Designed to give a clear alert in the event of an activation. Lockdown units are visually and audibly distinct from fire alert units to minimise disruption and confusion.
ALERTEX Lockdown units comply with Ofsted lockdown procedure guidelines that fall in line with advice from the National Counter Terrorism Office, which state that ‘the use of fire alarms should be avoided to reduce incorrect responses to an incident’.
Lockdown units can enunciate a bespoke lockdown message that can be fully customised at the time of ordering. Alternatively, units can be ordered with a sounder that has 32 different alert sounds to choose from. Either variant is paired with a visual flashing beacon light.
The ALERTEX call-point with either a sounder or annunciator / beacon is a staple in any setup. When the call-point button on the unit is pressed, all units on the same site within 1km will be activated. The master variant is fitted with a reset key which will deactivate the ALERTEX system post-activation. External units have an IP66 weather rating and are both water and dust resistant.
ALERTEX sounder/beacon can play one of 32 different alert sounds. Annunciator / beacon units can play either a standard or custom lockdown message. Both the sounder and annunciator variant are paired with a flashing beacon. The unit features no call point and is activated when a call-point or keyfob on the same site is triggered. The volume of the sounder is adjustable up to 117 dB.ui-
