PAVA System

Public address and voice alarm (PAVA) systems are an essential part of your fire system, as they allow you to communicate clearly and concisely with all occupants of your premises.

In the event of a fire, they will be used to give the order to evacuate and can reinforce the signal given by alarm sounders that a fire has been detected.

It will also allow the fire brigade, emergency marshals and evacuees to communicate with each other successfully to prevent any confusion and keep everybody safe.
