Being a hospital project, it needed to ensure that all guidelines are met as per EN54-16 standards to ensure safe evacuation of occupants in the building in case of fire by means of audio evacuation messages played by the loudspeakers installed in the building.
Simulation Software’s Used
AFMG EASE and AFMG Sound Flow
Proposal Design Considerations
Conserve Proposed the following Design Considerations from the Simulation results according to the International Standards IEC 60268-16 and EN 54 Fire detection and Fire Alarm System.
- The Sound Pressure Levels (SPL) for each zone
- Sound Transmission Index (STI)
- Ensuring all QCD/QCS requirements are met as per EN54-16 standard
