Visual alarm devices guidance

Published:  03 August, 2015

Download a free guide for visual alarm and indicating devices sold in the European Union.

Industry body Euralarm has published an application guideline on primary visual alarm devices and supplementary indicating devices, providing information on the use and requirements of EN 54-23 compliant visual alarm devices. The guide also explains typical applications where a supplementary indicating device may be suitable.

Since January 2014 visual alarm devices (VAD) used for warning building occupants of a fire emergency have had to comply with the requirements of EN 54-23 and suppliers/manufacturers of such devices must fulfil the requirements of the CPR when placing such devices in the EU market.

The document not only explains the mounting requirements and illumination coverage volume of VADs, it also outlines the information that should be provided by the manufacturer or supplier to allow correct application of the device.

The Application Guideline can be downloaded from http://www.euralarm.org/press/publications/
