Ramtech Electronics Announces Launch of WES3
R
amtech
Electronics,
an
industry
innovator
in
wireless
technology
solutions, has launched WES3 – a
new enhanced fire alarm system
that has new benefits beyond its
current WES+ range.
Fully compliant with EN-54 and
developed in conjunction with leading
construction companies, WES3 offers
several new features that mean firms
maximise site safety, helping to
safeguard their employees as well as
important assets.
The new headline feature is the
medical alert, allowing someone the
ability to easily raise a medical
emergency from any call point without
having to cause a complete site
evacuation.
Also included is the new optional
inspection delay, which allows site
managers the time to establish if a
false alarm has been raised. This
feature can also be used to organise
a staged evacuation process.
Another positive feature for site
managers is the pre-alarm function,
allowing the ability to turn off the alarm
sounder on other stations and enable
a lower level alert without triggering a
full evacuation.
A full isolation test mode is included,
which means individual call points can
be tested without the need for a full
system alarm.
Paul Henson, Sales and Marketing
Director at Ramtech Electronics,
comments: “High profile fires on
construction and renovation sites have
never been more talked about in the
media, prompting more and more
companies to really analyse their fire
prevention
equipment.
WES3’s
wireless technology not only allows
units to be moved as a project evolves,
but the system features enhance the
safety of site staff, visitors and the
property asset itself.
“With the addition of a stand-alone
medical alert on each call point and
various features to allow site
managers the ability to truly manage
activity associated with the system, it
is much more than a wireless fire
alarm. When used in conjunction with
our cloud-based monitoring platform
WES REACT, WES3 becomes a total
fire
safety
solution”,
Henson
concludes.

A range of units make up the system,
including call points, interface, heat
detector, dust resistant smoke detector,
link and the all-important base station.
The system is compliant with key safety
standards, including HSG168, the
Structural
Timber
Association
Guidelines, and the Fire Protection
Association Joint Code of Practice and
it is installable to BS5839.
