Smoke alarm for hotels - Deafgard vibrating fire alarm alert & Dorgard

Deafgard unit in use
Deafgard is a stand alone, wire free fire alarm listening device for deaf and hard of hearing people.  Deafgard consists of a battery-powered, acoustically triggered bedside unit that incorporates a high intensity strobe and a connected vibrator pad that is placed under the pillow.  When Deafgard hears the fire alarm, the under pillow pad vibrates waking the sleeper and the activated flashing strobe provides the complementary visual indicator. Deafgard will help residential areas comply with important elements of the Disability Discrimination Act.

How does the Deafgard work?
The Deafgard unit monitors the sound around it every 4 seconds, if an alarm sound greater than 65dB(A) is detected by the unit for 4 times in a row (approx 16 seconds) an alert will be triggered.

Information about the sound of a fire alarm 
The British Standard for fire alarm installation, BS5839-1:2002, (Clause 16.2).
"The sound pressure level of alarm signals should be generally, throughout all accessible areas of the building not less than 65dB(A) ..... where the sound pressure level of background noise is greater than 60dB(A), the sound pressure level of the fire alarm signal should be 5dB above the sound pressure level of background noise."

It also states: The sound pressure level of alarm signals "should be not less than 75dB(A) at the bed head within rooms in which the fire alarm system is intended to rouse people from sleep".

 

Dorgard enables you to legally and safely keep fire doors open, by allowing the door to close when the fire alarm sounds preventing the spread of fire and smoke. Installed onto the bottom of the fire door in under 5 minutes, Dorgard is listening for a continuous fire alarm of 65dBA or higher.

Freedor - wireless fire door closer

Freedor is a unique wireless solution that allows users to hold fire doors open at any angle and automatically closes
the door when the fire alarm sounds. Installed at the top of the fire door, Freedor is a simple, neat and unobtrusive fire door closer. Easy to install in new buildings and retrofit. Freedor is a wireless device that allows the door to swing freely, be left in any position, but will close the door when the fire alarm sounds.

Freedor needs to hear a fire alarm that exceeds 65dBA, verifying the alarm over a 14 second period. Freedor will then release the door preventing the spread of fire and smoke around the building.
