Founded in 1753 as an integral part of the British Museum, and moved to its current location in 1881, The Natural History Museum houses one of the world’s most extensive collections of plant and animal life, as well as countless other exhibits from the natural world. Here, rare dinosaur fossils and the lives and ecologies of nearly all the living creatures on the earth, past and present, can be observed, and the number of exhibits continues to grow every year.
TOA’s Voice Evacuation system performs a vital and reliable service in this important facility, and its Digital Announcer-equipped fire alarm panels help ensure complete safety within the museum. The system automatically broadcasts a pre-recorded warning announcement whenever the fire alarm panel receives a signal from any of the connected fire alarm devices, and also permits easy selection of broadcasting zones and manual microphone announcements for maximum operating versatility. A touch-screen map of the museum also contributes to the museum’s business efficiency by permitting calls and message broadcasts to be instantly made.
