FIRE BRIGADE ANNOUNCEMENT

The infrastructure of a TCS door communication system can be also used for frie brigade announcements. Thus, all residents of a building can be informed fast, easily and specifically.

The fire brigade announcement is an electronic system for alarming and information that can be used in high-rise buildings. It meets the requirements of the high-rise building regulations. Residents are informed via their indoor station via signal tones, live announcements or recorded announcements.

  • Announcements are played automatically or made directly by members of the fire brigade.
  • The control panel of the fire brigade announcement unit can be implemented as single device in the interior area of the building or it can be integrated into a display front door station.

FUNCTIONS

  • A new TCS door communication system in planning stage can be extended with a fire brigade announcement unit and guarantees – especially in high-rise buildings – a quick information of residents in case of an emergency.
  • The acoustic information of residents is executed via the indoor stations of the door communication system, optionally through signal tones, direct announcements or recorded announcements.
  • The type of informing is unidirectional. Announcements can be selected by the fire brigade according to the hazardous situation. 
  • Indoor stations reproduce announcements or acoustic information with a volume of more than 90 dB.
  • For indoor usage, the fire brigade announcement unit FDE in a saftey cabinet is suitable. The ideal location of the FDE is defined during the planning stage in cooperation with the local fire brigade.
  • For buildings with a lot of residents or for outdoor usage, we recommend the display front door station AD4 with integrated digital fire brigade announcement function and digital name indictaion for up to 1,000 call destinations.

FOR A MAXIMUM OF SAFETY

  • For high-rise buildings according to the GERMAN Muster-Hochhaus-Richtlinie (MHHR) with more than 8 floors
  • integrated error control. The 230 V mains power network as well as the TCS:BUS voltage are monitored
  • Emergency power supply via battery for at least 30 hours
  • In case of a short-circuit of indoor stations and their cable paths, strand disconnectors guarantee a constant usage of all system functions.
  • Devices that are accessible to the public are vandal-proof an lockable.

ANNOUNCEMENTS

Door communication system with announcement function require special audio resp. video indoor stations.

In addition to the door communication with front door stations, the indoor stations can be called by a FDE (AFP10000) or display front door station AD4 for single and group announcements. The allocation of indoor stations to 3 possible groups can be implemented via configuration with the software configo. The signal tone always sounds with the maximum volume of 90 dB.

BENEFITS FOR THE OPERATOR

  • Safety for tenants
  • The more of protection for life and health
  • Door communication and fire brigade announcements in one system
  • Solid running system - solid working functions
  • Planned and audited by independent experts

Project planning

  • Already existing communication systems have to be equipped with TCS indoor stations that can receive fire brigade announcements.
  • Planning and projecting of the system as well as determining groups and the labelling of the control panel are executed in cooperation with the fire brigade. Planning and projecting depend on the fire protection concept.
  • The indoor station of a flat can be assigned to a maximum of 3 groups – independent from the network.
  • The project-specific planning, execution, determination of the installation site as well as the installation have to be implemented solely according to the specifications and in cooperation with the local fire brigade. Due to the experiences made in various implemented and running projects, TCS also can  develop individual solutions in cooperation with customers.
