Voice Alarms Systems
A voice alarm system is installed with the safety of staff and the general public in mind, by alerting them to an emergency in a clear and unambiguous manner with the minimum of delay. At all other times a voice alarm system can be used to make public address announcements, broadcast advertisements or background music. All broadcasts, be they live announcements or continual music, can be sent to all areas of a site or to specific areas (referred to as zones).
A voice alarm system provides clear easily understood instruction via pre-recorded messages. This method ensures that even untrained personnel and the general public are evacuated speedily and efficiently.
A voice alarm system has to work when needed in the event of an emergency and is therefore, fully monitored at all times. It is also backed up by batteries which are fully charged and checked constantly ensuring that even during a mains power failure the system will continue to operate.
A combination of clear pre-recorded messages and live announcements (to selected areas) enable a controlled and gradual evacuation. Phased evacuation methods enable selected areas to be evacuated in turn; typically those in most danger are evacuated first, whilst surrounding areas are put on ‘alert’. The voice alarm system works automatically, with all controls easily overridden by authorised personnel when required
No two voice alarm system are typically the same and are designed and built specifically for each project. Systems may be used on a daily basis for public address, timed spot announcements for advertising or general information and background music, the voice alarm system is not just for use during emergencies.
