SOS-Info-Säule / Emergency info telephone


Discipline: Interior Architecture

Discipline: Interior Architecture

The essence of this emergency telephone and information point’s impressively clear form and design lies in its user-friendly division into two operating levels:
1. the front, with an emergency call facility and information button, a speaking and listening facility and a light module which flashes red in case of emergency
2. the sides, for taking emergency action, with emergency stop levers for approaching trains on each side and with access to a fire extinguisher drawer
The high-quality, vandalism-proof and environmentally friendly stainless steel realization integrates the emergency and information point into Hochbahn’s CI. Its high recognition factor and simple structure make it easier for users to get help quickly or take action themselves.
