PANTURA approved by VdS
The digital public address and voice evacuation system PANTURA from the SALZBRENNER STAGETEC has recently been approved by the German VdS Schadenverhütung GmbH. VdS is an independent institution which ensures safety and confidence in the fields of fire protection and security. In December 2011 PANTURA was certified according to EN 54-16. PANTURA is thus approved for unrestricted use in fire alarm systems.
The new Product Directive EN 54 Part 16 came into effect in 2011. It determines many mandatory aspects of the specification public address systems must meet when they are used in fire alarm systems. Devices which fail to meet the standard cannot be used in fire alarm systems. Since the requirements of VdS exceed EN 54-16, VdS approval is widely regarded as a sign of superior security and quality. So far, only a small number of the voice alarm systems on the German market have been approved by VdS.
PANTURA is a digital public address and voice evacuation system which impresses with unsurpassed flexibility and scalability. Applications range from a small public address system to large scale communication systems in conjunction with SALZBRENNER STAGETEC Performance Control. PANTURA installations can be found e.g. at the “Wormser” Culture and Conference Centre, in the City of Worms, Germany, the Acropolis Museum in Athens, Greece and at the Cuvillies Theatre in Munich, Germany.
