Tek-SAFE Area of Rescue Assistance System

Tek-SAFE Area of Rescue Assistance System is an emergency intercom system that allows people who are unable to reach safety by themselves to summon assistance from rescue personnel.

Tek-SAFE meets the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requirements for area of rescue assistance systems (previously called area of refuge systems). Check local codes for additional requirements.

Tek-SAFE provides audio communication between area of rescue remote call stations (in protected stairwells) and the building lobby. Calls are indicated at the lobby master station by both visual and audible signals. The master station has sensitive 2-way communication to the remote call stations, and can also initiate call tones to them. The standard NC150R master station accommodates up to 8 remote call stations; other sizes may be special ordered.
