During an emergency a building or ares within building may need to be evacuated.
How can emergency personnel determine if a room has been vacated without physically entering the room and checking? In the past, staff members performing an evacuation would use tape, chalk, door handle hangers etc. to mark rooms that had been cleared.
NONE of these methods prevented the re-entry to a room leaving the marker in place.
A proven method of emergency response is to be prepared. The Evacucheck Room Verification System is an essential tool for emergency preparedness and management.
When seconds count, there is no time to loose. The Evacucheck Room Verification System indicates the status of the room during emergency conditions through its unique, patented design.
In the event of an emergency, such as, a fire, a gas leak, a bomb threat or a flood the Evacucheck Room Verification System saves time by eliminating duplication of effort. The system is also ideal during routine Security Rounds and searches for Missing Persons.
Once a room has been verified as vacant, the system is put into action and no one can enter the room without the room verification system indicating so.
The Evacucheck Room Verification System is the ultimate tool to determine when a room has been vacated during building evacuation procedures.
The photo above shows the device in the open position. Once the status of the room has been verified, the hinged side of the unit is opened and is magnetically fastened to the door frame. The other side of the Evacucheck Room Verification System is permanently mounted to the door with strong adhesive double sided tape (supplied). Once the room searched thoroughly and confirmed to be unoccupied the Evacucheck Room Verification System unit was placed in the open position. The end result is that anyone responding to an emergency can quickly assess the status of a room, if a room is encountered with the system in a closed position.
When the door to the room is opened by more than one inch, the system automatically reverts to the closed position using a spring. The unit cannot be reset from inside the room. The photo below shows the unit in the closed position, indicating that the room has not been evacuated OR the door has been open by more than one inch and has possibly been reentered. The unit can be installed on any door and is coated with a highly reflective diamond grade face, manufactured by 3M. The unit is installed approximately 22 inches above the floor and is highly visible in low light and smoke filled environments, such as those that could be encountered in emergencies.
