WAYFINDER is a directional beacon, which offers visual guidance to the fire exits in the event of an alarm situation. Once a fire alarm has been triggered WAYFINDER units activate themselves by picking up the distinct decibel sound emitted by the fire alarm or via Radio technology*.
WAYFINDER units begin to activate by way of a red flashing arrow giving guidance along possibly smoke filled corridors and up or down stairwells thus offering people potentially vital extra minutes during evacuation.
WAYFINDER units are typically placed along corridors at skirting board or waist high level to maximise its visual flashing directional arrow in the event of smoke obscuring present fire exit signs and where people are forced to crawl below the rising smoke. Bedrooms in hotels and office areas benefit by having a WAYFINDER unit above the doors to aid people out.
The original WAYFINDER Concept is now being continuously developed. New technology and additional usage variations from the original version have been added to the range as many companies and organisations can see its enormous benefits in their particular situation.
