Voice Alarms are a fantastic tool to help keep buildings and their occupants safe.
They are an innovative alternative to traditional fire alarm systems, with research suggesting that humans are more likely to react to speech and ‘human instructions’.
What Is A Voice Alarm?
A Voice Alarm system (which can also be known as a ‘Public Address Voice Alarm’ or ‘Voice Evacuation System’) can be used to quickly broadcast information during a fire, bomb alert or other emergencies.
With speakers set up around the building, clear instructions can be broadcast to occupants, allowing the safe evacuation process of people.
The Benefits Of Voice Alarms
There are many benefits to having a voice alarm over a traditional fire alarm system.
Once professionally fitted, they can:
- Provide clear, spoken instructions to building occupants during an emergency event.
- Reduce the “It’s just a false alarm, let’s ignore it” concept (resulting in a high risk to life).
- Help facilitate full control during the evacuation of a building
The primary purpose of voice alarms is to obviously provide staff and members of the public with clear information during emergency situations.
During times of ‘non-emergency’, however, these systems are commonly used in various ways, most commonly for public address (PA) purposes.
Which Industries Would Benefit From Voice Alarms?
Most voice alarm systems that Amthal fits and monitors are scalable.
By that, we mean that they can be used for sectors and industries of various sizes, from one storey buildings to large structures such as exhibition halls.
For example, some of the organisations that could benefit from voice alarms include:
- Leisure complexes
- Shopping centres
Most voice alarm systems are made up of a central control system, microphones and speakers. They can be standalone or networked – linked together – to help maximise coverage.
Selecting, designing and commissioning a suitable voice alarm system can be complicated. Our expert engineers here at Amthal will be able to advise you on the best voice alarm system for your building.
