Effective and reliable Voice Alarm (VA) systems are imperative in today’s modern retail environment, where shoppers in crowded shops and centres need clear guidance in the event of an emergency to leave via the safest evacuation route. A good Public Address (PA) system allows retailers to play both pre-recorded and live promotional messages throughout stores and malls, which combines with the EN54-certified VA system that ensures shoppers are safe.

ASL provide PAVA solutions for all types of retail environments, and can be used to broadcast background music, emergency messages, and also coded messages that can be used to alert staff of a potential threat or a situation that requires urgent investigation; allowing shoppers to stay calm and undisturbed. Further, our Ambient Noise Sensing (ANS) technology ensures announcements are always delivered at the right volume level and can be heard clearly throughout the day, despite the constantly changing ambient level noise levels typical of shopping centres and large stores.

For retail environments, depending on the requirements, our VIPEDIA-12 based rack systems can be specified, which interface directly with line array loudspeakers that can be deployed in the larger open areas of a mall, or the Integra for more distributed systems. Our products cater for all retail environments, whatever the requirements.
