EvacGo is the easy way to ensure you’re meeting the BS 8629 code of practice recommendations.
Our evacuation alert system, EvacGo, is designed to support safe evacuation of tall residential buildings by the fire and rescue services.
EACIE (evacuation alert control and indicating equipment) installation is mandatory in Scotland and England for residences over 18m.
We make each EvacGo panel using EN54 Parts 2 and 4-approved components from our industry-leading MxPro 5 range. Each panel is designed according to the evacuation alert zones for the building where it’s to be installed.
Toggle switches and LED indication make EvacGo clear and easy for firefighters to operate, implementing evacuation strategies is quick, simple and straightforward – for optimal resident safety.
In addition, we’ve simplified proof of compliance with our ServiceTool, which lets you create customised reports to help ensure you’re meeting service and maintenance schedules.
You can download a BIM object for EvacGo from NBS Source.
EvacGo is available in the UK only.
