Public Address & Voice Alarm (PAVA) systems are installed in commercial buildings to provide occupants with clear and concise messaging either in relation to day to day activities or in the event of an emergency when employees need to safely evacuate the premises. If an incident were to occur within your business, such as a fire breaking out, it is essential that your employees safely exit the building as quickly as possible. Although electronic sounders and bells are the most commonly used audible cues in fire alarms, research shows that people are more responsive if they are instead presented with a clear spoken message advising them on what to do.

When businesses don’t have time to deploy signage and warn employees or customers of a potential health and safety concern on the property, a PAVA system can issue a warning so that occupants know not to go to a specific area on the premises.
Most likely to be used in a retail environment, PAVA systems can serve as valuable tools when it comes to a business’ advertising messaging. It can advise customers of promotions or discounts a business is currently running.
Business premises such as warehouses, workshops or supermarkets make it difficult for quick communication with specific employees and customers. Installing a PAVA system allows for a business to prompt a customer or employee in seconds.
