Most states in the U.S. require by law that pools accessible by the public have a pool phone that can dial emergency services. The 1600A Series ADA Compliant Emergency Phone from Viking fills this requirement.
The thermometer is at its highest during these summer months and everyone is looking for a way to cool off. Many people escape the heat by visiting their local swimming pool. Public and private pools are a great place for people to relax and have fun. Of course the danger of swimming pools is always present. Lifeguards and parents need to be on constant lookout for any signs of trouble. If an emergency situation does happen, it is necessary to have a quick method for calling emergency services. Telcom & Data is proud to provide a product to help increase swimming pool safety. The 1600A Series ADA Compliant Emergency Phones from Viking are ideal for swimming pool areas.
In most states, the law requires that pools available to the public have emergency phones. Providing guests with a safe and enjoyable experience should be the top priority of any pool operator. The 1600A Series ADA Compliant Emergency Phones are designed to provide quick and reliable hands free communication perfect for an indoor or outdoor pool area. The 1600A Series phones can be programmed to automatically deliver a digital announcement to identify the location of the emergency call and then initiate the call connected LED light. All units are phone line powered, requiring no batteries or external power. Up to five emergency numbers can be programmed into the phone.
For outdoor pool areas Enhanced Weather Protection (EWP) is available for several 1600A Series phones. EWP products feature rubber gaskets and boots, hand soldered silicon sealed connections and gel filled tip and ring connectors to ensure that the emergency phone can withstand the harshest of weather conditions.
