  • Patent number: 3996580
    Abstract: A fire alarm and protection enclosure in the form of a booth or box having means therein for signalling an alarm to a fire station and/or police station. The enclosure includes a door and a treadle upon which a person must stand and close the door which is then automatically locked upon actuating the alarm, which door remains locked to detain the person setting off the alarm for a predetermined period. Electrical interlock circuitry interconnected with the door, the treadle and the door lock renders the apparatus fool-proof or tamperproof so that false alarms are prevented.

  • Patent number: 3964057
    Abstract: A fire alarm and protection booth having means therein for signalling an alarm to a fire station and/or police station as well as providing refuge in the case of an emergency. The booth comprises an enclosure having a door and a foot treadle which are coupled to electrical switches adapted to provide input signals to a solid state control circuit which upon the actuation of an alarm switch, sets off an alarm as well as detains the person in the enclosure for a predetermined period. An emergency switch is also included which when actuated locks the door during the time the emergency switch is continuously pressed. In the event that the alarm switch is subsequently actuated, the emergency switch is overridden. The solid state control circuit is further operative to defeat any attempt to compromise the alarm system and thereby render the apparatus fool-proof and tamper-proof.
