Installed as a stand alone system or in addition to an Intruder Alarm system, Panic Alarms also known as Hold Up Alarms are most commonly installed in areas that have a higher level of personal risk to either members of staff or the general public.
During our initial risk assessment of your premises, our consultants will help to identify any circumstances where staff members or the general public may be at an increased level of risk.
Solitary Workers, although employed in buildings with other members of staff, often find themselves working in areas alone.
This can include receptionists or staff using interview or examination rooms who may find themselves in a vulnerable situation and needing to raise an alarm.
Although it is most commonly assumed a panic alarm system is used to deter a potential attacker, the systems can also be used by staff members to summon assistance for members of the general public in distress or who may require medical assistance.
Dependent upon the user requirements, your Panic Alarm System can be programmed to raise an audible, visual or silent alert upon a panic alarm activation.
The warning can be localised to the affected area, signalled to a specified area, such as a security office, or transmitted to the Alarm Receiving Centre for a Police response.
All systems can be set up to utilise wired, wireless or an integration of both devices on the system.
Typically wired devices are used in a fixed location such as a reception desk, whereas wireless devices are more suitable for staff not fixed to a single work station.
