TOA to focus on EN 54 at PL+S7 April 2011
Just prior to the company’s participation at ProLight + Sound (Frankfurt, 6- 11 April), TOA announced that another raft of its products have been given EN 54-24 loudspeaker system certification.
Claiming to be the first manufacturer to offer a total solution for EN 54-certified voice evacuation systems, TOA says that it continues to gain certification for additional products in its range, and has now confirmed that the PC-2369EN ceiling speaker, along with horn and box speakers BS-678BSB, BS-678BSW, CS-64BS, CS-154BS and SC-615BS as well as the PC-1867FC ceiling speaker and BS-680FC steel cabinet speaker have all been given EN 54-24 approval. The entire VM-3000 Series PA/VA System and network-based SX-2000 Voice Evacuation Systems are approved. Next in line for certification is the company’s VX-2000 Voice Evacuation System which should be certified in the near future.
TOA will place a particular emphasis on its EN 54-certified products at the show, and Brett Downing, sales and marketing director, TOA Europe, says the company’s success in this area embraces real-world projects as well as products.
“We were one of the first manufacturers to take EN 54 certification of its products seriously and our track record of supporting the new standards is second to none in the industry,” Downing said. “Long before the new standards passed into law, our customers were designing and installing systems with EN 54 compliance in mind, and we now have systems that meet the new standards in locations as varied as Headingley cricket ground in the 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,” he continued, “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.”
