EN 54-24 Fire Detection and Fire Alarm System - Test for Loudspeaker

The EN 54-24 standard specifies requirements, test methods and performance criteria for loudspeakers designed to transmit fire events as a link between the fire detection system and building users.

This standard specifies two types of speaker environments:

  • Type-A speakers, usually for indoor use,
  • Usually type B speakers for outdoor use.

The purpose of a speaker for the audible alarm as part of a voice alarm system is to provide clear warnings to persons in or near a building that is on fire so that they can take appropriate action according to a predetermined evacuation plan.

The main reason for using an audible alarm system instead of coded alarms with signaling devices is to shorten the response time of vulnerable people in a given emergency and to show clear instructions on next action steps. This means that audible alarm loudspeakers must meet design and environmental requirements as well as minimum acoustic performance to be suitable for applications in fire alarm systems.
