More TOA products complete EN-54 certification8 March 2011
As the EN54 series of fire safety standards pass into European law, TOA has announced that more of its products have received EN54-24 loudspeaker system certification.
The manufacturer has confirmed that the PC-2369EN ceiling speaker, along with horn and box speakers BS-678BSB, BS-678BSW, CS-64BS, CS-154BS and SC-615BS, the PC-1867FC ceiling speaker and the BS-680FC steel cabinet speaker have all been given EN54-24 approval. The entire VM-3000 Series PA/VA System and network-based SX-2000 Voice Evacuation Systems are also approved. Next in line for certification is the company’s VX-2000 Voice Evacuation System, which should be certified in the near-future.
Next month’s Prolight+Sound exhibition in Frankfurt will see the company place a particular emphasis on its EN54-certified products.
Brett Downing, TOA Europe sales & marketing director, commented: “We were one of the first manufacturers to take EN54 certification of its products seriously and our track record of supporting the new standards is second to none in the industry.
“Long before the new standards passed into law, our customers were designing and installing systems with EN54 compliance in mind, and we now have systems that meet the new standards in locations as varied as Headingley cricket ground UK, Brussels Expo, the O2 Arena in London and, most appropriately, the iconic new OpernTurm building in Frankfurt itself.
“We are especially looking forward to this year’s Prolight+Sound show as it will give us the opportunity to meet our customers and discuss not just the certification of our product line, but also the implications for system design that the new standards bring with them – with a proven track record of project support already behind us.”
