If you are looking to design an emergency evacuation system for your factory, warehouse or building, Checkpoint Products can help you all the way with their Cygnus evacuation siren system. The emergency evacuation system is also suitable for evacuation of any worksite including construction sites.

How does the Cygnus evacuation system work?

The Cygnus wireless alarm is a reliable siren system featuring:

  • Easy pushbutton activation: Once one unit is activated, all units are simultaneously activated onsite;
  • Battery powered siren operation: You can safely evacuate your site even during a power outage;
  • Wireless mesh network: Each device onsite acts as a repeater for the wireless signal;
  • LED strobe light: Available in some models.

Key features of Cygnus wireless alarm systems also include: SMS text alerts sent to the mobile phones of all team members; radio voice alerts broadcast over site radios; siren delays allowed to be added for different zones; and free programming app available to change the settings and activate other functions.

Additionally, the Cygnus control panel monitors the system automatically with a display screen of where the alert was initiated. The Cygnus system can also be interlinked with the existing infrastructure through interface panels.

Common evacuation call points

Common evacuation call points: These devices trigger a site-wide evacuation in the event of an emergency or evacuation drill.

Once your evacuation system is in place, it is important to test the system regularly, record the tests as per your company policy, ensure all employees know where to assemble, have a maintenance plan, and ensure sirens can be heard and strobe lights seen in all required areas. Also, get your WHS adviser to confirm that the system is compliant for your application.
