
An NC942B Call Controller c/w onboard 12V PSU, a volume adjustable buzzer, a zonal alarm LED (to provide audible and visual indication of a call), a mute/reset button (for silencing or cancelling calls) and a volt-free relay with normally open, closed and common contacts rated at 30Vd.c. @ 1A. It also includes a 500mA battery back up facility that will continue to power the system for up to 24 hours standby and 15 minutes (alarm running time) in the event of mains failure. The controller’s label also includes Braille text for the benefit of visually impaired members of staff.
An NC809DBB Remote Reset Point c/w Sounder. Designed for use alongside the WC, the NC809DBB allows calls generated by the ceiling pull to be cancelled at source, i.e. inside the WC. It also features an on-board reassurance LED and sounder (to provide audible and visual indication of an alarm call inside the WC and to help reassure users that help is on its way). Like the call controller, the reset point’s label includes Braille text for ease of use by the visually impaired.
An NC807C Ceiling Pull incorporating a red confidence indicator (to reassure the user that a call has been made), a 3m cord and two red triangular pull bangles, specially designed for ease of use by the infirm. Note, for applications requiring more than one point of call (for example at the WC and the wash basin), up to three ceiling pulls can be daisychained together.
An NC806CS Overdoor Light c/w Sounder. Used to provide additional audible and visual indication of an alarm call outside the WC, the NC806CS features a series of ultra-bright LEDs in a triangular shaped diffuser making it highly visible from a distance. Usually located directly outside the WC above the door.
An NC949 Disabled WC Sticker, gloss finished in permanent vinyl featuring the universally recognisable Disabled WC symbol.
C-Tec also offer a Stainless Steel variant of the above. The Stainless Steel kit consists of a plastic NC807C Ceiling Pull and a variety of high quality brushed, Stainless Steel wall mountin accessories which makes this kit ideal for more prestigiuos locations. The images on the Stainless Steel Kit vary from the above.
