Deafgard is a smoke alarm for the deaf and hard of hearing.
The Equality Act 2010 states that service providers such as hoteliers and suppliers of sleeping accommodation are legally obliged to make reasonable adjustment for the disabled, which includes deaf and hard of hearing people.
In the event of fire, deaf or hard of hearing people might not be able to hear the fire alarm, especially when they are asleep. This is a high risk, life threatening situation. Deafgard enables deaf and hard of hearing people to be made aware when the fire alarm sounds whilst they are sleeping.
Deafgard is a battery powered, wire free unit with a pad attachment that simply goes under the pillow of the sleeping person. Deafgard is listening for a continuous fire alarm of 75dBA or higher. When the fire alarm sounds the pillow pad vibrates, high intensity LED lights flash and an LCD screen displays ‘fire’.
