Benington Defibrillators
Alarmed Outdoor AED Cabinet


This defibrillator cabinet is specially designed for outdoor use. It provides protection from dust, rain, cold, rust and moisture. The cabinet is temperature regulated and contains a heating and fan system to provide protection of the AED unit.

The cabinet is made of a clear anti-UV treated polycarbonate cover and ABS frame providing durable, shock resistant protection for the AED. It has an audible alarm and flashing red LED light when the cabinet is open.

The cabinet has a built in heating and fan system. The heating allows the AED to be stored in extreme cold conditions while the fan system allows heat to be extracted from the AED compartment when the weather is warm.

The sensor automatically activates a white light to help identification of the cabinet in low ambient light.

  • Essentially the white flashing helps people to locate the defibrillator

  • It flashes red if the case is opened and a siren also sounds to alert people so the first responder gets additional people to help

Duck food machine at the village pond

Unfortunately, it has been necessary to remove the duck food dispenser at the village pond.

There have been repeated problems with condensation forming inside the dispenser, causing the food to become damp and block up the machine. This resulted in people putting money in the machine, but no food being dispensed.

The Parish Council will look to see if there are any alternative solutions.
