The tallest building in the north, Bridgewater Place in Leeds, has installed over 300 Mini Fire-Cryer Voice Sounders from Vimpex. Bridgewater Place consists of over 2100 m2 of office space, 200 high-rise apartments, retail outlets and leisure facilities. The Mini Fire-Cryer multi-message voice sounders have been installed in all office accommodation at the new site, providing building-wide voice evacuation in the event of a fire. Vimpex’s clients, ADT Fire & Security, chose the Mini Fire-Cryer for its clarity of voice and ease of installation.
