Mass Notification Warning Products
MASS Notification is a newer term being used in the Life Safety Community. The term itself is defined in several different ways depending upon the application. NFPA 72 version 2010 states in section 22.214.171.124.2, In-Building Mass Notification Systems are systems used to provide information and instructions to people in building(s) or other space(s) using intelligible voice communications and including visual signals, text, graphics, tactile, or other communications methods. (SIG-ECS) This section along with 126.96.36.199.2 In-building Fire Emergency Voice/ Fire Communication Systems are probably the most common and challenging.
Adequate coverage and intelligibility are the key components. This requires on-site ambient noise testing and the examination for other types of notification devices. These systems, in a much more basic definition, have been required by OSHA for some time. Whether your facility needs a conventional or explosion proof system, we have the products to meet all needs.
At Ashton, our design engineers are continually being trained on the latest products and design. When needed, we also consult with a local fire engineering company to provide a one time, comprehensive solution that meets all of our customer's needs.
For a more comprehensive understanding of these requirements, we suggest you contact Ashton Sound and Communications, Inc. You may also contact us regarding further customized information or to obtain a copy of NFPA 2010 and to review the sections that apply to your application. Either way, we are your professional, one-time solution to these newer requirements.
