SigNET’s revolutionary Integrity voice alarm system is the powerful new force behind the life safety systems at Aldershot Football Club. Installed by top audio specialist company, Intek Electronics, Integrity functions as a fully integrated voice alarm (VA), public address (PA) and background music (BGM) system. In the event of an emergency situation, the system provides a complete crowd warning system to effectively evacuate the 7,100 capacity ground.
Combining a voice alarm system with a high specification public address system, the six-zone fully contained life safety system features 48 powerful speakers. Pre-recorded messages are stored in a digital message store and volume levels can be set differently in each zone for emergency announcements, ordinary paging and background music.
Fully compliant with BS5839 Part 8, BS7827 and BS-EN60849, Integrity’s unique PC software enables a VA/PA system to be designed and demonstrated prior to purchase. Its capacity for all cause and effect scenarios to be tested and auditioned gives stadium/site management unrivalled confidence and control over site evacuation strategies.
Says Steven Wakefield of Intek Electronics: “Integrity fulfills all requirements of British standards relating to VA systems in sports stadiums and is a truly exceptional product. I would recommend it to any serious installer, particularly one looking to install a life safety system at a sports stadium.”
Continues Steven: “Key to our specification of Integrity was the fact that it is manufactured in the UK by a British company. Not only does SigNET design and manufacture the highest standard of life safety equipment but also provides exemplary technical training, advice and after-sales support. The service we received throughout the project – from purchase right through to commissioning – was second to none”.
