Bradley Corp.’s new custom emergency fixture signaling systems expedite response efforts when accidents occur
Bradley Corp., designer and manufacturer of industrial safety and commercial washroom products, introduces its new Customized Emergency Signaling Systems, which help to quickly alert and mobilize emergency response teams to affected personnel using emergency safety showers and eye and eye/face wash fixtures, while discouraging vandalism that impairs the performance of emergency fixtures.
Designed for use with both new emergency safety fixtures and retrofits, the Emergency Signaling Systems allow users to customize their alarm packages with distinctive light and sound features that immediately and clearly alert safety personnel when an emergency occurs to improve response time. These customized systems may be located in indoor, outdoor or remote worksite locations.
Equipped with loud 108-decibel sound alarm tones to cut through ambient noise, the Signaling Systems offer a selection of several distinct tones. The custom packages also include highly visible colored flashing lights with choices of light colors for signal, area and beacon lights. An auto reset/silence switch will silence the alarm but keep the signal light flashing while an emergency is being addressed. The auto reset ensures the system will always be ready after testing the fixture.
A central control board connects all input and output devices and also allows for a simple hook up to a building’s remote monitoring system and Building Management Systems. This allows management to contact first responders, ensure immediate notification of proper safety and facility personnel, and provide for remote monitoring of safety equipment.
The custom alarm packages also include signaling devices that may be easily recessed into a wall, mounted directly to a wall surface or mounted directly onto the safety fixture. Powered by a convenient and easy to use universal power supply that accepts AC 90-264 volt input, the systems can be built for general area, Class 1 Division 1 or Class 1 Division 2 hazardous locations, and can be placed indoors or outdoors with waterproof and corrosion-resistant NEMA 4X rated products.
Bradley’s Emergency Signaling Systems are ideal for facilities with few employees, school science rooms, laboratories, warehouses, manufacturing facilities and more.
“When an employee is accidentally exposed to hazardous chemicals, every second counts for accessing emergency fixtures and receiving prompt emergency medical attention,” said Ryan Pfund, Senior Product Manager, Emergency Fixtures, Bradley Corp.
“The average Emergency Medical Services response time in the U.S. is 9.4 minutes, according to the National EMSC Data Analysis Resource Center (NEDARC). Bradley’s new signaling technology coupled with each emergency fixture helps to close the gap of time it takes to alert and mobilize the facility personnel and medical experts to administer proper medical care, improve the outcome of the emergency, and augment the overall safety preparedness of facilities.”
