As a global leader and supplier of such systems, we ensure optimum effectiveness for our customers, as our PAVA systems excel in outstanding performance and reliability. Our certified public address and voice alarm systems cover the entire signal chain, spanning from the microphone and call station to the mixer/amplifier, controller, and loudspeakers. PA and voice alarm systems can be implemented to transmit flawlessly clear paging in every part of the building, while also delivering high-quality audio playback. Bosch provides systems and components around the world.

Certification

EN 54-16 certification for Bosch voice evacuation systems

PAVA systems allow safe and controlled evacuation of buildings in the event of an emergency, thereby protecting human lives. All our voice evacuation solutions are EN 54-16 certified and compliant with many local evacuation standards. To guarantee EVAC compliance, installation must also be carried out according to exacting standards. Bosch runs a certified partner program with trained installers to add the extra assurance that these requirements are met.

Easy migration towards IP

Easy migration towards IP

An IP-networked public address system can immediately accommodate changes to building use. When you add or define new areas for use, the system updates the changes effortlessly. All devices across the system are IP-connected, facilitating both centralized and decentralized setups, as well as easy interconnectivity with other systems. Devices in an IP-based system can be managed via OMNEO media networking technology, enabling better audio quality and greater scalability than any other PAVA system.
