Deafgard Fire Alarm Listening Device background

Fire presents a high risk situation to deaf and hard of hearing people, especially when they stay in hotels, guest houses, care homes and other residential buildings. Under the mandatory terms of the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA), effective since 1st October 2004, all owners of commercial and public buildings are required to make adequate provisions for the needs of the deaf and hard of hearing people.

Deafgard delivers effective solution! Deafgard is the latest advance in the development of wireless technology. Deafgard offers safe and portable answer to communicating the sounding of an alarm to all guests and residents that are deaf or hard of hearing.

The vibrator pad is placed under the pillow, on which the deaf or hard of hearing person rests. Deafgard commences it duties, listening for a fire alarm. As soon as the fire alarm sounds, the vibrator pad underneath the pillow vibrates and wakes the sleeping person by its strong motion, whilst the activated strobe flashes and provides an additional visual indicator of emergency.  The deaf individual becomes aware of the potential danger and is able to leave the room seeking safety.
