Upgrades and refurbishment to existing equipment

What is a Public Address and Voice Alarm (PAVA) system?

PAVA systems include microphones, amplifiers, loudspeakers, and supporting equipment designed to transmit live voice, pre-recorded messages, music, and warnings to staff and the general public located within a building or facility. This type of public address system utilises the human voice, musical instruments, and other acoustic or recorded sound for public broadcast.

In most cases, this type of system comes with a master controller that allows for multiple channels to be used. These channels are usually divided into different inputs for microphones, messages, music, and other sources such as class change time tones.

The multiple channels and control of the loudspeakers ensures that the PAVA system can be used across the entirety of the building or specific locations within the property to inform those inside of important information, play music, or provide other news, adverts or entertainment.
