Deaf and Hard of Hearing


The Fire Denyer® System with special features has been installed in over 250 Housing New Zealand Corporation, local body and private housing units in towns and cities throughout New Zealand; providing that extra level of protection for persons with special requirements.

A typical installation for a person who is hard of hearing and may have difficulty in hearing the smoke detector alarms includes:

  • The Fire Denyer® Controller
  • A Contactor at the switch board
  • Hard wired smoke detectors as required
  • Flashing Alerters as required (flashing Red when activated by the smoke detectors)
  • Waking Vibrator installed in the deaf person’s bedroom
  • A door ‘bell’ that activates the Flashing Alerters (flashing Blue or Green) but does not sound

Fire Preventors Ltd is happy to discuss special requirements for customers and produce a system that meets your needs.
