Visual Alarm Devices (VADs) are an essential component to most fire alarm systems, providing a visual indication of an alarm condition to those people who wouldn’t normally be alerted to a fire by standard audible-only devices such as sounders and bells. BS EN 54-23 has been in force since 2014, standardising the requirements, test methods and performance of VADs, and ensuring their light output is measured in a uniform manner.
Whether you are a seasoned fire professional or brand new to the industry, join Richard Wharram, Export Sales Manager at Hochiki Europe, as he explains the key aspects of the standard and how Hochiki's VADs range can make your installation compliant in this CPD accredited webinar.
In this webinar we’ll provide a brief overview of the issues faced by installers of fire systems and their customers when dealing with nuisance or false alarms.
