Cooper Notification, a platform of Cooper Safety, launched its In-Building Mass Notification System (MNS) solution, SAFEPATH MNS (SPMNS), which meets the new Underwriters Laboratories (UL) standards for MNS.
As a new standard, UL 2572 evaluates how a mass notification system performs against the 2010 edition of the NFPA 72 National Fire Alarm and Signaling Code. Compliant with UL 2572 and NFPA 72 2010 codes, the SAFEPATH MNS integrates with a facility’s addressable fire alarm system (FAS) for a complete In-Building MNS solution that performs both fire alarm and emergency communications functions. The SPMNS provides personnel and building occupants with intelligible live and pre-recorded voice messages that communicate what to do in response to an emergency.
The SPMNS manages all audible and visual notification devices in the Emergency Communications System. It features a modular and flexible design to meet the functional requirements of Emergency Response Plans as well as the complexities of the new codes. During a crisis event, Cooper Notification’s In-Building MNS will ensure that the highest priority notification, whether it’s a pre-recorded or live voice message, will be sent to the appropriate audible and visual appliances.
