Generic Electronic Solutions
Thursday 9 July 2009 saw Old Mutual Investment Group Namibia launch the latest leading office development in the country’s capital, Windhoek. And it’s a building with a major difference – the 21 storey building, Mutual Tower, will be Namibia’s first Green building.
January 2010 will see the completion of the N$260 million structure which will serve as the company’s headquarters. But what does being a green building consist of ?
Mutual Towers is designed to reduce carbon emissions through the lessening of energy consumption, therefore ensuring a substantial saving of energy. It will also maximise the use of natural daylight through a large expanse of glazing and will use energy efficient lighting sources and control systems to reduce energy consumption.

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.
