Space Age Electronics Code Compliant Shield30 Emergency 2-Way Communication System

Did you know UL 2525 is the new standard for 2 Way Communications Systems for Area of Refuge/ Area of Rescue Assistance? With UL 2525 being the standard, NFPA 72 Chapter 24 is now enforceable by the local AHJ. Shield30 emergency 2-way communication system is  already compliant with NFPA 72 and IBC standards.

Effective emergency two-way communication has been lacking for too long. The Shield30 system provides cutting edge equipment that not only keeps building occupants safe, but cuts down on installation costs while still providing superior hardware. See more information on Shield30.

Does your system provide 24 hours of back up and 4 hours of talk time? Our new Shield 30 take 4 wires and is fully addressable. Contact  Joseph Cervantes for more details.
