GENT BY HONEYWELL Strengthens Its Voice Alarm System Offering

Leading fire detection and alarm specialist, Gent by Honeywell, has boosted its voice alarm offering by receiving the latest certification for its range of Voice Alarm (VA) systems as well as introducing a dedicated VA support team.

The provision of products certified to the latest harmonised standards coupled with the dedicated sales support services team will ensure that Gent and its experienced team of System Integrators will be able to fully meet the needs of VA projects of all types and sizes.

The Vigilon Compact Voice Alarm system is one of the first to be certified with BRE, which provides third party certification of fire, security and environmental products and services in line with the newly harmonised part 16 of fire safety standard European norm EN54. This is recognised in the industry as the standard to which the design and construction of VA equipment should conform. The Gent system is also fully compliant with standard BS5839-8 2008, which is generally required in project specifications.

In addition, Gent has further expanded its VA/PA range to include certified rack based systems to ensure the company has the most appropriate solution to suit every individual application.

The Vigilon Compact Voice Alarm system offers the ultimate choice for customers by using the very latest voice alarm and public address technology, combined with the renowned Analogue Addressable fire detection and alarm functionality of Gent’s existing Vigilon Compact system. This ensures reliable and constant life safety protection for both people and property.

The primary benefit of Gent’s Voice Alarm systems is how they aid the safe evacuation of a building in an emergency. High quality, intelligible voice messages instead of tones greatly reduce the response time and provides the opportunity to advise occupants of the safest emergency route.

The new Gent sales support services team, based in the company’s Leicester headquarters has been set up to provide expert support in acoustic design as well as additional support for customers on any aspect of fire detection and alarm products. The team carries a vast amount of experience in the design and application engineering of FD&A (Fire Detection and Alarm) and VA systems. It can provide advice on everything from site survey and training, to factory acceptance testing and general application guidance. In addition to this Gent offers an expert rack build service with a dedicated facility for factory acceptance tests (FAT).

Simon Foulkes, Product Manager at Gent by Honeywell, said: “Gent is one of only a small number of companies to receive this new certification and this, together with our expanded Voice Alarm range and our highly experienced customer service team, makes us the natural choice for fire detection and voice alarms.”
