Honeywell Voice Alarm System Protects HMS Belfast
Formerly a Royal Navy light cruiser, HMS Belfast became a museum ship in 1971 and is now permanently moored between London Bridge and Tower Bridge in London, UK. Each year HMS Belfast attracts around 250,000 visitors.

A Honeywell Voice Alarm and Public Address solution has been installed to help the staff communicate with visitors and alert them in an emergency situation.

Honeywell solution was chosen as it offered the capability and flexibility demanded by this unique environment and great value for money, providing full VA/PA capability for a similar price to many public address-only systems.

The ship's design meant that the choice and positioning of the speakers was critical to achieve good sound quality in a complex multi-level environment with many narrow corridors and metal surfaces.
Honeywell Voice Alarm Systems For Two Major Retail Centres
Two major retail developments benefit from flexible integrated Honeywell voice alarm system

First opened in 1986, today intu Metrocentre is Europe's largest covered shopping and leisure centre with more than 2 million sq. ft. of retail space, and over 380 shops and restaurants, together with an IMAX cinema and leisure complex. intu Eldon Square in nearby Newcastle was established in 1977 and is the UK's largest city centre shopping complex, attracting an annual footfall of 36 million.

Advanced acoustic modeling was conducted as part of the Honeywell Voice Alarm and Public address system installation, providing a step change improvement in the audibility and intelligibility of fire safety messages and other public announcements.
City of Salford Stadium Home of the
Salford Reds
The £16m City of Salford Stadium, home of the Salford Reds Rugby League club was opened in December 2011. The Stadium was initially built with a 12,000 capacity, with plans to extend to accommodate up to 20,000 over time and includes built-in offices, player facilities, hospitality boxes, concessions, community resources and two community outdoor sports pitches available for business and public hire.

The Honeywell D1 voice alarm/PA system, designed specifically for the venue, is a large rack based system comprising three 42u racks and a 19 zone voice alarm/PA system, providing a total power output of 13,000 watts to the loudspeakers throughout the Stadium. The system is fully compliant with the relevant standards for sports stadiums, and meets all of the requirements of EN54 parts 16 and 24.

The cause and effect strategy of the D1 system for the whole Stadium changes according to whether there is a match taking place. The system was programmed to meet both building control and the fire strategy to enable two different modes. One operates during the games to protect the Stadium and its supporters, providing a high quality communications system and the other can be used on a day to day basis, when there is only the club staff occupying the ground.
