Commend VR Experience - Security and Communication

6 Jun 2017

The Challenge

Commend UK supplied a disabled Evacuation and Refuge Intercom System to Brunel University. The solution was programmed to allow the many types of buildings spread over many acres to be evacuated quickly and efficiently within accordance to the Universities procedures. Most government buildings, including colleges and universities, are more than two storeys high, making it difficut for people with disabilities to evacuate quickly. British Standard 5588-8 states that “a basic tenet of building law is that access provision has to be complemented by egress provision...”, i.e. if people with disabilities are able to get into a building, then a route for escape must be provided, and that includes the communications necessary to use them. This standard applies also to educational facilities. Brunel University opted for a Commend UK solution to meet the stringent, extensive requirements for their evacuation solution.

The Outcome

Commend UK met the challenge by providing a comprehensive Disabled Evacuation & Refuge Intercom system to Brunel University. The solution has been programmed to allow the many types of buildings spread over many acres to be evacuated quickly and efficiently in accordance with the university’s procedures.

The Solution

Within Brunel University’s buildings and car parks, a number of Intercom stations have been installed. These call to various local master stations located within receptions and main entrances throughout the campus.

If the master stations are not answered within a specifiedtime, the call is automatically transferred to the main control room. Forming part of a larger integrated communication solution, each location has a Commend Intercom Server GE 200 supporting the local Intercom units. Applications supported by the Intercom Server include Disabled Toilet Intercom, Barrier Intercom, Disabled Evacuation & Refuge Intercom, Help Points, Lift Alarms, etc. Also, induction loop amplifier interfaces Refuge areas, which are often situated on landings, are equipped with an emergency Intercom panel. Provision has also been made for future integration with a CCTV system, so that cameras associated with each call point will automatically provide a live image. The main college building, faculty buildings, halls of residence, sports facilities, library and car parks are all linked over the IP network. Car park barriers are raised or lowered remotely with a single keystroke at the answering master station. Disabled toilets – each equipped with an alarm pull cord, indicator and reset button – are linked to the Intercom system. Possible future extensions to the system include more Help Points and lone worker monitoring.
