Voice Evacuation Systems

Voice Evacuation System

Our voice evacuation systems offer an effective and industry-regulated alternative to the standard bells and sounders that are played in emergencies. Our systems help to efficiently evacuate buildings in emergencies, but can also function as a general public address during normal circumstances, with the capacity to transmit background music, day-to-day voice announcements, timed voice announcements and even advertising broadcasts.

In emergency situations these systems are used to divide a building or premises into separate zones and, during an evacuation, zones in the building are ‘spoken to’ individually, several at a time, or all at once. People in the specific zone are informed – via the spoken word – what is happening and what to do. This phased evacuation helps to evacuate buildings in a controlled and safe manner. The system itself is continually monitored by a built-in checking mechanism which ensures that, when it counts, the system will work.

What We Do

Clayton Communications Zambia design and supply voice evacuation systems that are fully compliant with the most stringent safety standards in the world. EN-54 is the European legal standard of safety compliance for fire detection, alarms and evacuation, and these regulations are setting the worldwide standard. Zambian legislation is continually being reviewed and developed to bring the industry up to the levels of accountability currently enforced in EN-54, and is quickly moving towards enforcing wither full compliancy or part compliancy.

Evacuation Sign

Most insurance companies demand at least part compliancy with EN-54, especially on business premises where a large number of people are gathered and the risk of fatalities in the event of a fire or emergency is high. Facilities Managers are also realising these dangers, and are ensuring their buildings meet EN-54 safety standards to mitigate risks of fatalities and provide themselves with sufficient legal protection from lawsuits if a tragedy did occur.

Clayton Communications Zambia manage voice evacuation systems from the design stage to the programming and commissioning, through to providing the end-user’s Safety Officers with full system training. We also offer comprehensive service and maintenance level agreements on all the systems we install so end users always have the peace of mind that their systems are being properly maintained.
