The 78-luxury roomed Pezula Resort Hotel opened its majestic doors on 22 December 2004, giving discerning travellers a taste of exclusive luxury combined with an utterly unique natural experience.
A self-monitoring integrated public address / evacuation system was required in order to facilitate background music, PA announcements and automatic pre-recorded evacuation messages and tones.
The system had to provide for 2 zoned microphones with microphone extensions, to be used by management as well as security. 30 Loudspeaker zones were required. TOA's VM-2000 system is expandable to handle up to 45 zones.
The speakers to be used had to comply with BS-5839 Part 8 and the TOA PC-1867FC Fire Resistant Speaker was selected for this purpose. TOA's PC-3WR shower room speaker was also used because of its ability to operate in high humidity conditions, such as hot showers and Saunas.
The TOA VM-2000 Integrated Voice Evacuation System was used as it could comply with all the requirements. Installed within the amplifiers to check for faults such as shorted, open speaker lines (individual zones) and speaker lines with ground leakage, the SV-200MA Surveillance Module made fault finding, quick and easy. The EV-200 Voice Announcement Module installed within the amplifier, allows playback of 7 pre-recorded messages / tones.
These messages can be triggered from both the microphone as well as external inputs. The system can accommodate as many as four zoned microphones (these can have different priority settings) linked to the system via CAT5 STP cable and the maximum distance between the control system and the last microphone is 800m.
