The Glow-phone is the only fully luminescent telephone available in the United Kingdom.
Panic is contagious, and in many proven instances has led to injuries which caused even greater danger for the trapped people.
Emergency situations are certainly not planned, they simply happen!
The GPT Glow-phone functions as a light emitting unit in sudden blackout situations, so:-
The GPT IXT (*) was selected as the ideal Glow-phone model because of its reliability, robustness and its universal acceptance.
Areas of Application
Lifts, cold stores and vaults.
Operations control centres.
The glow will be brightest during the first thirty minutes, and this is considered to be the most critical period in emergencies in terms of panic inducement. The green glow can last for several hours.
As the Glow-phone is dependent upon light for charging, it cannot be used in non-illuminated areas.
The telephone is saturated by a few seconds exposure to almost all commonly available light sources, and the glowing property will last a lifetime.
Scientists at the Building Research Establishment have been testing luminous materials that may replace emergency lighting systems in public buildings.
Safety Executives are closely examining the advantages of using the luminous telephone terminal with a view to further enhancing existing safety systems.
Note:- The GPT IXT is BS6317 approved and meets the BS6301 Telecommunications Requirements.
