Baldwin Boxall Market Sectors – Leisure

Reliable communication methods are vital to get the message across when there is an emergency and you need people to react fast. Members of the public, when they are relaxing and enjoying themselves, are particularly unlikely to respond to a standard klaxon style alarm.

Theme parks, cinemas, theatres, hotels and indeed any place where people are relaxing and having fun, can provide additional challenges for safety managers. People really do not wish to be interrupted whilst they are enjoying themselves – they want to carry on with what they are doing – making them even less likely to respond to the traditional bell or sounder of a fire alarm. A clear message needs to be broadcast to prompt people into the necessary course of action.

Proper planning, staff training and the appropriate communication equipment all have their part to play in the safe movement of public and staff in the event of an emergency – whether it is a fire, a bomb scare or any other threat to life.

A VIGIL voice alarm (VA) system, with its pre-recorded voice messages, ensures controlled evacuation of any area or structure. Cinemas, holiday complexes, hotels, adventure parks, museums, swimming pools, etc, can, and do, benefit from our EVAS voice alarm systems. The systems are not only used in times of emergency – they also have many benefits and features that can be used every day, such as public address announcements, background music, staff coded broadcasts, timed message broadcast, and more.

A major aspect of the system is the sophisticated, yet user-friendly, zoning, routeing and full audio path monitoring facilities and dedicated battery back-up systems as required in life safety systems.

Baldwin Boxall’s leisure audio management systems are individually designed and configured from our well-proven VIGIL range of voice alarm products. The modular format of these products allows great flexibility in the design of a system, enabling us to provide a complete solution for any leisure environment.

In addition to voice alarm, an EVC (fire telephone and disabled refuge) and disabled toilet alarm or assistance call systems are likely requirements. Installing an Omnicare or Care2 EVC system would fill this need and ensure that everyone is catered for – assisting with the needs of the most vulnerable.
