Indispensable for barrier-free access: the status display. This also provides the hearing-impaired with clear feedback from the intercom.
Mode of operation
The status display conforms to the “Two-senses principle”. It signals both visually and acoustically which function is currently active. In this way, the deaf and hearing impaired also receive clear feedback from the intercom system.
The fourth symbol signals that: A connection cannot currently be established.
The standards define which technical requirements must be fulfilled for buildings and structures to be considered barrier-free. They require door release and intercom systems to be incorporated into the barrier-free design. The status display currently meets the following standards:
DIN 18040 “Barrier-free construction” (DE)
ÖNORM B 1600:2012 “Barrier-free construction” (AT), mounting of the status display at a height of 85 to 100 cm
SIA standard 500 “Barrier-free buildings” (CH), mounting of the status display at a maximum height of 160 cm
Laws concerning the disabled in France, mounting of the status display at a height of 90 to 130 cm
The option for individual positioning of the functional modules also meets the different requirements in terms of the mounting height.
Reference: The Includio hotel project
The Hotel Includio will be Regensburg's first inclusion hotel. Siedle supports the Johanniter project with barrier-free door communication. After completion, many technical aids will support accessibility. At the entrances, intercom systems with status displays from Siedle are an important part of barrier-free access.
The status display acknowledges the door call through a visual signal. In this way, hearing impaired people can be sure that it is actually ringing. As soon as the person accepts the call, a further symbol signals: Now the person may speak. A third symbol indicates that the door release is being activated, a fourth indicates if no connection can be established.
Includio will bring people with and without disabilities together as guests and employees. All rooms are designed to be barrier-free and suitable for people with visual and hearing impairments; many jobs will be available to people with disabilities. The visualizations show what the hotel will look like after completion in 2021.
