The Al Habtoor Polo Resort & Club, described as an ‘oasis of excellence and uncompromising luxury’, is a polo and equestrian community located in the centre of Dubailand. To elevate the experience further, the resort required an audio solution to match its stunning aesthetic. The upgrade, designed in partnership with Master Systems Integrator, Waseela, required a zoned, distributed background music system (BGM) connected via the building’s existing local area network (LAN). The brief also specified the need for synchronized local and central control of source selection and volume, accomplished through elegant wall controllers with an intuitive interface.
The Avani Hotel, renowned for its comfort and connections, is situated in the heart of Dubai next to the famous Ibn Battuta Mall. Seeking to improve the audio experience for guests, the hotel commissioned a professional distributed AV system to provide zonal background music (BGM) and live paging coverage across the building’s fifteen floors.
Home to Lewes F.C., The Dripping Pan is an outdoor stadium that currently houses 3,000 fans. Supported by Lewes F.C. staff, ASL delivered a comprehensive audio overhaul, replacing the club’s previous unreliable and unmaintainable Public Address system with a state-of-the-art Voice Alarm system.
The new, unified audio system plays music with greater clarity, offers better intelligibility of the spoken word, and, crucially, is there in the event of an emergency. As such, EN 54-compliance was a necessity.
ASL was the natural choice, given their extensive portfolio and experience with stadia.
Slovakian highway construction and maintenance company, Národná dialničná spoločnosť, a.s., recently deployed a sophisticated ASL Voice Alarm (VA) system for three motorway tunnels on the D1 and D3 motorways which bypass the city of Žilina
in Northwest Slovakia, spanning over 6km of road. The brief was to provide an EN
54-compliant system for a series of motorway tunnels to allow for the safe and trouble-free evacuation of people in case of a fire event or traffic accident. The system had to cater for acoustic challenges of tunnels and to be centrally controlled and monitored.
In November 1987, a devastating fire took hold at King’s Cross Underground Station. In response to the tragedy, London Underground Ltd (LUL) ensured that installation of voice alarm across all 130+ stations was given high priority.
