Code Blue Corporation is pleased to announce a number of upgrades and additions to its catalog of industry pioneering emergency communication solutions to provide even more options to customers looking to improve safety and security at their location. CB 2-e Help Point solution upgrade As first exhibited at the Global Security Expo 2019 (GSX) in September in Chicago, USA, the CB 2-e has been redesigned to make it easier to install and more economical. One of Code Blue’s most popular wall-mounted Help Points, the CB 2-e will feature a lightweight, two-piece design that makes installation and maintenance easy for a single person. Additionally, CB 2-e delivers a 4-inch depth that is slim enough to be ADA compliant on any wall, making it an ideal match for high-traffic areas like parking garages and building entrances. Code Blue also is announcing the release of the CB RT, a durable, freestanding pedestal CB 4-s hooded call box The CB 4-s, Code Blue’s hooded call box, and the former CB 6-s, which will now be known as the Surface Mount Enclosure, have been updated as well to be lighter and more economical without sacrificing any of the durability that is synonymous with all Code Blue products. Code Blue also is announcing the release of the CB RT, a durable, freestanding pedestal that can reliably house either the IP5000 VoIP or IA4100 analog hands-free speakerphones. For more than 30 years, the trademarked cylindrical design of Code Blue’s signature pedestal Help Points has served as an easily identifiable means to reliably request assistance at the touch of a button. S-1000 LED Beacon/Strobe light The addition of the CB RT and its rectangular design offers another simple and cost-effective option to effectively install communication devices. Available in either wet- or power-coated paint, the CB RT is 9 feet tall and features Code Blue’s powerful S-1000 LED Beacon/Strobe light that is easily visible in open areas and large campus settings. “These improvements are a direct response to feedback from customers, who need economical choices that are easy to install, but also are durable, visible and reliable,” Director of Distribution, Code Blue Corp., Katie Petre said. “Code Blue prides itself on being the industry leader in quality and customer service, and these upgrades make reliable safety even more obtainable and attractive for both new and existing customers.” Code Blue’s new features and products will be available to order starting January 1, 2020.
