Wireless Evacuation and Emergency Alarm System for Construction Sites

Helping construction site managers comply with NFPA241

WES3 is fully customizable temporary wireless system that has been developed and engineered to provide a simple, fast and secure method of communicating fire and medical emergencies in the complex environmental conditions of construction sites. The system is comprised of several different types of units for optimum protection including manual evacuation and medical call points, smoke and heat sensors, interface units, and more. With no wires or cords to install, each unit can be placed unobtrusively according to the site’s unique monitoring needs. This is a system that can grow with your site, adding more units as construction progresses.

How WES3 works

Protecting your site 24/7

The WES3 system comprises manual evacuation and medical alarm call points that are installed on site in accordance with the project’s Fire Plan. These call points are designed so that the system is interlinked, meaning that all areas receive the same audible and visual alert signal, even if the fire is contained to just one of them.

Incorporating heat or smoke sensors into the network provides automatic cover 24/7, ensuring that your construction site is protected even when personnel are not present. When coupled with REACT, all relevant personnel will be notified immediately via text message from anywhere, on site or off, if an alarm is activated.

WES3 Wireless vs Hand Held Air Horn Evacuation

What is the Difference?

Sites across North America are still using the hand-held air horn as a safety device warning of fires and similar incidents. By modern standards, this is sub-standard. Deploying the WES evacuation system on a construction job site vs. the air horn has so many advantages. Let’s look at some differences:

WES Air Horn
Full site wide evacuation at the push of a button Yes No
Addressable system so you know where the activation took place Yes No
Ability to add in heat and smoke sensors giving 24 hour protection Yes No
Visual as well as audible alarm. Distinguishable above background sounds Yes No
Medical call feature giving extra functionality Yes No
