Why use the DaDo Panic Strip? Wherever there is face-to-face contact between the public and “authority”, there is the possibility of conflict, personal confrontation and ultimately violence. These potentially violent situations could range from a Police Officer interviewing a suspect at a police station to, less obviously, a learner driver receiving driving test results. The DaDo Panic Strip can be used to summon help when personnel feel under threat and therefore avoiding the possibility of violence altogether.
DaDo is ideal for many other applications. A good example is its use in disabled toilets. To comply with the Disability Discrimination Act disabled toilets have to be equipped with a means of calling for assistance and the usual method has been a pull-cord switch. In practice cords can often be broken or tied up in an inaccessible position, which can be dangerous if the disabled person has fallen to the ground. DaDo can be mounted around the walls of the toilet at a height that is convenient for operation when sitting in a wheelchair or lying on the ground.
Why is the Panic Strip “better than the button”? The answer is simple – accessibility! No matter what sophisticated alarm system is behind it, a panic button is useless if it is even one inch out of reach. DaDo Panic Strip can be fixed around the walls of a room, under a desk or counter, on the floor, etc. and can be operated anywhere along its length.
