In the event of a fire, saving lives is the highest priority. Building occupants need to be alerted as early as possible using alarm devices, so they can evacuate quickly. It is a mandatory requirement for audio alarms to be used as an integral part of the fire detection and alarm system. Visual Alarm Devices (VADs) are used to supplement audio, providing an effective means of alerting and evacuating occupants.
