Community R-Series gets EN54-24 certification

Community R-Series gets EN54-24 certification

Published: MEA

WORLD: Community Professional Loudspeakers has gained EN54-24 certification for its R-Series R1, R2 and R6 loudspeaker systems. EN54-24 is the EU standard for loudspeakers for use in fire detection and fire alarm systems. With this certification, installations will no longer need a separate voice evacuation system for listening areas covered by these R-Series speakers. 

‘While specifiers and contractors have previously had to consider the use of non-EN54-24 loudspeakers with “special application exemptions” to design an effective system, the use of R-Series loudspeakers will make their job easier; they will no longer have to ask for special exemptions or explain to local inspectors why they chose a non-EN54-24 loudspeaker,’ said Chris Barrow, Community’s product manager. ‘R-Series with EN54-24 certification provides specifiers and contractors with the complete solution for large scale emergency voice alarm systems.’

Community gained EN54-24 certification through the international laboratory network of European Notified Body, Intertek. Its Life Safety & Security testing facility in Leatherhead UK has been developed to accommodate larger products used in fire detection and evacuation and had the capacity to test Community’s loudspeakers which weigh between 40kg and 145kg.

‘In many EN54-24 articles, knowledgeable specifiers and contractors have also complained about EN54-24 lacking any performance content or directive for the finished systems,’ continued Mr Barrow. ‘While this may be resolved in the future with EN54-32, R-Series provides contractors with a solution for the missing element of intelligibility now. When the Construction Products Directive (CPD) is superseded by the Construction Products Regulations (CPR) in July 2013, contractors will have to comply with EN54 and specifiers for large stadium and auditorium projects can turn to Community with confidence.’
