IR088A Oversized Apartment Intercom Stations
The Alpha Communications® IR088A apartment stations are designed specifically for renovation use and are large enough to cover the area occupied by the existing intercom units, making repainting unnecessary. The reduced wiring requirement permits using the existing wiring (if in good condition), while the advanced electronic design permits use in large or small buildings. A wide variety of optional accessories is available to provide additional functions such as dual entrance operation, post office door release, silent door operation, etc. Stations are also available in custom designs.
