RH Consulting releases new guide to voice alarm systems1 February 2016
RH Consulting has launched a major new edition to their voice alarm systems guide. Originally released six years ago, the e-publication has been updated to provide a comprehensive guide to all types of emergency audio system for consultants, manufacturers, installers and venue owners.
The 200-page guide covers all applications where VA systems are likely to be installed including stadiums, theatres and transport hubs. It contains tables, diagrams and animations and covers standards worldwide, including Europe, Australia and the US as well as delivering comprehensive information on EN54.
“We wrote the book on two levels,” said RH Consulting founder, Roland Hemming. “For those new to the subject it gives a comprehensive overview on how voice alarm systems work and how to understand the different standards. For the experienced practitioner it offers detailed information and tables to allow you to cross-reference what different standards say on each issue.”
A useful feature of the book is an interactive guide and decision tree, which helps the reader work out what standards to use for voice alarm projects around the world.
“This is the first time that such a task has been carried out,” added RH Consulting’s Richard Northwood. “Rather than embroil the reader in the usual confusion over which standard to use, we have clarified and explained why you should use which standard on which project.”
