Annex No. 2:

Safety and technical rules (technical manual) / rules of safe stay in Aranka and the surrounding landscape

All guests staying in Aranka are required to follow all precautions and procedures below to avoid accident, injury or other damage to health or property. The Client assumes the responsibility for the compliance with these measures and procedures by the Client as well as the persons who are accommodated in Aranka with the Client.

1. Fireplace stove - only wood which is prepared at Aranka can be used for heating in the fireplace stove. The fireplace heats up the living space, the sauna and the bathroom. If you want to make fire in the stove, first use crumpled pieces of newspaper and wood chips, which you spread out evenly on the crumpled newspaper. Pull the chimney flap towards you (upper stainless steel rod on the right side of the stove), pull the fresh air intake towards you (lower stainless steel rod on the right side of the stove), light the newspaper with a match or lighter to catch the fine chips and later larger pieces wood on fire. After lighting the newspaper, close the glass fireplace door and wait for the stove to light up. Then close the chimney flap and the air intake by sliding the two stainless steel rods away from you. Place the wood evenly so that the stove is not overfilled and the door can always be closed safely.

2. Gas stove - can only be controlled through the INet box. The guest is allowed to change the temperature in the living space, not to change the overall settings of the INet box. It is forbidden to block or cover the air vents in the living room and bathroom.

Do not throw sanitary napkins, wet wipes, diapers or other items into the chemical toilet. Only use the supplied toilet paper. The water for rinsing the toilet flows as long as you hold the switch on the top of the toilet, the brush for keeping the toilet clean is placed on the wall next to the toilet bowl. After finishing and cleaning the toilet, close the valve and shut the toilet lid. If the chemical cartridge is full, the red warning light on the top of the toilet will illuminate. Do not use the toilet at that time. The cartridge needs to be replaced. At this point, you need to call the caretaker to take care of the replacement.

4. Light in Aranka - it is biodynamic, meaning that it works with a chromaticity close to humans. During the day, white light shines with a proportion of blue light, after sunset some lights are off and only warm orange light shines without the blue component of the visible spectrum, so that your body can begin the processes of regeneration and rest.

5. Gas stove - the two-burner gas stove is ignited by pressing the control knob and placing a burning match or lighter on the appropriate hob. Never leave the hob burning when you leave the room. Always check that the hob is switched off and that no gas is leaking into the room.

It can be controlled by inserting the shower hose with the head into the bayonet quick coupling into the part that is a fixed part of the Aranka construction. The water temperature can be controlled on the part that is firmly connected to the Aranka construction by means of a rotary regulator. The guest is considerate with water consumption being aware of its limited amount.

7. Windows and doors - the guest is obliged to close and lock all windows and doors when leaving Aranka, as well as in case of strong wind or rain.

10. Fire extinguisher - it is located on the bookshelf under the lower bed. The device is powder-based. In the event of a fire, it must first be unlocked after removing it from the holder by pulling out the lock, then point it with the nozzle towards the fire and press the cap.

11. Caretaker - the caretaker can be contacted in situations where the guest needs advice or assistance with the operation or control of Aranka.

12. The caretaker will inform the guest on arrival about the nearest hospital, emergency room and pharmacy.

13. Outdoor fireplace - use only the space designated for outdoor fire, this space is surrounded by large stones to prevent uncontrollable spread of fire into a wider area.

14. Fridge - located under the work area of the kitchen. The cooling temperature can be controlled on the integrated controller inside the cooling compartment. Care must be taken to ensure that the refrigerator does not remain open for a long time and that the energy requirements for cooling it do not increase.

15. Roof windows, roof - it is forbidden to go on top of and move on the roof. In case of approaching rain, both roof windows must be closed.

16. Bang & Olafson Wireless Speaker - This speaker can be connected via Bluetooth settings to your mobile device. The speaker is named Beolit 17. Charging is via 220V. Speaker depletion can be identified by continuously lowering the volume of music being played without guest intervention. The speaker is for indoor use only. Always leave it inside the mobile unit.

17. 220 V and 12 V socket - a double 12 V socket is located under the dining table top and is used to charge 12V devices. It is not permitted to insert devices other than those set up for this purpose. 220V sockets are located: 1x in the lighting of the upper bed, 1x in the lighting of the lower bed, 1x under the dining table top, 1x in the kitchen worktop area. 220V is triggered by a switch located to the left of the entrance door. Pressing the switch activates the outlets and the fan for 1 hour. The indication is a red LED in a 220 V socket in the kitchen worktop area.

18. CO2 - Aranka or also minimal mobile unit; the name itself implies that the size is rather intimate. The occupant feels comfortable and cozy inside. On the other hand, we need to keep in mind that we consume oxygen and exhale CO2 when breathing. Fireplace stove behaves similarly. During your stay in Aranka, it is therefore necessary to continuously ventilate in order to exchange air. If we heat in a fireplace, we ventilate all the more often until the air in Aranka is fresh. Thorough ventilation is necessary during your stay at Aranka and especially before bedtime.  

19. Rules of safe stay in Aranka and the surrounding landscape

Aranka and the nature that surrounds it inspire us with their harmony and beauty. The landscape is a place where we feel safe, but it can turn into a trap and possible danger. This requires ourselves to treat Aranka and the surrounding countryside with respect, caution and, above all, foresight. The nature around Aranka is wild and beautiful and that is also the reason why it makes such an impression on us and we are so happy to return there. However, it is very important to constantly follow important safety principles and recommendations.
The rocks and slopes that model the surroundings in the immediate vicinity of Aranka can become a dangerous place if we do not keep a safe distance from the edge of the rocks or if we enter the slope from where we can fall and be very seriously injured.
If we have children with us, we need to pay very close attention to their safety and make sure that we do not allow them access to dangerous places. Children must be supervised by their parents or another adult who has taken full responsibility for them during any movement around Aranka. The Client is responsible for the safety of all guests, including children.
For your own safety and that of your loved ones, never climb the surrounding rocks, enter their edges, slopes or near them. Keep a distance of at least a few meters from the edge of the rocks.
If it has just rained or the soil is moist from dew or snow, or frozen, move with great care everywhere, so as not to slip and cause unpleasant injuries.
Never climb Aranka or the surrounding trees, leave the high branches and treetops to the birds and the wind, which suits them better.
If you decide to go swimming, never jump into the water, sharp and unexpected objects may be hidden under the surface. Non-swimmers must always wear safety equipment such as life jackets and rings.
Never step on the surface of the pond if there is ice on it. Although it may seem strong enough, its strength may not be the same everywhere and you may fall through.
In the event of an accident, seek medical help immediately, small wounds can be treated with a first aid kit, which is located in the Aranka library. In the Czech Republic, the following telephone numbers are reserved for emergency calls (calls are free):

150 Fire and Rescue Service of the Czech Republic
155 Ambulance service
158 Police of the Czech Republic
156 Municipal (city) police
