Vulnerable workers: A Barbour guide

Product focus: EVAC-ALERT by C-TEC

C-TEC-EvacAlert-20The new EVAC-ALERT has been unveiled by C-TEC to offer a compliant solution to BS 8629 for high rise buildings.

Released last year, BS 8629:2019 gives guidance on Evacuation Alert Systems installed in blocks of flats to assist the Fire and Rescue Service (FRS) in evacuating part or all of a building in an emergency.

Housed in a vandal-resistant locked cabinet accessible only by the FRS in an emergency, the control panel for the EVAC-ALERT features bright LED indicators and “easy-to-operate” toggle switches for each evacuation zone. Each panel can connect to an array of evacuation alert devices including sounders, visual alert devices and even vibrating devices and pagers to alert the deaf, hard of hearing or mobility impaired.

The device comprises EN54-2/4 third-party certified components and can be used to create building-specific wired, wireless or hybrid evacuation alert systems in consultation with the relevant FRS.

Andy Scott, Project Director at C-TEC, commented: “We’ve utilised our time-tested technology and expertise to create EVAC-ALERT, a system specifically designed to meet the exact requirements of BS 8629 and one which is certain to be of interest to landlords, property managers and local authorities keen to ensure their buildings fully comply with this new standard.”
