Gamewell's fully digital and networkable audio evacuation systems are able to support up to six channels of digital audio, including line paging and two-way telephone communications, plus various control functions, all operating simultaneously on a single pair of wires or fiber optic cables.
This new technology allows Gamewell to provide an extensive portfolio of integrated fire safety solutions for low- to mid- rise buildings and general areas of assembly, in addition to digital audio solutions for high-rise and campus applications.
In addition, Gamewell's voice evacuation systems can be custom-configured for unique buildings and floor plans, or to meet local requirements for voice evacuation systems.
