How Does the Disabled Bathroom Toilet Alarm System Work?
The way it works is quite simple. The pull cord incorporates a transmitter, that when pulled sends an alert directly to the emergency call alarm. When the emergency call alarm receives an alert, it will sound an alarm and a visible flashing light that will alert all people who are nearby.
Why Should I Trust the Disabled Bathroom Alarm System?
The Disabled Alarm System is designed to meet all international standards relating to the disabled and alarms. It also adheres to government recommendations by creating a barrier-free environment that is visible and audible, ideal for ensuring that the user's call for assistance is instantly recognised.
Why Are There Two Different Alarms?
When you install the system, you'll find that the pull cords can be set to two different colours. The white means that the user needs help, whereas the red means that the user is in an emergency. This allows you to differentiate between the different types of assistance that the user might need.
What is the Range of the Wireless Pull Cord Disabled Bathroom Alarm System?
The full range of the Wireless Disabled System is 50 metres, which is ideal for public centres and care facilities where a carer or medically trained member of staff may be a distance away from the bathroom. We will always recommend that you test the alarm system before using, however the FAR transmission properties should be useful for most buildings.
The actual pull cord itself is three metres long. This means that it should be able to hand from the ceiling and reach to around one metre from the floor. This means that it is easily reachable for most users including the elderly and children.
How Loud is the Wireless Pull Cord Toilet Alarm System?
You can have confidence that the system will work because it offers both a visual LED display and an audible alert, meaning that you should notice that the alarm has been triggered even if your head is turned away from the alarm or if you're wearing earphones. The actual audible alarm is adjustable with the volume reaching as loud as 90dB - that's roughly the equivalent of a motorcycle passing you on the road, or a lawn mower in your garden!
How Many Pull Cords Can the System Incorporate?
The Wiress Pull Cord System can be used with single or multiple pull cord systems. This is ideal for institutions with more than one disabled bathroom, including supermarkets, care homes and large businesses.
How Many Strobe Lights Can the System Incorporate?
Should it be necessary, then the Wireless Pull Cord System can be used with several strobe lights and multiple pull cord systems. This is ideal for larger businesses, supermarkets and more.
Will the Wireless Pull Cord Bathroom and Toilet Alarm System Penetrate Through a Floor?
In many institutions the bathroom may be on a different floor to the people who can offer the appropriate level of care, especially in public institutions such as shopping centres and supermarkets. While we would recommend testing your Alarm System first, you should be able to retain use as long as the transmitter and alarm is located relatively close to one another. The alarm system has a full range of around 50 metres, perfect for large institutions.
Is the Wireless Pull Cord Bathroom System Waterproof?
We recognise that using the Bathroom System in a bathroom could mean that water may come into contact with the transmitter and pull cord. It has been designed with this in mind meaning that both the pull cord and transmitter are completely waterproof.
