Product Details

Each Area of Refuge is required to have a central control point (Command Center) where the emergency phones call for assistance.

In low rise buildings (less than 60 ft. tall) the Command Center can simply be a telephone mounted in a cabinet located on the ground floor of the elevator lobby. The VE-ARSW cabinet is ideal for this application, allowing you to mount a single line phone or PABX Key phone.

The VE-ARSW is a 13″ x 13.5″ x 4″ surface mount metal cabinet with a hinged door, roller catch, chrome handle, phone mounting studs and optional lock. The lock is equipped with a breakaway cam allowing emergency personnel to force the door open if the key cannot be found.
