SigTEL Disabled Refuge System
Current Building Regulations insist all new non-domestic buildings with more than one storey provide ‘refuge’ areas – relatively safe places where people who cannot easily use fire escapes and evacuation lifts can call for assistance and wait until help arrives. Simple, effective two-way communication in these areas is essential, firstly to assist rescue teams in determining where assistance is required and secondly to reassure people help is on the way.
C-TEC’s SigTEL Emergency Voice Communication (EVC) System has been specifically designed to meet the rising demand for fully compliant BS 5839 Part 9 disabled refuge systems.

Larger SigTEL systems (16-128 Lines)
For systems requiring more than 64 lines, C-TEC manufactures a 16-128 line system (pictured right) which utilises the same Type A and Type B outstations as our Compact system. The larger system's control equipment comprises one CCU-16 16 line Master Control Unit and up to seven SCU-16 16 line Expansion Units. A separate ECU Desk Controller is also required to allow operators to communicate with the system’s outstations - click here for details.
DID YOU KNOW?
C-TEC also manufacture the UK's widest range of audio-frequency induction loop equipment for the hard of hearing. The Equality Act (formerly known as the Disability Discrimination Act) and current Building Regulations call for communication aids for the hearing impaired in many buildings and the installation of an induction loop system is one way many organisations can help meet this requirement. If a building requires a disabled persons toilet alarm, it could well benefit from an induction loop system too. Visit our induction loop systems product page for further information.
