Fire Telephone Systems

What is a Fire Telephone System?

A Fire Telephone System is a form of EVCS (Emergency Voice Communication System) dedicated to the safe communication between Fire Officers and the building control point

When should a Fire Telephone System be fitted?

A Fire Telephone system is usually provided adjacent to Fire Fighting lifts for use by fire officers and fire marshals; typically this in buildings over four storeys (the extent of the ladders on a fire engine) as above this height the evacuation needs managing. The use of fixed hard-wired telephone points ensures the system is available, and unaffected by the building structure.

What do you need to provide?

The protected fire fighting lift lobby should contain a two way communication system to BS5839-pt9:2011, clear signage should be provided, and sounders in the lobby should be replaced by VADS (to EN54-23). This may also be combined with the Disabled Refuge system, if they are in the same area.

The Vox Ignis ViLX OSA or ViLX OSC  outstations are ideal for this role, and can be used with the ViLX-228 or ViLX-TMS master station solutions.
