Deaf and hard of hearing people are in danger of not hearing the fire alarm.
Deafgard is the safe, legal and cost effective solution
Part III of the DDA (Disability Discrimination Act) became mandatory on October 1 2004, and states that service providers such as hoteliers and suppliers of sleeping accommodation are legally obliged to make provision for the disabled - including deaf and hard of hearing people.
In October 2010, The Equality Act replaced most of the DDA and the Disability Equality Duty continues to apply.
In the event of fire, a deaf or hard of hearing person will not be able to hear the fire alarm - especially when they are asleep in hotels, sheltered housing, care homes etc. This is a high risk and life threatening situation and the Deafgard 1329-A01 is considered to be an excellent solution.
This safe, legal solution, offers the simplest and most cost-effective way of legally communicating the sounding of a fire alarm to deaf and hard of hearing people in hotel rooms and other residential premises.
Deafgard is a fully portable, wire free, acoustically-triggered bedside unit that incorporates a high-intensity strobe and a connected vibrator pad. The vibrator pad is placed under the pillow and would vibrate to wake the sleeping person in the event of the fire alarm sounding. A flashing strobe light and LCD provide visual indication that the fire alarm is sounding, allowing the individual to leave their room to a place of safety.
