Clear Message for Cinema Goers
Commentingon the Camden ODEON project, Andy Cowen, Director of Premier Fire Systems Ltd,said: Fire-Cryer is a quality product, which allows us to provideour clients with a ‘value engineering’ solution to enable an existing firealarm system to be easily converted for voice sounder evacuation.
Oneof the main attractions of the Fire-Cryer for use in applicationssuch as Cinema refurbishments is the easy upgrade from the original soundercircuits, as often the existing wiring can be re-used. The units can be fullysynchronised and have a low current consumption allowing simple replacement ofexisting sounders and bells. The Fire-Cryer’s multi-message capability also ensures that system test and all clear messages can be easilytransmitted avoiding confusion with the fire/evacuation alarm.Each unitcan be programmed with up to 7 messages from a library of thousands, many ofwhich are multi-lingual, ensuring that any site requirement can be fulfilled.
Atotal of 41 Fire-Cryer Plus voice sounders were used in the upgradeat Camden ODEON, including standard wall-mounted white units and Midi and Maxihigh-output variants. The wide product range available within the Fire-Cryer Plus family is ideally suited to the different environments found in a typicalcinema. Maxi Fire-Cryers, with their high-power 116dBA output, areoften positioned behind the screens providing wide coverage for the seatingareas. The standard units, available in red and white and with optionalstrobes, make up the majority of the installations and provide an attractiveand unobtrusive voice sounder solution for use in public areas.
The combination of 7 messages and a wide-range of compatible voice sounders ensurethat the Fire-Cryer Plus remains the most advanced range of voicesounders currently available and will continue to be the first choice fordesigners, installers and end-users.
