Public Voice Evacuation


Public address and voice evacuation systems are mainly used within buildings where there is a need to provide clear, concise spoken messages either for general day to day communication or in the event of an emergency to safely evacuate occupants.

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, evidence suggests that people tend to ignore the sound of bells or sounders as they are heard so frequently in our day to life. Recent research revealed that the general public are less likely to panic when presented with a clear and easily understood message and upon adoption of this approach, evacuation times were reduced.


GB Integrated Systems, through a wealth of experience, are able to offer PAVA and voice evacuation systems as part of the overall fire detection and life safety design.
