Public Address Voice Alarm Systems

    In an emergency situation such as a fire, it is essential that people are evacuated safely and in the shortest possible time. Electronic sounders and bells are commonly used as fire alarm warnings, however research has shown that people are less likely to react to these than those presented with a clear and easily understood message. The integration of PAVA systems and fire detection systems can be used to give intelligible and unambiguous instructions via pre-recorded messages for evacuation of the premises.

    Scotshield Fire & Security can provide the design, installation, commissioning and maintenance of PAVA systems meeting the requirements of BS5839-8. The systems offered can range from small integrated fire detection and PAVA systems to larger centralised or distributed amplifier systems for commercial and retail environments.
