Sandton's Green Building at night
Absa Capital's new building in Sandton which boasts High-efficiency lighting with motion detectors will cut energy use by 43% compared to a standard lighting system. In addition, space will be allocated for recycling, and the choice of materials used in the building fit-out will give preference to locally-sourced and recycled materials.

Absa Capital has moved to a new building located in Sandton, the heart of Johannesburg’s financial and business district. This brings Absa Capital closer to its target market and go a long way to enhancing its public presence.
To date, the building is one of the greenest buildings in South Africa, with a design that embraces bioclimatic principles and an engineering solution that exceeds local best practice. The state-of-the-art façade includes double glazed, solar performing glass and solar shading. The atrium roof design and internal layouts make maximum use of the natural light. Energy efficient, motion-sensitive light fittings, daylight-sensitive external lighting, solar water heating, rainwater harvesting and recycling will all contribute to minimising the building’s carbon footprint.

Fireman's Zone paging microphone
The TOA VX-2000 Integrated Voice Evacuation System (covered by a 5 Year Warranty), originally built to comply with EN60849:2005 (adopted by SA as SANS60849) is ideal for this type of application where there are multiple zones and each floor is to be treated as an independent zone which is capable of having its own dedicated microphone for the Fire Marshall controlling that floor.
It also provides for Multiple Zone and Fireman's microphones on the system, each with their own priority status as well as phased evacuation as multiple messages and or tones can be broadcast in different zones / areas simultaneously.
The entire system is self-monitored every 100 seconds with fault indications registering on the rack equipment as well as the control microphones. Logs are automatically generated (announcements, system faults, inputs, automatic messages and alarm tones, faulty lines, etc).
It is also possible to utilize the system for BGM (Background Music) as each zone is able to have its own music source and volume levels or the same source can be routed to specific zones, a group of zones or all zones). White noise too, can be integrated with the system.
