The Clevertronics Zoneworks Sound Escape System delivers an engineered solution for evacuation from buildings using visual and sound cues.
The Clevertronics Zoneworks Sound Escape™ System delivers an engineered solution for evacuation from buildings using visual and sound cues.
Exits within a building may be obscured from view for a variety of reasons and visual direction alone is not enough to ensure an adequate evacuation time. Existing emergency lighting standards in Australia do not deal with the effects of smoke in the evacuation process.
The effectiveness of Exit and emergency lighting is severely reduced in relatively low smoke densities and exit signs are installed typically at heights of 2.1 to 2.7m above the floor – right in the smoke layer!
By using a localised, directional sound incorporated into the exit luminaires the exit can be heard as well as seen. The sound is localised and directional allowing an individual to distinguish the origin of the sound attached to the exit luminaires, therefore defining the evacuation path and the final point of Exit.
