Understanding EVC Types

As per BS 5839 Part 9, there are two types of EVC Systems: Disabled Refuge Systems and Fire Telephone Systems:

We offer both Conventional and Analogue Addressable solutions utilising the latest technologies to protect what matters most.

Emergency Voice Communication Systems range from small, stand-alone conventional systems to major projects including graphics based, PC controlled intelligent multi panel networks.

Disabled Refuge Systems

Disabled Refuge Systems Type A typically connects hands free intercom outstations to a central control room and is used to inform management that someone needs immediate assistance to exit the building.

Fire Telephone Systems

Fire Telephone Systems Type B is used by management (and marshals at a sports ground) and the fire service before, during and after a fire to communicate with fire marshals and fire fighters.

Regulations affecting EVC Systems

The Equality Act 2010 (formerly The Disability Discrimination Act) made it the responsibility of all companies, nationwide, to ensure that access to buildings and services is available to everyone.

The installation of an Emergency Voice Communication System is governed by BS 5839 Part 9: Code of practice for the design, installation, commissioning and maintenance of Emergency Voice Communication Systems.
