Notification Appliances That You Know You Can Count On

In an emergency situation, detection is only the first step. To save lives, you need to provide effective notification to all occupants.

Sounders are considered as the most important of all alarm devices. It is a mandatory requirement that sounders are used as an integral part of a fire detection and alarm system.

Visual Alrm Devices (VADs) are used to supplement standard sounders to provide an effective means of alerting and evacuating occupants of the building as part of its fire safety strategy.

Regulations and codes of practices recommend that VADs should be installed in places where audible devices alone would be ineffective, or where they are simply undesirable.

Installation of VADs has been mandatory since January 2014 and, with the introduction
of EN54-23, the use of VADs has grown considerably.

Visual Indication devices (VIDs) are generally used as a supplementary indication to raise situational awareness. However, when an event occurs, they cannot be used as the only means to alert people to a potential fire hazard.

Our notification appliances and sounders alert occupants to danger and help them evacuate quickly and safely.
