Automatic fire extinguishing systems

Whether it is an airport, a hotel, a shopping center, hospital or a nursing home, physical structure of buildings used for housing and transit of large number of people are becoming increasingly complex. As danger and risk to visitors or residents of such buildings is ever increasing, awareness of the need for more effective protection of human life is also growing. While in the past property was in the focus of protection for the sake of security, nowadays all safety regulations, in particular those pertaining to construction, include references to alarming and informing people on the degree of potential danger in the structures.

The new DIN VDE 0833-4 standard has made important contributions to the improvement of the regulations. This new standard places emphasis on the connection of voice alarm system with fire alarm system more clearly than ever before, plus it contains clear guidelines for alarm and signal devices that are operated within fire detection and alarm systems. The designers, consultants and technicians who install voice alarm systems now have access to reliable guidelines which also describe installation criteria and conditions of technical acceptance of these systems in detail.

As equipment manufacturer by Esser by Honeywell has all the necessary certificates needed to verify the quality of the product, we have opted to work with the equipment of this reputable manufacturer.

Fire detection and alarm and evacuation systems technology will continue to grow together in the future. Ability to network fire detection and alarm systems and voice alarm systems offers decisive advantages compared to previous solutions.

Once networked with fire detection and alarm systems, voice alarm systems will provide direct instructions for proper conduct in case of fire emergency. This is performed using stored voice messages and it ensures that the people in the building receive timely information so they can evacuate quickly and in accordance with the regulations. In their day-to-day operations, these voice alarm systems facilities can also be used to play background music or provide information and advertising.

In structures that require high security standards, such as hospitals and nursing homes, these systems can also be used for different purposes. In addition to voice message function in case of emergency and evacuation, these systems can be used to provide different messages and information or to play music. In combination with systems of hospital signaling, it is also possible to use these voice alarm systems to display messages directly on the hospital information displays and signaling terminals.

Today's systems for voice alarm are mostly digitized and they include, among other elements, analog and digital power amplifiers, digital control modules (DOM), digital callers with a microphone and the required number of programmable buttons, interfaces, different communication units, speakers of different types and purpose, freestanding cabinets, and uninterruptible power supplies compliant with EN54-4 standard.
